Day 9: beautiful rest

Standard

One of my friends reminded me of my ability to overanalyze so much of my life. I’m a natural worry wart. I’ve suffered from anxiety and migraines since 10 and I’ve spent so much of my life trying NOT to stress. I shared a pretty important situation with her to get her perspective and she immediately said “You’re over thinking it”. It stopped me in my tracks and I couldn’t even disagree with her lol because she was right. I was doing waaaaaaay too much thinking instead of resting in God’s promises. So grateful for awesome friends like Renee <3.

What have you been worrying about? Why continue to stress? Yes having faith is easier said than done but God can take every thought, doubt, and concern and allow you rest.

So rest. Rest on the promises. One of my favorite verses comes from "Holy" by Eric Gordon. "You see me as I am, frail and broken but still in the palm of Your hand. Beyond the pieces, beyond my tears, I surrender myself and the way I feel . Surrender and allow God to make sense of every situation.

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you…Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act… (Psalms 37:4-7 NLT)

So glad He sees me as I am.
