SWAMPED SUBMERGED ENGULFED BURIED FLOODED
INUNDATED VANQUISHED
CONQUERED

  1. Such a powerful post! I love the list of verses for those challenging times of feeling overwhelmed. Thank you for sharing them! I’ll be using them and passing them on! So glad we’re neighbors at TWW. Blessings!

  2. This was a perfect one for my daughter today~
    Blessings!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this post with us at Coffee and Conversation this morning. I have to tell you…the timing could not have been any more perfect! Among other things we’re in the process of buying a house and hitting snag after snag, and our church is in the process of losing a precious pastor and starting the quest for finding another. And to top it all off, this morning my husband & I were on our way out of state to take our 11 year old to see a cornea specialist about a mysterious ongoing issue with her eye. And then, there’s this perfectly-timed post reminding me of all I know to be true. Thank you.

  4. So timely for me! Thank you!

  5. Always encouraged when I come here. So delighted to have you as a part of our Three Word Wednesday community. Blessings. xoxo

  6. Amen. So thankful for this truth.

  7. Those are awesome. I think I’ll send them to a friend.

  8. Great reminders for those times when we’re struggling. I love the Psalms for that-David sure knew what it was to cry out to God. Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded-pinned to the links board!

  9. Such soul-food, Renee! Gave me God-bumps :-) Thanks for sharing these powerful truths over at #EverydayJesus.

    Blessings to you, my friend!

  10. Hi, Renee,

    Thank you for this very helpful post and also for your services to education. I studied literature for years but in a very secular environment (both high school and college). I’m so glad that the Word is now my foundational text! It anchors all the rest.

    Love that passage from Isaiah 46:4… God will keep on carrying us and saving us! Throughout this whole life! Amen.

    Your grateful neighbor from Still Saturday,

  15. Thanks for a very useful post, Renee. And I love Erwin Lutzer’s quote. Blessings to you!
