When I feel surrounded by troubles. When I feel weak. When I'm too tired and too over whelmed to take on my responsibilities, I readjust my focus. I am not strong enough. He is. When I am sad. He is joy. When i am troubled, He is peace. He made Case in His image. He made him my son. The only way I can get through life with out losing my mind over small and big problems his to focus on Him.
I read a short devotional today and this part really stuck out:
"You will not find lasting peace in the world around you, in circumstances or in human relationships. The external world is always in flux-under the curse pf death and decay. But there is a gold mind of peace within you waiting to be taped. Take time to delve into My resting presence."
So to answer the question I've heard a thousand times, "How do you do it? How are you not overwhelmed?" That is how. I "tap into His gold mind of peace."
Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Colossians 1:27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
