And relax today. No need to read further but if you must; I’m not sure what was up with this past week but it sure seemed like everyone I talked to was nearly overwhelmed. A great way to deal with immense busyness is to take a break, step back and unwind. Sometimes a perspective change puts everything back in order.

God’s goodness and everything that goes in that, has been so overwhelmingly evident lately it’s almost beyond understanding. Walking through life with Him is the greatest adventure and please forgive my excitement but I can’t help but wish the same for you. He loves you so much.

As I’ve been praying about what to share with you today I find myself giddily (yes that’s really a word) overwhelmed by the goodness of our God. Not the kind of euphoria that comes from a false sense that everything is going perfectly, but completely excited by how marvelous He is even though much around us could definitely use improvement. I don’t know how to describe this feeling but I hope you feel it too.

My prayer for you is that you’re overwhelmed by God’s goodness today. No matter the circumstances of your life at the moment that you are able to see and appreciate how He has proven His perfect love for you. I pray for you to be reminded with glimpses from the past, an awareness of His closeness in the present and the peace of trusting Him with your future.

There are times when life can be completely overwhelming, we feel like we couldn’t do anything right if our life depended on it, we may be isolated, afraid and full of doubt and the last thing that comes to mind is being thankful. But that’s exactly what we need to do. Even if we can only find one thing to truly be grateful for, it can be the thing that opens the door to hope. With God there is always hope and through hope comes change. Change in our outlook and change in our circumstance.
