Are You Overwhelmed?

Did you ever get an invitation to do something and think “I am so overwhelmed right now, I can’t even think about that”? Jesus was constantly giving, constantly busy, always being followed and sought out by the crowd. I am an extrovert and that feels overwhelming to me! How did he do it?  As you look throughout the Gospels, you find verses like this:

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. (Mark 1:35 NIV)

Jesus had his alone time….and he spent it with his Father. He talked through the events of the day, through tomorrow and was always looking for what God wanted him to do next. Maybe the reason he was able to stay focused was because he wasn’t filling his days up with anything that other than God’s plan.
