If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all you have to deal with, take a deep breath with this thought: you don’t have to do everything at once. Take another with this truth: you are not alone. Take one more in this certainty: you are completely and perfectly loved. Spend a moment with God, long enough for him renew to your mind, and encourage your heart.
Ask him what to focus on first. Whatever you have the greatest peace on, do that with him. When that’s done, move on to the next thing with him. Not only will you be more effective, you’ll bring his strength and wisdom to each task, and his grace and peace to every relationship.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Don’t depend on your own understanding, but rather seek his will in all you do, and he’ll show you which path to take” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
