I'm tired of the religion in me trying to do good and be good all the time. I'm tired of the worry in me; afraid of bad things happening or the unknown. I'm tired of the perfectionism in me, pretending I never make mistakes or feeling like a failure when I do. I'm tired of the fear in me, scared God won't allow me to accomplish the dreams and desires of my heart, in ministry for Him. I'm tired of the judgement I feel, when I see people act a fool. I'm tired of the pride in me, when I know I'm right and someone else is wrong. I'm tired of the stress I agonizingly experience and the physical pain I get due to not trusting God.
My soul longs for peace that surpasses all understanding. My spirit craves the presence of the Lord who gives me joy unspeakable. My heart craves the love of Jesus that protects and soothes my soul. My mind is desperate for renewing and the decluttering of worldly thoughts. My body needs rest that comes with a steady dance in the spirit of the Lord. My whole being wants nothing more than to STOP trying in my own strength, fighting for things not meant to be, feeling discontent, owning unrealistic expectations and wondering day after day if I'm becoming and accomplishing all God wants me to be!
So I will wait upon the Lord; I will pray with faith; I will walk in His strength; I will draw close to Him; I will believe that with God all things are possible and I will learn to trust Jesus more each day. I will worship the Lord with all that is within me; I will walk and live with my head held high, my eyes fixed on Jesus and speaking the word of God over my life. I will surrender my plans, will, thoughts, family, life and my all to Jesus. I will accept that I can do nothing apart from Him and that although some days I may "feel" a mess; I am a perfect mess in my Saviors eyes and He loves me and accepts me just as I am!"
