- to affect strongly.
- to overthrow.
- to cover over completely; submerge.
- overcome by superior thought or feeling.
I've been overwhelmed in my life many times. Life is a journey with both gloriously blissful paths, as well as some dark rocky roads - the two sides of this intimidating word.
To be overwhelmed is to be affected strongly by something, or someone. We can be overwhelmed, or affected strongly, by God's presence. The awe of His peace and power overthrows other thoughts of chaos and doubt.
For lack of a better word, I am stunned, at times, peacefully, gently, safely stunned by how He can take a hot mess of a situation, and change the atmosphere, or settle a storm. He opens the heavens and rains down blessing after blessing...... a flood of blessings, and I am overwhelmed by His goodness; completely covered by His love, and submerged in His grace.
This is not a fairytale!
Next time you feel overwhelmed with something negative, choose to remember that God is greater than your circumstance.
Next time you are overwhelmed with sadness, purposely ponder the truth that God will never leave you, nor will He forsake you.
When fear and anxiety assault your soul, bravely fight back knowing the Power within you is more than sufficient to conquer.
