With so much going on in the world at the moment, I often find myself overcome by the feeling of drowning. It’s like no matter what I do, I just can’t keep up. There is always something to do, and as soon as you finish one thing, there is something else. It’s a vicious cycle with no apparent end.
It doesn’t help that these days there are so many options to choose from either; it’s almost as if the reason we find ourselves drowning is because of the sheer amount of choices we have.
This combination of stress and choice often leaves you depressed and anxious. I’m actually convinced that this is the very reason that so many people find themselves with chronic anxiety in the first place.
But maybe another reason we all have this “stress” is because we feel that in order to be successful and find true happiness, we need to have lots of money, and be seen wearing the latest clothing. Now I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with wanting those things, what I am saying is that often the stress of achieving these things ends up leaving us worse off.
But what is the alternative, or is this just how life is?
I came across this video, and I think it might help put things in perspective.
This video made me realize that as much as the world has to offer, ultimately Jesus is the one in control. He is the one who gave us life, so surely he will look after us. So next time you find yourself overwhelmed, know that Jesus is with you, and that you are not alone.
If you are struggling with anxiety, or are struggling with feeling overwhelmed, or perhaps you would just like to know more about Jesus. Send us a message, we would love to hear from you.
