From Overwhelm to Overflow

Are you living in a place that feels overwhelming? Do the pressures, stresses and expectations of your daily life overtake your thoughts? Does this make you feel overcome with anxiety and worry about how you will get through the day/week/month?

When you are in this place of overwhelm you are relying on your own sense of strength, skill and logic to get you through the day – you have become your own problem-solver and place the responsibilities and burdens of life directly upon your own shoulders. Then you wonder why your mind feels full and your spirit is heavy.

You cry out to Me, but then get frustrated because you can’t hear My voice clearly amongst the noise in your mind and the pressure in your spirit. You feel that I am far away, because you are unable to posture yourself to receive My counsel.


Close your eyes.

Take a deep breath.

I am near.

Look into My face, let all the distractions of life become smaller until I am the largest.

Say out loud ‘I release control Lord, it’s Yours.’

Picture yourself letting go of each thing in your life that is contributing to your overwhelm – place it into Me. Spend some time in worship now and allow yourself to be re-centred so that I am the first and the last within you. Now you will no longer be overwhelmed, but have moved to a place of overflow.

The overflow of who I am within you will gives you victory to move in assurance and confidence every day, without feeling overwhelmed.

Live in the overflow.

Romans 15:13 (NIV)

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Colossians 2:6-7 (AMP)

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in union with Him, reflecting His character in the things you do and say – living lives that lead others away from sin. Having been deeply rooted in Him and being continually built up in Him and becoming increasingly more established in your faith, and overflowing in it with gratitude.
