Flustered, frazzled, fearful

"When you feel flustered and frazzled on the outside, do not get upset with yourself. You are only human, and the swirl of events going on all around you will sometimes feel overwhelming" (from Jesus Calling- July 31st).

"Whenever you start to feel fearful or anxious, repeat this unconditional promise: 'Nothing can separate me from Your Love, Jesus'" (Jesus Calling- August 1st).

I don't know about the fearful part, but I've definitely been flustered and frazzled of late. The never ending pile of laundry, the growing grocery list, the friends that need a call or visit, etc. etc. There is always something that needs attention (I'm not even including the baby or the huz- they get their attention...I think...). It's the other stuff the I can't seem to stay on top of. So what gives? I'm not sure yet, but maybe tonight after Punk's in bed, I can mull it over while soaking in the bathtub...

  1. Wish I could add words of encouragement but unfortunately I don't think it gets better... I think you just have to realize sometimes you put more pressure on yourself to do stuff for others than those others ever expect of you. So give yourself a break!
