Help Me! I’m Overwhelmed!
As our world changes, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by fear.
Sometimes life’s overwhelming changes can cause us to spiral.
Or, we can experience hormonal changes, or body changes filling our minds with deep insecurities.
During these seasons, we can LEARN TO BE overcomers instead of being overwhelmed.
The Good News
The good news is we have a mighty God who cares about all we are facing.
Indeed, He loves us with an everlasting kind of love and is eager and available to fill us with all that He is.
As we willingly choose to open our hearts to know God, we will begin to trust that there is truly nothing too big for Him.
In fact, in everything you and I will ever experience—God has already begun establishing good works.
The Hope of Philippians 1:6 When We Are Overwhelmed
“Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
When we fail to see God’s hand at work, we can press into His word to prepare our hearts.
Also, we can learn to withstand what is to come and find true rest in His strong ability to lead us courageously through.
A Book Written to Help When We Are Overwhelmed
Courageous Women of the Bible, Leaving Behind Fear and Insecurity for a Life of Confidence and Freedom is a powerful guidebook.
Each chapter reveals how to be firmly grounded in the truth that can withstand our personal times of testing.
It’s a powerful thing to courageously confess that our struggles are real and then acknowledge our God who is bigger than our struggles.
How refreshing for our weary souls to find confidence knowing we are not helpless women.
Instead, we are overcoming women who find our courage because of two particularly important things: the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimonies.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimonies.”
Do You Have a Testimony?
Honestly… Do You feel you have no testimony to help you overcome the enemy’s voice becoming progressively loud in trying to destroy your faith?
Or, do you feel you’ve made too many mistakes and God could never use a girl like you?
No matter our past failures, God wants to use a girl just like you!
Just like me!
In love, God will teach us to pursue wisdom for creating a better tomorrow–for ourselves and for those we love.
Hang in there, friend! God is with you!
In addition, remember: your stories are actually testimonies, in process.
And, in the same way, the women of the Bible who lived thousands of years ago discovered courage while pressing through some of life’s biggest hardships and trials.
Even more, we can learn how to bring positive change to the world around us regardless of the many difficult trials we are currently facing because of God’s great love and power made available.
Are you overwhelmed by His love and goodness for you, yet?
I hope so!
Go Courageously, Sister!
