It's easy to feel overwhelmed when the curve balls of life feel like they're aimed at you day after day, year after year.
Trials and concerns affect every one of us at one time or another, in fact I've never met a person immune to them, but some seasons in life hammer us with troubles that arrive back to back or piled one atop the other, causing upsets and emotions we may find difficult to contain.
A sense of hopeless anxiety, darkness and despair threatens to swallow us, and perhaps, if you're like me, sometimes we wish we could close our eyes and not wake up.
When I feel this way it's a red flag that I'm not spending enough time with Jesus; it's a sure sign I've closed my ears to His comfort and strength and bought into the lies of a world with no answer.
If this is your life at the moment, if you have challenges which make no sense and life feels out of control, go to Jesus. Fall at His feet and let your tears wash over them. You don't have to be strong on your own, you need only to offer Christ your weakness because in your weakness He will make you strong. (2 Cor 12: 9-11)
He is our Helper, our Saviour, the Lover of our soul, our Redeemer and one true Friend.
Give it up to Him, let it go....do not fear.
