Be Still When You Are Feeling Overwhelmed

peace be still

Do you ever have days, just normal days, where things just feel overwhelming? Not for any know reason, because after all, it is a normal day. Sometimes I feel this inner nudging that life in general is just overwhelming and I am not sure why. I am not talking about those times when you know you have a ton of things going on and life is just crazy for a few days. I am talking about that quiet tugging that makes you stop and go “What is that feeling?”

I have to stop and ask God if he is trying to tell me something.

Is he trying to tell me I am trying to be a super mom/wife when I don’t need to be?
Is he trying to tell me I am taking on more than he wants me to?
Is he trying to tell me I am trying to control my life when in fact he is in control?

For me, its probably all of those scenarios, and more. What about you?

It is times like this that we need to stop what we are doing, head to our prayer “closet” and have a heart to heart with God. Ask Him “Why am I feeling this way”? Pray and wait quietly for Him to speak to you. Sometimes we just have to sit and wait for Him to talk back during our prayer time. Do you ever pray and then just sit and listen? That is probably hard for a lot of us. We want to quickly pray and say Amen and go on with what comes next in life. We need to train our selves to listen to His voice. I know its hard for some of us. But we can do it.

Let me challenge you to pray and sit quietly for as long as you can this week to see if you can hear His voice.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.  Psalm 46:10
