The best remedy I can possibly recommend for feeling overwhelmed is reading God’s Word. So I know this is a simple post, but a beeline of verses that hit the heart of the matter are just what the doctor ordered.
From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk They have secretly set a snare for me. Psalm 142:3

But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. John 14:1
There is none holy like the LORD: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. For there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God. I Samuel 2:2
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:7

The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way;Psalm 37:23
