When an expected win turns into an unexpected loss sport teams can be OVERWHELMED by the outcome. That is until a wise coach takes that loss and makes adjustments laced with abundant encouragement. As sportmoms we add our encouragement when our down-hearted athlete comes home from one of these episodes.
Circumstances of life can certainly overwhelm us as David expressed in this Psalm...
Please listen and answer me, for I am overwhelmed by my troubles. Psalm 55:2 NLT
Note that in the scripture passage above David was calling out to God yet again after he had penned the grateful words in this prior Psalm...
I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. Psalm 30:1&2 NIV
Like David, one thing we can be sure of is that being OVERWHELMED is part of the ebb and flow of life. Another is that our loving God is there to bring us through each time we call out to Him.
“ ...what feels overwhelming today will one day be part of a greater story of His healing love.” Monica Brand
OVERWHELMED? CALL OUT TO GOD... & WATCH FOR THE GREATER STORY!
