Between work, school, caring for loved ones, making time for friends, working out, and everything else that we have to do, life can become overwhelming. The busyness of our days can really get the best of us if we are not mindful.
Being overwhelmed can look like moodiness, withdrawing from friends and family, exhaustion, trouble focusing, and so much more. These intense emotions can be really difficult to manage alone.
The good news is that we don’t have to carry this heavy burden alone, we have a God that will carry it with us. The bible is filled with scriptures that tell us to rely on God for our strength. If you are feeling overwhelmed that may be a good indicator that you need to pause, read God’s word, and rest in Him.
Here are 10 Comforting Scriptures for when you feel overwhelmed:
“When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.”
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
“I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!”
“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary.They will walk and not faint.”
“O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety,”
“The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.”
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
1 Peter 5:7
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
