Have you ever felt overwhelmed, not knowing what to do or who to turn to?

I left the house to run errands and I had a lot on my mind.  I was really struggling with anxiousness.  There were so many things happening and I was completely overwhelmed.

My husband and I weren’t on the best of terms and I was being impatient with the kids.  It was one obstacle after the next.

Dreadfully as I pulled back into our community I could hear…”look up.”

I looked up and to my amazement it was the most beautiful sky I had seen in a while.  You know, when you’re going through something your head has a tendency to feel like the the weight of 100 pound dumbbell.

As my eyes looked toward the sky the Holy Spirit filled my heart with these words: Look to the hills from whence comes your help, your help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth (Psalm 121:1-2).

In that moment, my entire countenance changed.  Anxiousness and impatience were replaced with the perfect peace of God.

Each week I link up on FiveMinuteFriday for a one word prompt, the prompt for this week is: moment.  If you would like to learn more about the link up, click here.

Have a great weekend!



  1. I have had these moments…I know exactly what you mean. There have been some challenging mornings when I looked up and saw full rainbows. I have calmly thanked God and the stress lifted like nothing…
