Recently, I’ve been trying to sort out some stuff and I’ve just been planning. I try hard to put things in place and thank God it’s going fine so far. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed and I just want to escape but I know the things I’m doing are very much important and maybe I need to pace myself and take my time. Then again, is there really time?
Today I did nothing physical, I mostly rested but of course, my head was projecting and planning things and I felt like there’s just so much to do.
I feel like my prayers are being answered because I asked for what is happening; I asked for direction in my life and I finally feel like I have a sense of that. I now know where to go and what to do but I still feel it so much like it’s a lot to take in and ponder on. Maybe that’s why it feels overwhelming.
Sometimes I even compare myself with others but I tell myself to stop. I’m aware of my strengths and weaknesses, I’m aware of most of the things I do. I know that when I feel overwhelmed or a bit discouraged, I shut off and I clear everything I planned to do whether there are deadlines or not. That’s not healthy.
These past few day, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and this evening, I felt it all strongly too. Something urged me to listen to the voicenote a friend sent to me back then where she prayed for me, reminded me of God’s promises and made some declarations over me. I listened to it and I was encouraged, I felt better, I was convinced that I’m not alone and all is going on fine.
I also listened to music and now I’m watching a movie (I obviously paused it to do this).
Why am I telling you all this?
Maybe there’s a lesson there you can take or not necessarily a lesson but something you can take from all that. I know I learned to go back to God’s promises over my life (not that I didn’t know that, I was just reminded).
Secondly, when you feel discouraged or overwhelmed, it’s okay to take a break and get yourself, just don’t stay there too long. Watch a movie, sleep, listen to music, talk to a friend, go back to some of the promises of God over your life and realize that everything is under control.
Haq. I think I just advised myself. Well until tomorrow, goodnight ♥️
