Overwhelmed

The lyrics appeared on the screen and, unable to stop them, my tears began to flow…

“God I look to You
I won’t be overwhelmed”

My thoughts cry out: but I AM overwhelmed!

I stand surrounded by people during a Sunday morning service, sobbing, warm tears pouring down my face. The weight of the world crashing in from all sides.  Desperate for the burden to ease.

“Give me vision to see things like You do”

Yes Lord, please, I NEED to see everything as You do because I’m drowning in anguish!  Show me what I’m missing.  Give me the perspective as You see it.  Help me shake this despair!

“God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from”

And what I already know returns to my mind with clarity.  Yes, like a life preserver to a drowning woman He is my help.  Miserably, I had fallen into the trap of seeing my problems bigger than my God.  Now, I lift my head up to the Heavens.

“Give me wisdom: You know just what to do”

Yes, Lord, You know what I need to do. My heart is grieving the deep sorrow known only by a mother’s heart while her child struggles.  My heart.  Weighed down.  Burdened.  With recent events and the unseen.  Worries crashing down like waves pounding the shore.  One right after another.

The lyrics repeat:
“God I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed”

Okay, Lord, I lay my burdens at your feet.  I trade the feeling of being overwhelmed for Your peace.  My arms raised, I plead, lift me out of this pit, Lord!

“Give me vision to see things like You do”

I beg, help me see past the turmoil that surrounds me!  You are my hope, to You I will cling.  Clear my sight so that I see only You! Your hope and Your love!

“God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from”

As I wipe my tears, I feel His loving arms around me.  And I am filled.

“Give me wisdom: You know just what to do”

His peace fills me and I know that everything will be all right.  I am no longer overwhelmed.  That simple.  That swift.  Truly, He answers when we call out to Him.  This too shall pass.

Our Heavenly Father is a loving father.  Don’t let the world convince you otherwise!  God isn’t against us.  He is for us.  He sees our pain and longs to be our Comforter.  Will you let Him?

“I will love you Lord my strength”

The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace. Psalms 29:11

“I will love you Lord my shield”

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalms 18:2

“I will love you Lord my rock”

But the Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. Psalms 94:22

“Forever all my days I will love you God”

Yes, indeed, forever and ever!  My redeemer, my Lord!

“Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days Hallelujah”

Yes, our Lord reigns and I will praise Him all my days!
