I feel so overwhelmed
Lord, help! Some days I am so overwhelmed and exhausted that I want to give up. I’d run away, but I am too tired. I can’t keep up. I don’t know how much longer I can keep juggling my job, marriage, children, house, bills, and all the other demands put on me.
Many days I feel like a failure in each area of my life. I can’t work on improvement when every day I’m just reacting to the next crisis or problem. I don’t feel proud of anything I do. I just can’t get ahead. “Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched” (Psalm 69:1-3).
Lord, please help me! Send relief from heaven. I know you want me to be self-sufficient. I know you want me to stand on my own two feet. But my burdens are more than I think I can bear. I appeal to your love. I appeal to you as my Father. Do what all good fathers do when their children are going under; come with your greater strength and bring help. I call to you and trust in your mercy and wisdom. Please come today and help me!
