Matthew 4:23-24 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, those having seizures, and paralytic, and he healed them.
While today was fairly uneventful I am starting to feel anxiety about leaving, having the time to pack and prepare while still having the time to do all the things we still wanted to do. It is starting to feel as though there is too much to do and not enough time to do it all. I definitely am feeling overwhelmed and nervous about getting it all done. And again, my husband to the rescue. He reminds me that things will all work out, just as they have done in the past and that the things that we are meant to do will get done because He desires it. As usually, he does an amazing job of reminding me of this and helping me to bring my anxiety under control and curb the feeling of being overwhelmed.
Jeff’s reminder brings me to read my daily scripture passage and this is what I find. Jesus healing all those afflicted by various ailments and Jesus’ ability to do things that no one else can do. Reading this scripture settles my nerves and reminds me to take one step at a time and accomplish one thing at a time—I don’t get as overwhelmed that way. Additionally Jeff asked the kids for help. He explained how I was feeling and they all pitched in to help where help was needed. My family rallied around me and lifted me up when I needed it the most. This enabled me get myself grounded again with our calling and get my heart and head in the right place—faith and trust in God’s plan, not mine.
