Who do you turn to when you feel overwhelmed?

Ian Aberle

Some schools only have a few weeks left until finals, this is the time when the projects and papers are due. We have pushed them off and now it is time to get them done. But now that you have waited to work on so many projects, it is a little more overwhelming than you imagined it would be. Add to that the stress of finals coming soon and anything else that might be happening in your life. Maybe you try to ease the stress with some ice cream or by procrastination. Either way, you probably only get temporary relief and then you feel the same chest crushing weight as before. What could you possible do to help ease this burden? I would suggest to you that their is someone that cares for you immensely and would love to be there with you to help you in your struggles. That someone is God. 1 Peter 5:7 says "cast all your anxiety on him, because he caress for you." God cares about you and everything you are dealing with right now. Here are some bible verses that show you who you can turn to when you are feeling overwhelmed.

Isaiah 61:2 "When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

Psalm 18:30 "As for God, His way is perfect: the Lord's word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in him."

Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God."

Exodus 11:11 "The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still"

Matthew 28:20 "I am with you always."

Galatians 1:15 "Before I was born, God chose me and called me by His marvelous grace."

Psalm 91:4 "He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge."

Remember that He will always be there for you!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
