Be Still

What’s next? This can’t be it.

Can it?

I’m not happy

fulfilled

content.

There’s gotta be more. Better.

Maybe I need to be more. Better.

Maybe I need to do more…

Yes, that’s it. I just need to change a few things. Work a bit harder. Serve a bit more. Be a bit thinner. Dress a bit nicer.

Now I look the part. I’ve checked all the boxes. But still…

I don’t feel pretty

      lovely

      good enough.

There’s gotta be more. Better.

Maybe I need to be more. Better.

Maybe I need to try harder…

Yes, that’s it. I need to really commit to this group. This relationship. This job. This diet.

Now I’m really digging in. I’m becoming a better version of me. But am I?

I only feel tired

     overwhelmed

     stressed out.

Why isn’t this working? I’m trying so hard.

I can’t do this. I can’t.

Oh God!

Oh…God.

Oh, Father.

I…can’t.

Be still.

But there’s so much to do, God. So many boxes to check and milestones to achieve and improvements to be made.

Be still. The only thing you need is to be is still, my child.

But what about my work? I have to do better. I have to commit. I have to put in the hours or I’ll never move forward.

I will fight for you, you need only be still.

But what about finding Mr. Right? If I don’t put myself out there, if I don’t look my best I’ll never meet him.

Wait patiently on me. My timing is perfect.

But what about my dreams? How will I ever fulfill them if I don’t make the big move now?

I love you, my child and I have wonderful plans for you. They’re coming.

Be still and know that I am God.

Your striving has left you weary

   downcast

   heavy laden.

But remember my promises.

I will give you freedom

    peace

    rest.

All you need to do is let me in. Trust me.

But God…

You can’t do this alone.

I can’t do this alone.

So give it to me, my love, and just

  be still.
