Lately, I’ve really needed to read these Bible verses for when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Almost everyone I know is fighting overwhelm right now, it’s everywhere I look. It’s scrolling through my Twitter feed and it’s in threads on my Facebook page. Everyone is trying to find balance as they struggle to juggle being a spouse, a parent, an employee, a boss, a friend, and more every day. It’s a lot of pressure and sometimes it easily catches up with us.
It makes me sad to see so many people drowning in this sea of overwhelming pressure. It’s important to manage it and seek a comforting place to rest our hearts when it feels like the burden is too much.

I recently realized I wasn’t doing enough to feed myself spiritually. I had a lot of different things demanding my time but nothing did anything to comfort me spiritually. I needed to balance my spiritual needs with the demands of family and career that were monopolizing my time.
It’s easy to feel that overwhelmed stress when you’re juggling so much and sometimes you need to steal a few moments to sit and talk with God. It provides a lot of comforts and to help I put together a list of my favorite Bible verses for when you’re feeling overwhelmed. I started practicing yoga with at home videos through yogadownload.com and I blocked out time to sit, relax, and read.
