Today was one of those days. Everything seemed to be the number one priority and I couldn’t seem to grasp on to a schedule that put things in order. Pulled in every direction is my absolute least favorite direction to be, and yet it had my head spinning as I ran full force into task after task. I was worried things wouldn’t be done in a timely fashion. I struggled with the feeling of being overwhelmed, of not being enough for my work, not enough for my home, not enough for my Bible study.
At the end of the day as I clocked out, my neck and shoulders tense from the stress, I realized not once did I take my burdens and my overwhelming feelings to God to bear the weight. I tried to handle the day on my own. How many of us do that on the daily? I’m guilty of it, especially today. I’ll get so frazzled and forget that my first call out should be to my Heavenly Father.
Psalm 61:1-2 says, “Hear my cry, God; Give Your attention to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
Even when my heart is faint from the heaviness of the load, God will still hear my cry to Him. He’ll lead us to the Rock of our Salvation and hold us up during the battle that rages around.
Dear friends, I pray that this week as you struggle with the overwhelming tasks that have you weary from handling it by yourself, that you know that you are not alone. Call out to our Savior, “Hear my cry, God!” and let Him take you into His shelter.
