Do you feel overwhelmed?

Do you feel overwhelmed?


Stress, anxiety and worry are something we all struggle with at some point in our lives. But what about when it gets to a point where you feel completely overwhelmed? Do you feel tired? Are you always too busy? Have you lost compassion for others? Are you struggling with finances? Has life got you down? The reality is that life is tough.

We want you to know that your overwhelming circumstances will always be overwhelming, if you allow them to be. In fact, the things that have you worried or stressed right now will most likely not go away anytime soon. But here is the question you need to ask yourself:

Are you willing to settle for being overwhelmed by circumstances forever, or do you want to step up and overcome whatever is robbing you of joy and life?

We are starting a new series this Sunday at Cornerstone to learn what the Bible teaches us about overcoming discouragement, anxiety, and worry. In our discussions with attenders and leaders at Cornerstone, this has been one of the biggest struggles that we currently face. We believe that the Bible gives us practical instruction and hope.  Remember what Jesus said.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. – John 10:10 ESV

In this study we want to give you resources that you can use to study along and learn more. Here are a few books we recommend.
