Life is too much

storm moving through sky

This morning I woke up early but chose not to get out of bed. The fan’s consistent hum soothed me as my mind wandered over the past week… and then the coming week.

As I lay there, suddenly I was terrified by the sensation that life was too much for me. I couldn’t face it. I couldn’t overcome the obstacles in my course.

The panicky taste lingered as all of my challenges and problems heaped up in front of me and dared me to climb. I only wanted to run away. Until I remembered that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 Jn. 4:4).

  1. This feeling is so familiar to me. Here is a haiku I wrote once to express it:

    I am a small mouse
    crouching in the grass. Pink ears
    trembling, sky too large.
