When Your Heart Is Overwhelmed

“Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for You have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. Let me dwell in Your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of Your wings!” -Psalm 61:1-4

I don’t know about you guys, but midterms are coming up, and my heart, at least, is overwhelmed. How am I gonna fit everything in? I honestly have no idea. In fact, should I be doing homework and studying right now instead of blogging? Arguably yes (and you maybe should too, but I won’t judge).

I actually started this post about a week ago, and all I got down was the verse set. As I was thinking of different ways I could avoid my homework and still be somewhat productive, I remembered this post and decided to come back to it. And let me tell you, I was floored. I love these verses, and I needed them so much more today than I did a week ago. My heart is overwhelmed, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Why not? Because there is a Rock higher than I, a Refuge for me when life goes a little sideways and I can’t stand on my own.

Friends, if your heart is overwhelmed, run to the One Who made you. He loves you, and He’ll shelter you, if only you’ll let Him.
