"People That Love Jesus Don't Get Overwhelmed!"

Mar 26, 2019

That sentence isn’t just a lie I believed - but something I actually used to say.

Being overwhelmed, wrestling with anxiety - those were things people who had no faith wrestled with, and if they would just pray, read their Bible more and get the unconfessed sin out of their lives - they would get better.  

Then I had my first panic attack…

…followed by a dark season of depression.  

Honestly, I thought I was a spiritual failure, that I was the one who didn’t have enough faith and I had to have been a HUGE disappointment to God.  

But then one day I was reading through the Gospel of Matthew where Jesus is in the Garden of Gethsemane - and in Matthew 26:36-38 the Bible says…

36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled.38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”


Jesus (fully God, fully man) was “overwhelmed.”  

How could that be explained; after all, could I tell Jesus that He needed to be…more like Jesus?  

I say all of this to hopefully encourage those who may be dealing with anxiety and/or depression…

…so you will know that Jesus is not mad or disappointed in you…but actually understands you, will meet you exactly where you are and walk with you through whatever is going on.  

If you are wrestling the anxiety - or dealing with depression and want to begin a journey towards healing, then my newest book is for you and I take you on a 30 day journey towards overcoming what has overwhelmed you for far too long.  

As I always say when talking about the book - I want to warn you - it’s very real, and very raw (I self published it so my voice would not be silenced.)  However, I can honestly say it was written from a place of transparency and vulnerability as it’s my desire to help as many people as possible who wrestle with this.
