There are many, many times in my life when I feel stressed, overwhelmed and not-good-enough. Those negative feelings and emotions drain me and leave me feeling hopeless and tired. As a mother and wife, I need and want to be at my best. When I am drained the relationship with my family changes- I yell when I should be patient, or act negatively when I should be the example of Jesus to my family. These bible verses below have helped change my perspective when I feel overwhelmed and fearful of the future.
These verses give me comfort and remind me that God is the one in control. He will guide you, watch over you and never leave you. If you are feeling frazzled and stressed take a moment to pray and reflect on some of these verses today.
