From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Psalm 61:2 (NIV)
It is so easy to feel overwhelmed.
I love that the Bible is full of verses that encourage me when I’m wondering how I’m going to make it through the day, or the week.
I find when I’m feeling overwhelmed I have a few go to Bible verses.
Psalm 61:2 is one of them because it reminds me:
- I am never too far for God to hear my plea’s for help
- When I’m pushed to the edge of my limits God is my refuge and strength. And with one arm he can lift me up to reside in him.
Ponder: What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? Are there any bible verses that encourage you? Share them in the comments.
Prayer: God, you know that I’ve reached the edge of my limits. Please come and be my refuge, a safe place to rest. Amen.
