Today, I’m overwhelmed. I have been for a while now. Frankly, I don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel on this for several weeks. I’m overwhelmed personally, relationally, spiritually, professionally, financially. This is why I haven’t been getting these posts up ever day. And, frankly, not sure when I will be getting back to daily posts. What that means is today I have to get back to basics. Otherwise I begin to forget God really is on my side. Today, I am breathing. I’m thankful for that. I just finished breakfast. I’m thankful for that. My family is all healthy (a couple minor sicknesses, but nothing life-threatening). I’m thankful for that. My cars are running. My whole family has clothes to wear. The refrigerator and oven both work. I have a roof over my head. I’m thankful for all these things and so much more.
My goal today is to simply keep plugging away at my responsibilities, one at a time. As I plug away, to keep God and His blessings at the front of my mind, thanking Him as often as I can because He really is taking care of me.
Almighty God, I’m overwhelmed today. Thank You for holding me in Your hand. I recently heard a song with a title I love. I can’t even walk without You holding my hand. Please, hold my hand. Lift me up above the waters that would drown me. May I bring glory to You in every relationship and responsibility I have. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
