Always Sometimes Never

I always put lotion on
I always get car sick
I always stay longer than expected
I always wear chapstick
I always prefer sandals

I sometimes wear my hair up
I sometimes like to draw
I sometimes get overwhelmed
I sometimes cry over animals and people 
I sometimes dream of moving away from the wind and dirt

I never finish a whole soda
I never wear high heels
I never like sea food
I never like to be cold
I never like cats or kittens

We do not belong to this world

Lately I have been feeling very down, and sad. I am constantly worrying about everything. My to-do list never seems to go away and I recently saw a post that said ” don’t let your to do list become an idol”

I never thought of it as an idol, but that post was right. My to do list had become an idol. Between trying to keep my shop going and wedding plans, my to do list piled up daily and I never made time for anything else. The other night Isaac asked something about being free. The truth is, I haven’t felt free in a very long time. I worry too much.

It seems like the older I get the worse everything seems to be. I have been listening to the bad things happening throughout the world and it hurts my heart. I can’t even seem to be happy during the day because my heart is just broken for everyone. Somedays I feel like May, from The Secret Life of bees.

 

Today I read  “In order to keep us from becoming too attached to this world, God allows us to feel a certain amount of discontent. We were made for heaven”

 

After reading this, my heart was calm. I know I was made for something more than this life. I will be still. I will learn to be free and things will get better. God holds my heart and I know that I am okay.

Strangely Dim

I have recently been listening to a song called “Strangely Dim” and every time it completely calms me. The lyrics are perfect for how I feel in this season. I am so thankful that God gave us music and wonderful artists. If you haven’t heard this song, I strongly urge you to! I listen to it via Grooveshark 

 

 

“Strangely Dim”

I’ve had all these plans piled up sky high
A thousand dreams on hold
And I don’t know why,
I got a front row seat
To the longest wait
And I just can’t see
Past the things I pray
Today

But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face
And don’t look around
Any place I’m in
Grows strangely dim

Sometimes where I stand
On this narrow road
Is in a raging storm
Or a valley low
But oh

When I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face
And don’t look around
Any place I’m in
Grows strangely dim

I don’t know, I don’t know
What tomorrow may hold
But I know, but I know
That You’re holding it all
So no matter what may come

I’m gonna fix my eyes on all that You are
‘Til every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
Let all my worries fade
And fall to the ground
I’m gonna seek Your face
And not look around
Til the place I’m in
Grows strangely, strangely, strangely dim.
