Overwhelmed Much??

I don’t know about you guys, but March has been such a busy month for me. Between work, running my businesses, and raising a toddler, I feel like I’ve barely been keeping my head above water! With business picking up more than I could have ever imagined and opportunities flying at me from left & right, I’ve found myself in this weird gray area of feeling grateful, yet overwhelmed. Some days I felt so overwhelmed I literally just wanted to turn my phone off and disconnect from everything and everyone. During those times I also found myself feeling a wave of guilt. I felt guilty because I was consistently praying for increase, God finally answered me, and here I was barely able to handle my blessings. What the heck was wrong with me?? Did I not deserve the life I’d been praying for? Was I not ready for it? These are all the questions I started asking myself when God interceded and reminded me He built me for this and to give myself a break! He reminded me I was only human and I was only feeling extremely overwhelmed because I was relying on my own strength. He reminded me of the simple scripture Philippians 4:13, that says “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” I wasn’t going to last very long on my own strength (how I was feeling made the obviously clear). I just needed to give  how I was feeling to Him and let Him do is thing! I didn’t need to feel guilty for feeling overwhelmed, I simply needed to ask God how to organize my life so I’d never felt that way again. 

 

So if you’re stuck in that fuzzy gray area between “thank you Lord!” and “what the heck did I get myself into?!”... You’re not alone sis! Take a step back and evaluate why you’re so worn out. 9 times out of 10, it’s probably because you’re trying to do it all on your own like you don’t have the King of the Universe on your side. So stop stressing, breathe and give it to God Queen. He’s right there. He never left.
