Overwhelm does not feel nice. In fact, it feels like a fierce assault on your senses that can leave you spinning, not knowing which way to turn.
In those moments when a million messages are flooding your brain, and a googol of voices are pulling you in every direction, remember this one choice fact.
The only step you need to take is the next one.
Take a breath.
That’s why the Scriptures teach us that even though it’s healthy and right to plan our way, consider our options, and built toward an envisioned end, God directs our steps.
“A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.” (Proverbs 16:9 AMP)
The Lord directs our steps and makes them sure.
When you are groping for some certainty, the question to ask is simply, “What’s my next step?”
Not steps, not leaps, not milestones or missions.
Then open your heart to hear, not hustle.
