When You Over Feeling Overwhelmed!

By Renee Burt

Psalm 61:2 NKJV~ From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.


Yesterday, I got up at 5:30 a.m. and hit the ground running. I grabbed a cup of coffee and was on my computer working by 5:40 a.m. About two hours later, I stopped long enough to jump in the shower and gulp down some breakfast. Then I headed into work for a 13 hour day. Thankfully, that's not my normal schedule, but once in awhile it's necessary. Now, when it was all over, I came home feeling great about how well that long day had gone. But then I made the mistake of looking ahead to what was on my calendar for today. I instantly felt overwhelmed. I went to bed feeling that way, and I woke up this morning feeling that way. So, I did what the Psalmist David did...I cried out to the Lord...He didn't mind...He knows we'll sometimes be overwhelmed. So it's not about "if"...it's about "when" it happens, what do we do? Cry out to Him and He'll lift us above it all. I've still got the same things on my calendar that I did before I cried out to Him...but He's lifted my heart up. Gotta run now, but I've determined that I'm going to stay in this place (above the cares of life) with Him all day...want to join me?

Psalm 61:2 NKJV~ From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
