I believe that our overwhelm is mostly self inflicting yet sometimes we take our Christian faith for granted by using it as a crutch for the way our life is when we should be taking responsibility for our actions and consequences. When our lives are overwhelmed, do we take responsibility? No - we blame God or the enemy, but never ourselves. God is sovereign, yes. But God's sovereignty doesn't negate personal responsibility to choose to do our part. We each have free will. We each have free thoughts, and from those thoughts comes the ability to choose daily habits that form our lives. If we're not careful, those habits end up forming lives that are not pleasing to God, nor are they beneficial to us or anyone else for that matter.
