Hang on tight to what you know...


I feel a little bit like that boy in the picture. I want more than anything to curl up on my couch at home and hide from the world. But I know that things are going to get better, life will feel right again, and that I'm not alone in this. It feels nice to admit that I'm a mess, because we all get that way sometimes, right? 

What do you do when life feels overwhelming? What do you do when things are spinning around you, and you can't keep up? Hang on to what you know...

I know that God is in control

I know that I am loved beyond measure

I know that there is a bigger story going on than just me and my life.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Here are some encouraging things I've been reading lately:

Keeping Rhythm and Balance

When Life's Unfair 

The Release of Freedom

Don't forget to breathe

From Despair to Dawn


  1. I seriously have tears in my eyes right now over a situation I haven't been able to cry over yet. Thank you for posting this! I so needed to be reminded of God's truth today.

  2. It is so easy for us to be overwhelmed...I tend to be this way a lot when too many things complicate my life. I do not deal with stress well at all!

    Hope you feel better soon.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you!
