Waking thoughts…early morning’s drive.
Settle your mind.
Reacquaint with your soul.
My trainer friend answered, “It’s from use.”
I have a pain in my upper right arm that wakes me at night. It’s caused by the way I carry things, she says.
I think, yes. Right.
Life, questions, concerns, and the baby
Close to my chest like prized possessions.
She suggests I alternate arms, shift the weight to the other side. I can.
That’ll be easy, remembering the words I’d been thinking all day.
Cease striving, it’s not all up to you and
you’re not on your own.
Stop carrying so many things alone.
Lighten your load. Carry what is yours to carry, to treasure, to hold sweetly to your chest.
Put the rest on the shelf.
Don’t pick it back up.
Be still, and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10 ESV
Loosen up, live lightly. You’re strong but stubborn.
It’s not all up to you and you’re not alone.
Settle your mind. Reacquaint with your soul.
Rest will follow. It’s Gods promise.
Lay your hand softly on your chest.
