A sweet friend of mine leaned across the choir row to me this morning before church and said, “I am so glad I saw your Facebook post about feeling overwhelmed! I have been too. You seem to always have it all together!”
Oh my! I need to stop this lie right now!
Here is my post from my personal FB page:
I am feeling so overwhelmed right now. I don’t know which way to turn. And it’s not bad stuff…just a lot of stuff. I’m trying to prioritize so I don’t shut down. I’m needin’ a little power that doesn’t belong to me. Just breathe and do the next thing…
Now keep in mind that this blog is all about being real and being honest. So please humor me while I honestly set the record straight: I do not have it all together.
There you go.
When I put out that FB post, my mind was swirling in a hundred different directions and I thought my head was going to spin right off. I was stressing out about some deadlines I had coming up, the kids were being a little difficult, and I was thinking about a new, rather large, freelancing project that will begin for me this next week. And then on top of that, I’m attempting to research and plan a two week vacation trip to England for my family. Plus I’m homeschooling, teaching Bible in Awana, and doing all of my normal every day activities. Even going to the grocery store this past week seemed like a monumental feat.
I’m good now.
I’m not stressing.
I’m taking things one day at a time.
At least I am right this
And I’m trying to stay away from stress eating, because I’d like to actually lose weight before vacation this year.
I have a feeling we’re all in the same boat. We’re just in boats with different talents and abilities. Our boats are in different amounts of water, too. Some of our boats are going through storms while others of us are in a lull of smooth sailing.
And it’s all good. At least it is for me.
I know the One who walks on the water and calms the storms.
