That is how I describe life for me the last couple of weeks.
I like doing the A-to-Z Challenge
but as you can tell I didn’t keep up with it this year…
for many days I was getting down on myself for not keeping up with it.
All the while feeling like I was being pulled in every direction known to man.
So last weekend I closed myself in and did some regrouping,
let some things go and spent some time reading and praying…
going to the familiar,
My Jesus who loves me and cares for me and only expects me to be me and nothing more.
I was so busy allowing STUFF to overwhelm me that I was losing me in the busyness of life.
So I gave myself permission to not go anywhere and to slow down and get myself organized.
I am so thankful for a hubby who loves me and helps me every chance he gets.
This weekend he did dishes more often than I can count,
he helped me with a project that needed to be done.
And he made me coffee, fixed me bottles of water and made some good meals…
I am so thankful and blessed to have him in my life.
Along with feeling overwhelmed with so many things on my plate
things were complicated with a computer that didn’t want work,
our mifi card deciding to go belly up, a printer that wouldn’t connect with the computer…
you know multiple computer issues…
that just added to my frustration and
feeling like every way I turned was causing more problems and chaos
than issues being solved.
So this morning I decided I needed to stop and opened my daily devotion and this is what it said:
In acceptance there is peace.
The prayer with it said: Lord, I don’t pray for tranquility or that my problems may cease;
I pray that Your Spirit and love would give me the strength to abide in You
during chaos, craziness and adversity. Amen.
And as I echoed that prayer I felt the peace of Jesus
just cover me and I knew that all would be okay.
What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?
Who do you turn to when you need reassurance?
Oh, I also stopped and picked up pizza for lunch…
it always helps to eat good ole tasty pizza and not have to cook dinner J
