I couldn’t help but laugh at the first couple months of 2017. When reflecting on 2016, and looking forward to a clean, fresh year, I said (several times), “The next year is going to be so quiet, relaxed and fun.” While it has been, and will hopefully be, fun I would not use quiet nor relaxed to describe the beginning of this year.
What chaos the past week has been, and what calm has my heart experienced.
What an incredible God we serve.
I wish this was something that I spoke as often as I breathe, because it puts everything into perspective. It draws me out of my emotions, situations and attitudes and places all of my focus on the goodness, fullness and power of Christ.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Do you ever feel that there is too much going on in life than you can handle? Do you ever wonder if God allows us to have more than we can handle?
