overwhelmed

i have been overwhelmed

by the world lately
when the world is dark, look for the light

Ebola outbreak

Iraqi Christians

NC teacher salaries

suicide

health concerns

questionable morals

family 

friends

groceries

things of this earth

but what i need to be overwhelmed by

is God

His greatness

His power

His grace

His mercy

His promises

His masterpiece

His work

because as Peter tells us in 1 Peter 4:12 and 13

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. (NIV)

Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn't on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. (The Message)






what has been overwhelming you lately?

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
