when life piles up on you.
when the pressures seem to multiply.
there’s an answer for that.
God doesn’t give us overwhelming situations so that we will be overwhelmed, but so that we’ll give them to Him.
Recently, there have been a lot of areas in my life where I feel burdened and overwhelmed:
several friends rejecting Jesus and pursuing sin.
a sweet Pastor dying suddenly of a heart attack.
my close friend having a miscarriage.
coming off a full summer.
my husband beginning work on his doctoral degree.
In all these things, the lesson God keeps teaching me is this:
God wants these pressures to take me closer to Him. Closer.
Got problems? Pressures? Overwhelmed?
Take it to Jesus. Just keep running to Him.
