I chose to operate in overflow and not overwhelm.
Taking today as a mental and physical break.
I keep seeing deadlines pop up one after the other. Then I’m expected to complete everything at once.
So what do I do? I take a break and regroup. God’s got me. So I’ll wait for him to give me his strategy. I’ll tell you about it soon.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
When I start to doubt myself, I use the verse above as a reminder that it’s not of myself that I will succeed. I am strengthened by Christ. And he enables me to do more than I think is possible.
I don’t express fear or discouragement verbally but I am able to identify behaviours that indicate that I am doubtful about something. Like now, for example, I was subconsciously doubtful about whether I’d pass the supplemental exams for the courses I failed. My tell-tale signs were: not reading or watching the recorded lectures, and telling myself I had “enough” time.
So I turned to Daddy as his words comfort me whenever I need him. I was reassured that not only am I strengthened by Jesus, but the Holy Spirit will help me to study, remember and give me wisdom, knowledge and understanding for the exam.
I don’t walk through life alone. I have the Trinity (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit).
I’m at a point in my life where I’m taking stock.
I see changes happening and I picture more to come.
But what I love about God is that he’s unchanging. Right at this exact moment, he is the same as he was in the days of Abraham. And I’m positive that he’ll be the same God in 100 years to come and throughout eternity.
I don’t have to wonder if I’ll like his new behaviour or if he’ll change his mind and leave me…. No, he’s still the same One who promised to never leave me.
