Hello,

You may have seen in the news this week that the web giant Amazon fended off one of the largest cyber attacks in History. The attack in question was a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack and it works by flooding a website with a huge number of requests so that the system becomes overloaded and ceases to function.

As I was reading this story, I was struck that sometimes all the news and social media we are exposed to can have a similar affect on us. Life can seem like a continual bombardment of conflicting information that can leave us confused, anxious and even paralysed with self-doubt.

When you are experiencing your own DDoS attack, perhaps you will find comfort, as I do, in these words taken from the Bible: “God is good, a hiding place in tough times. He recognizes and welcomes anyone looking for help” (Nahum 1:7, MSG).

If your digital life has left you feeling overwhelmed, perhaps it is time to turn to God.

Best regards,
Gavin
