"Overwhelmed is good when something good overwhelms something bad!"
By Debra Susan Bowman
Overwhelmed is good when love overwhelms loneliness. Overwhelmed is good when blessed overwhelms stressed. Overwhelmed is good when rest overwhelms the test. Overwhelmed is good when action overwhelms passivity, when joy overcomes depression, when forgiveness overwhelms brokenness. Being overwhelmed is always good when it produces faith, energy, the hope, the love to move on, to push through. Take time out this week to sit before God, to contemplate Him and His awesome promises, to sense His presence. Think of something you need to overcome this week and ask God how He would like to overcome that. Then write it down, think on it, pray over it and say it until victory comes. It is always a good thing to be overwhelmed with God!
