I understand! Like you, I feel like so much of my time is spent treading water, and I don't have enough energy left to swim to shore. I have been working at praying to God for what I need, talking to him about my hopes and fears and asking him to guide me in my life. Sometimes praying something like, "God, I know I am not where I need to be, but I have no idea how to get to You............so please show me the way. Open my heart to Your will and pour Your love and grace onto my life." is a wonderful way to start!
I have also found that listening to Christian music is also very soothing and is a great tool to keep my eyes on Him through the day. I like the contemporary Christian music........and we have a great station where I live. I bet you have one where you are, too! Trust in Him...........take baby steps if you need to because God will meet you where you are.
