How to Calm Your Overwhelmed Heart
6 Strategies to ANCHOR Yourself in God’s Word
You've been blindsided
- by an unexpected conflict.
- by a sudden change.
- by an unpleasant conversation.
- by a surprise complication.
Or perhaps you're overloaded by everything that's been piling up on you:
- the out-of-the-blue bad news
- along with the on-going situation
- plus all the added family stress
- on top of so many prior commitments.
Regardless of the cause, the result is always the same: you get swept into the depths of the emotion ocean.
Where you feel completely overwhelmed by the external circumstances swirling around you and the turmoil within your own heart.
Maybe you scold yourself: I should be able to handle things better than this by now! (Which only makes you feel all the more overwhelmed.)
But just because you always react this way doesn't mean it's the only way.
Overwhelm is neither inevitable nor unavoidable.
You can learn a new way.
Imagine knowing how to intentionally...
... respond to challenges with Biblically-based strategies.
... train your brain to reach for Truth to quiet your heart.
... bypass overwhelm by ANCHORing yourself in God's word.
... rely on Jesus to be the Strength of your tender heart.
Overwhelm may be your natural reaction, but it's not your only option.
You can learn to quickly calm your overwhelmed heart!
I have spent SO many LONG years of being stuck in overwhelm! Thank you, Cheri, for getting me ... and focusing my attention on the God who truly gets me! — PW
I spent most of my life thinking something was very wrong with me.
Now that I know I'm an HSP — a Highly Sensitive Person, I realize God made me different ... not defective.
From my work with hundreds of other Christian women who are also HSPs, I know how easily we can become overstimulated and overwhelmed. I also see the many strengths we offer our families, friends, and the world around us because of our God-given sensitivities.
When you quit trying to be like everyone else, you enjoy new-found freedoms. And as you rely on Jesus to be the Strength of your tender heart, you find contentment, confidence, and unexpected joy.
I'm the founder of Sensitive and Strong: the place where the HSP Christian woman finds community.
With Amy Carroll, I'm the co-host of Grit 'n' Grace, the podcast for HSPs as well as reforming perfectionists and people-pleasers.
I'm a collaborator at heart, and I can't wait to brainstorm with you, give you personal feedback, and cheer you along the entire way!

"Thank you! I am learning for the first time in my life of 70 years about the truthfulness of the Highly Sensitive Person! Most of my life I felt my sensitivity was a negative part of my being, a result of me 'taking things too personally.' What joy, freedom, and affirmation I feel in who I truly am!" — HT
