Have you ever felt overwhelmed? Yesterday afternoon I thought about four major projects I need to finish in addition to every day tasks. I asked myself, “How will I ever get done?”
Maybe I can’t get done. Maybe I’ve taken on more than I can do.
As I stared out the window, I thought about running away but laughed. That was not an option. I considered dropping one of my goals. Sadness and disappointment set in. That wasn’t an option either.
Finally I pleaded, “God, help me. What can I do?”
The answer came. I looked at the project that is due first. As I read the guidelines, I noticed the project consisted of five steps. I sat at the computer and put in two dates on my calendar to work on that first step.
With wisdom from above, I realized I could focus on the first project and dedicate time weekly to work on it. The second project is due by the end of June. I can work on that afterward.
After the completion of the second project, I can tackle my third and fourth projects, which are similar. I can work on them at the same time.
What do you do when you worry about getting a job or a project done?
Psalm 107:6: “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.”
Dear God, I cry out to you in my troubles, and they are many. Amen.
Application: When will you allow the Lord to deliver you from your distress?
