What God Would Say to the Overwhelmed Woman

For such a time as this.

Before you were born I knew you, while you struggled to find out who you are, and even as you struggle still. I. Am. 

I am with you. I made you for such a time as this. 

When you feel overwhelmed I am in the midst of struggle. When you chase for the finish line I am in the moment of triumph. Even when you fall flat, I am there in the trenches. All you have to do is see me. 

You were made for such a time as this. 

For even when you fail, I can use it. And even when you fall short, I can pick up the slack. Each moment, each challenge, every triumph, every failure. These are simply moments for me to make myself more known by you. 

You were made for such a time as this. 

You are never alone. You are not forsaken. I have been with you from conception, and will be with you throughout eternity. So when you feel overwhelmed just know that I am there and together we can. 

Because I made you for such a time as this.
