I have to say that running around with work, classes, and taking care of a lot of ill family members is a little overwhelming. I am exhausted taking care of my own schedule and projects, let alone everyone else's too.
It hit me while listening to the radio. "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury came on and one of the lines is: "oh the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God. It chases me down flights until I'm found; leaves the ninety-nine."
How am I looking at the overwhelming situation? Do I see it as exhausting and running around like a chicken with its head cut off OR do I see it with eyes of caring love? It was an opportunity for me to act for others. It definitely challenges and stretches me, but God has given me this opportunity. I need to detach myself from my own wants and desires, so that I can serve God through my family, co-workers, and loved ones.
It is a call to serve with a pure heart, to detach from myself, and to cling to my Anchor.
