Yesterday was my second day back in LA, and I hit overwhelm…

You know when you are driving and you start crying and you don’t know why…

That feeling you get when you take a wrong turn and you are more frustrated than usual, that space where you just need to stop and sit for a while or you just might explode…

That was my yesterday.

The thought of moving over here, (with all the complexities of this city, a culture I don’t know, a community I’m not a part of, a surprisingly varied vocab and more roads to get lost on than hairs on my head…) sent my thoughts into melt down.

What am I thinking? I don’t have any money! I don’t have anywhere to live! I don’t have a visa yet! I don’t know anyone in Irvine, and this task seems impossible!

What should I do? What do I need to do? My thoughts were racing out of control…

And then I remembered the words of my Mother! (She stole them from the Bible)….

“Take every thought captive to Christ” 2 Corinthians 10:5

So… I pulled the car over, sat in a Chik-fil-A (yummo!!), had coffee, and read my Bible and my journal and reminded myself that Jesus did not entrust Himself to men, for He knew their hearts, He trusted God alone. John 2:24.

I may tell myself this is crazy and impossible, and others may (and have) say the same thing.

But I trust God, and that is what I need to do when I am overwhelmed… trust God.
