Oh boy, that's a problem.
OK, I won't think about that right now, I'll think about this.....wait.
That is stressful. I can't think about that.
I'll think about this. Uh oh. Thinking about that drives me crazy.

Ever have those times where it feels like every aspect of your life is a mess?
Ever look from home to work to health to finances and wonder how every little piece of it seems to be falling apart at the same time?

Well, you and I are not alone. I don't know anyone who isn't struggling with something.

I have a girlfriend who is dealing with health problems and her dad just had a serious accident.
And I know a mom who is worried because her daughter just enlisted.
And another lady whose daughter is thinking maybe life isn't worth living.
And the dad who is raising a daughter on his own because his wife died of cancer.
And the young couple who miscarried.

What do you do when it seems like every where you turn seems to be turned upside down?
Let God speak to your heart.

For the days when it seems like tomorrow is too overwhelming to handle.
"So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:34 (NLT)

For the days when you can't possibly share your burdens with anyone.
Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 (NLT)

For the times when you feel that you are alone.
What's more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. Genesis 28:15 (NLT)

When you feel like what has to happen to make this work is impossible.
Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God." Mark 10:27

And always, always remember you are loved.
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17
