Sometimes our to-do list seems to be never-ending and can cause us to become overwhelmed. We may feel pulled in several different directions. Life can get crazy even for those who seem to have it all together and can multitask. We all tend to get discouraged when things aren’t getting done and everyday you are adding more to your list. So what do we do? Do we throw our hands up and quit and let the stress totally consume us?
The best thing to do is to look to God! Instead of focusing on the problem or our list that may be a mile long, let’s focus on God. Have you ever thought about the fact that it is impossible to be discouraged and focus on God at the same time. God is always there to comfort us and carry our burdens.
Here are several verses to focus on if you are feeling this way.
