i am so done
im wearing myself out
i just want to live life
and stop trying to figure it all out.
i want to stop straining to listen and just hear
im sick of these battles in my mind 
I just want to enjoy life and not get stressed out over stupid things
i have got to learn what it means to rest
not physical rest necessarily, but how to rest my mind.

sometimes i wish i was normal, 
but thats only for a split second 
because in reality i would never want to be like everyone else. 
honestly, i get sick of always trying to be "in tune"
why cant i just live there instead of having to try and analyze or discern everything?

Today is a much better day
I am not forcing myself into situations and I'm just resting in the presence of the Lord.
Sometimes its good to just relax....
Im learning what it means to rest.
Everything is so much better when I take the much needed time to just stop. 
Sometimes when I am trying so hard to listen, I lose sight of what He is really saying and doing.
So today, I've chosen to rest. 
I'm not trying to understand it all and get some place new. 
Sure theres a lot going on and a lot coming up, but in order to get where I need to be when I need to be there, I am taking time to simply 
Today has been glorious. 

this whole rest thing,
you should try it sometime....

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6
