DAY 130

Having a bear of a Monday?

I woke up worn out. Had dreams where I felt like I had to work all night. Whew - glad it's day.

On my morning walk, I figured out I was feeling overwhelmed. Ugh! Not just feeling, but I am overwhelmed.

overwhelm - actually means to be overcome. Comes from whelm - which means completely submerged. So by saying I am overwhelmed means I am completely submerged by ... fill in the blank. Mine is things I need to do and haven't-chores, writing, things I think I should have done.

Actually, I am happy to discover what that overwhelm means. Now I know how to fight.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

2 Peter 2:19
While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

Whatever has you feeling overwhelmed has you in bondage. Yikes, I am joining the Overcomers! No more feeling overwhelmed.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Read the promises of the overcomers in REV 2 and 3.

Ahh, I feel better now.
