Overwhelmed

I.

I am overwhelmed.

He.

He overwhelms me.

But I am loved, because He loves me.

March 4th-11th I got to spend time in South Bend, IN with Impact Campus Ministry. Before I left I thought maybe I could work with urban ministry and utilize my intercultural degree there, but God had something else to say to me. I also have a minor in Spiritual Formation and God wants me to use that now. It was overwhelming and spiritually it drained me from the beginning of the week and as the week progressed I became more and more overwhelmed by God. Then I saw what campus ministry was about and I was on my knees.

What was I to do? Well, I cried. A lot. But not as much as I prayed.

I.

I am overwhelmed.

He.

He overwhelms me.

But I am loved, because He loves me.

When I came back the 12th I was exhausted from the week and then had to work an 8 hours shift on Sunday. I felt like I was dragging my feet at work and I couldn’t get any energy. Maybe it’s from all the coffee the I consumed during the week previous and not having any that day. However, here I am. Sitting in a booth at Lincoln Christian University writing this blog. School and work are always going to be overwhelming to me, but the best kind of overwhelming is the overwhelming presence of God. It’s exhausting though. Especially if you’re around people. Get away and go to a quite place and let God fill you back up. Let Him overwhelm you, break you, pick you back up, mold you, shape you, and let Him be God.

Remember: Love God, love coffee, and love others.
