I have often been told and taught that when you are overwhelmed and distressed you have to give out of your need. In other words, sacrifice. And giving is not necessarily speaking of money. It could be a sacrifice of time, praise, abstaining from eating your favorite food, or even disconnection from that cell phone and computer for a moment. And direct all of your attention on God and his graciousness. When we are weighted down it is He who makes our burdens light…

God, You uphold my life. I am in pain and distress – protect me and bring Your deliverance. I praise Your name in song and exalt You now with thanksgiving. May everyone who seeks You be revived in their hearts. May they rejoice in Your actions on our behalf. I thank You for listening to our needs and not ignoring the things that hold me down. I thank You for bringing a time of favor. I thank You that You will answer me and rescue me. In your Son’s name. Amen.

The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’ (Numbers 6:24-26)
