Verses for the Overwhelmed Heart - 4 Scriptures to Fight Overwhelm & Fatigue

     We all know how it feels to be completely overwhelmed. I feel like I have been super acquainted with this feeling lately. From planning a wedding in less than three months to quitting my job to pursue my dreams, I have been a little overwhelmed. I currently feel like I am standing on a cliff looking across a huge Grand Canyon sized valley at my success with nothing but a couple 2x4's and a hammer at my feet trying to figure out how to even start building the bridge to get over there.

If you are in this place today as well, then here are some of my favorite scriptures for when life is just plain overwhelming. If you are not in this place you should still maybe jot these scriptures down for next time life sneaks up behind you and starts pelting you with expectations and deadlines.

The More I Seek You

I wanna sit at Your feet
Drink from the cup in Your hand
Lay back against You and breathe
Feel Your heartbeat
This love is so deep, It's more than I can standI melt in Your peace, It's overwhelming.
Guys, this song has been on repeat in my mind all day. They even played at church this evening. That line... "Lay back against You and breathe, feel Your heartbeat" Is my prayer. I just want to fall into His embrace. It's the only place that I know of to run to knowing I can just rest.  In His presence I can breathe. His presence is like breathing and I have one of those moments where I realize that I have been holding my breath for far too long. I just need Him closer than my skin. I can't stand any space between us. I want to hear His heartbeat. I want to memorize His heart. 
I don't know if this is making any sense. I just keep thinking of Psalm 42 where David says, "Like the deer pants for the water, so my soul pants for you God. When can I get to this God?" I am desperate for this God. I can't live without Him. I can't breathe without Him. 
My soul is hungry for more of Him this evening. I love these kind of evening. May they never fade.
