our help when we are overwhelmed (Psalm 142, part 3)

Abounding Grace

Psalm 142

When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk they have secretly set a snare for me.” (Psalm 142:3)

Beloved, we have been here before, these waves of sorrow and sadness, weariness and hurt washing over us and leaving us feeling overwhelmed. We have walked through this familiar land before, and we will walk through it yet again.

Please know this, dear one: when you feel overwhelmed and alone. When you feel like you are crushing under this wave of hurt and that ache of your broken heart. When you feel like giving up and letting go. When you feel like you are carrying the weight of sorrow heavier than this world, like these pieces of your fractured soul have been trampled on too many times.

He has not left you. He has never left you, beloved. He is right here.
