Overwhelmed seems to be a word in my vocabulary a lot.
School work is so much, everyday is non-stop, Always a list of things to do.
Something I’ve noticed throughout this year that one of my themes seem to be lacking a balance.Somehow I always fall into the ‘not good enough’ lie.
I’ll watch an inspiring video and then compare my words to theirs. I get caught up in the lie that everyone’s life is better than mine, they have so many friends & get to travel all the time, they have so many followers and the list goes on.
But I don’t think to stop and thank Jesus for my many blessings. The fact that I have a stable loving family, can go therapy and I am able to be homeschooled.
So one minute I’m so thankful and the next minute I have gone down a complete comparison spiral, that definitely means a lack of balance.
I’m not sharing these struggles to have a pity party but to tell you that I’m human and these are very natural feelings because with the world we live in there is so many things being thrown at us.
The one who never changes and is our constant, is Jesus.
Thankfully he never leaves and gives grace upon grace. We don’t need to be consumed by things of this world because God’s love is bigger and more powerful.
The reminder is through all the ups and downs to get striving to choose Jesus. It’s a daily decision.
We need to remind ourselves of the little things that make us smile and be thankful.
We can only find balance when we choose the right foundation-Jesus.
