What You Can Expect From God When Overwhelmed

I write this post today over the course of approximately 6 nap times. In this season of my life, I am a new mom to my sweet little 4-month-old son. My days are consumed with nursing, nap times and trying to keep my business moving forward to help my family. Overwhelm frequently knocks on my door these days.

I don’t know what your season of life looks like but I can assume if you are here reading this, maybe overwhelm has been harassing you lately as well.

If in the midst of a stressful season you’ve ever found yourself asking questions like, “Where is God when I am overwhelmed,” “What does He think about my overwhelm,” or “What can I expect from God in seasons where I am overwhelmed?” then this is for you.

Here are some verses that point us towards God’s heart for us when we find ourselves overwhelmed and what we can expect from Him when we are in over our heads.

Prayers For Hard Times - 5 Prayers For Strength During Hard Times

I get it. Some seasons of life can be so tough to endure. It can be hard even to know what to say to God. That’s why we’re going to look at 5 prayers for hard times based on 5 powerful passages of scripture. 

I am pretty open on this blog about the challenges I have faced. I went through a season where my marriage almost fell apart. My husband and I had several friendships end really badly. We lost two babies to miscarriage. 

As I am writing this post, we are two month into a move we made across the country. We are now over 1000 miles from home and family with our three-month-old baby where we know no one. 

Life is full of seasons of hard times. Today I want to share some verses and how I would turn these verses into prayers for strength in difficult times. You were created for a life of abundance and joy in the Father, but unfortunately, in this life we have troubles. What are some bible verses for anxiety and fear that we can turn to find rest and freedom? 

I am glad you asked.

Today we are breaking down some of my absolute favorite passages and verses about anxiety and fear. We are going to see what the bible says about fighting fear and worry. And of course, I am going to do my darnedest to remind you how crazy loved you are.

How To Forgive Others: 10 Bible Verses On Forgiveness

How about a deep dive into some verses about forgiveness? One of the most challenging commands in scripture to adhere to is the command to forgive others. It can be hard to wrap our minds around the fact that we are supposed to forgive people who have hurt us and let us down.

Here’s the thing about forgiveness: It is not for them. It is for you. Forgiveness is a key that lets you out of a prison build on unforgiveness with walls and bars constructed of bitterness, anxiety, resentment, and bondage. 

Forgiveness does not mean the person is innocent or that what they’ve done isn’t wrong or hurtful. Forgiveness is you choosing not to remember their actions against them. Forgiveness is you deciding to move on free, whole and healed. Forgiveness is your declaration that you aren’t going to live as a victim anymore. 

Here are some excellent bible verses on forgiveness to help you on your journey.

Verses And Prayers For Pregnancy After Miscarriage

Pregnancy after loss can be scary and challenging. Good news is there are scriptures and promises that can be used as prayers for expectant mothers who have experienced miscarriage and loss. 

This is still a hard topic for me to address. I feel an obligation to speak on it due to the fact that 1 in 4 women have experienced miscarriage or infant loss. 1 in 4 and yet no one seems to talk about it. For something that is unfortunately so common people don’t seem to know what to say or how to respond when the ones around us experience this tragedy. 

Today I want to share three verses to pray when you are pregnant after a miscarriage to help combat fear and anxiety. I am going to share the scriptures but also why they impacted me and just in case you are newer to praying scriptures I will share what my prayers might look like when praying these particular verses.

3 Tips For Building New Friendships After You've Been Hurt

Community is so important. We were created for connection. How can we make friends and grow relationships after we have been hurt and let down? How can we push past offense and disappointment to embrace new opportunities for building a community?

As Mike and I prepare for our cross-country move from West Virginia to Colorado(we’ll already be there by the time you read this.) one of the most significant challenges ahead of us is establishing community and making new friendships.

9 Scriptures To Help You Survive The Storms Of Life

I try my best to provide content that reminds you how loved you are and how valuable you are to the Father. I strive to provide encouragement to chase your dreams and to believe God for big and bold things. I want you to be kind to yourself and others because you are overwhelmed by how kind God is towards you. 

But I also want you prepared and equipped for when life gets tough because life will get tough. Stormy seasons of life are inevitable. Jesus even warned us in John 16:33 that trouble will find us in this life. He didn't leave it there though. That warning is actually sandwiched between promises that He has already overcome and that He is with us.  

Today we are going to look at some awesome verses for surviving the storms we find ourselves in. These are my favorite kind of posts to write because I just get to pack them full of scripture.
