I feel so burdened and stresses right now. It seems there are just so many things on my plate right now that they are just spilling over. I am struggling with dealing with one at a time. If I could just let go and let God all my struggles would just disappear, but being a control freak I am not so good at it. I am a testament of proof that it works, so I am not sure why I just can’t do it. How do you cope with adversity? Any suggestions?

    I think it is truly impossible for us to completely let go and let God.

    Matthew 11:29-30
    29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

    A yoke is a wooden tool that connects to animals together to do the work together and make it easier. I don’t think Jesus wants us to let go of everything but rather to be yoked with Him so He can help us carry our burdens. When we do, He lightens our load.
    Spending some time in prayer is always helpful to me when I am feeling overwhelmed because He sends His peace in the midst of circumstances that are anything but peaceful.

      I find myself having trouble in prayer with being silent in my thoughts so that I may have clarity, and peacefulness of the Lord.

    Coping through adversity is easier said than done. However, I’ve found a few things to help. Stay in the word, even if it’s just 10 minutes a day…read a proverb, read a psalm. Are you in touch with what brings you joy? Even if it is something in the past, do it, every day….just something small. The feelings may not follow…I have to retrain my brain. For me, it is taking pictures and sharing them with others. I also need alone time…I take hot baths, sometimes every single night. Sometimes I read a book and other times I just soak in the hot water. I’m not sure what your situation is, but it sounds very stressful…I pray you find some joy and peace in the coming days. Hugs.
