Looking to Him

Ever feel like life is overwhelming? Our lives are full of responsibilities, challenges, deadlines, and items on our to-do lists. Many times when life has become overwhelming, I am tempted to stop leaning on Jesus and begin focusing on all those other things. Soon I realize, I need to return my focus to Him by spending time in God’s Word and in prayer.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). He promises to direct our paths and that His mercy endures forever. Those promises help me remember that my earthly life may seem overwhelming but God is always with me and I can always lean on Him.

If you find yourself overwhelmed, you may find this devotion a helpful reminder to trust the Lord: “When You Feel Overwhelmed.”
