When I Am Overwhelmed…

“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.” Psalm 61:2

When I am overwhelmed by the loss and suffering around me, I remind my heart that God is not overwhelmed.

When I’m praying for comfort for others, I remember that He is the God of all comfort and I ask Him to show up in tangible ways.

When I am asking God to show me ways to love on those who are hurting, I am reminded that I am not called to fix it but to show love and let the Almighty step in and do His thing.

When I am mad at the enemy for seemingly winning some ground I remind my heart of our VICTORY in JESUS and that I know the end of the story.

When I look around and see despair, I remind myself that Jesus Himself said there would be trouble in this world, but not to fear because HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD.

I must tell my heart, and those whom I love that are hurting, that our HOPE is built on NOTHING LESS than Jesus’ blood and righteousness!!

  1. Today I feel as if I’m loosing my marriage, husband, and it’s only been a year and seven months and six days! And my heart is broken already. I need prayer for my marriage myself and my husband before it’s too late.

    1. Praying for you. Hang on with all your might, pray like never before, rebuke the enemy & cast him out of your home & your marriage & most importantly offer your husband the most love & respect you have ever shared before even if he doesn’t deserve it. God is still in the healing business, even broken marriages, so I am praying he will mend even the tiniest fracture in the mighty name of Jesus!!

    2. I am so sorry! Praying for you! I am in the same situation with my marriage. Don’t give up! Just pray and pray!

  2. I am praying daily for a dear cousin who lost her husband after only a 5 week battle with cancer. Her heart is broken and mine breaks for her and with her. Thank you for this beautiful reminder that I will share with her. God Bless you Candace, I am so blessed by your devotions.
