When you find yourself getting overwhelmed by all the needs around you, give yourself permission to stop right where you are.
Take a deep breath. All of this doesn’t depend on you. It just seems that way whenever we take the burdens off Jesus’ shoulders and put them on ourselves.
As soon as you look away from Jesus to stare at the unending needs and expectations, it’s like falling into a black hole. Your love and strength deplete until you become resentful of your own life.
