Does this ever happen to anyone else? Please tell me it does......where all those hundred and one little things you have to do come crashing down in one big pile and you feel like you'll never surface again.
When the to-do list, the emotional chaos, and all the other problems in life combine and weigh on you like you're carrying a thousand pounds around in a backpack.
And then............you get a paper cut.
Just like the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back, you start to cry, and then you cry...and cry....and cry. For, like......ever. And no one around seems to get it. "It's just a paper cut! You'll be okay."
"IT'S NOT JUST THE PAPER CUT!"
I've been living in a semi-constant state of overwhelmedness lately. It's not a fun place to be. And my worst problem is that I am terrified of causing any ripples in the water around me, so I never talk about my problems and struggles. Until they come to a head and I'm
crying sobbing over a paper cut.
So friend, if you're like me, let's remember that God is bigger than our struggles. And when it feels like there's a thousand rocks crashing down on your head, just start taking them off.......one pebble at a time.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
