Life is seemingly moving at the speed of light! Not only does it seem that we are in hyper-speed mode, it can feel like so many things are coming at us all at once. That feeling of being overwhelmed seems to be constant for a lot of people—especially women.

I know exactly how you feel.

Here’s my, I’m overwhelmed and need help right now prayer: “God help me refocus!”

Think about it, being overwhelmed means that you are “seeing” too many things at once which makes you unable to focus on anything at all. All of the images swim around and around — the bills to be paid, the clothes to wash, the job project to work on, the kids homework, and oh yeah, why I’m mad at my husband — causing you to feel more and more like you are drowning in your life. What you need in times like this is the ability to focus on one thing at a time (preferably the most important thing first).

This is our last week unplugging for this summer. The message today is short and sweet: refocus on what’s most important.

Grab your journal and take 10 minutes alone to de-clutter your mind, refocus, and stop feeling overwhelmed.


Reflection for this week:

Scripture: “You let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction” Psalm 23:3 (MESSAGE)

Reflection: List all of the things that have you feeling overwhelmed. Now ask yourself, “What does the Lord want me to focus on in my life right now? Why that thing?
