Are you feeling today that there is just too much to do?

I remember a time in my life when I felt like I was drowning under the obligations of being a woman, wife, mother, director of women’s ministries, friend, sister, and daughter. There was so much to do to keep up with family relationships, to keep up the house, to keep up with my job, and to keep up in my walk with God. I literally felt I was drowning in obligation, and continually coming up short.

3 questionsDo you find it difficult to say “no” when an opportunity comes your way or someone asks you to do something?

stressedwoman2These are stressful times we live in. But that doesn’t mean we have to fall apart as a result.

Everywhere I turn I hear of women who have experienced unimaginable heartaches, marriages that are in crisis, families that are financially strapped, and people struggling with cancer and disease.

But depending on others during stressful times can backfire on us:

focusDo you ever feel like giving up? I know I do. But that is usually when I’m focused on my feelings, rather than the facts.

My feelings — and yours — are unreliable because they change  all the time. Our feelings are influenced by our circumstances, our moods, and our hormones. And so, our feelings should never be left unchecked, or be the cause for our major decisions. We should, instead, rely on the facts — which never change.

stress signI know how you feel.

Life seems to be going in a million different directions. There are so many things for you to do in so little time.  Kids are pulling at you or your job is pushing you. Responsibilities abound. And there’s only one of you.

I, too, know what it’s like to feel like you’re running on empty.

I hit that place in life about 7 years ago and was able to learn some things while there and bounce back….with a fresh perspective and momentum. Whether you are in full-fledged burnout, attempting to deal with stress in your life, or just desiring enough energy to get through your day, I want to offer you what helped me get back my fire, fervor and fuel. And this will prayerfully keep you from returning to a stage of burnout as well.
