We are going 100 miles a minute almost ALL the time…

Sometimes we just need a break. A time out. A rest.
Two things that help amidst chaos and overwhelm are prayer (aka letting go) and journaling.

When we decide we’re no longer going to shoulder the burden, God has been waiting all along for us to lay it at his feet. It can be hard to fully let go, and if we can’t see a way out or think of HOW God is going to help or solve our strife, we don’t trust it will happen, so we remain in the struggle.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God
so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all
your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:6-7
Secondly, journaling. Not just journaling when you’re so bottled up you might explode (which is a fine time to grab your pen and paper to save the oncoming onslaught) but to make journaling a daily release, daily habit, daily practice to get your emotions out of your head and into your consciousness. Amazing shifts, breakthroughs and beautiful awareness comes from writing out your life–day by day. Patterns emerge. Conversations get deep, frustrations get released, and honest talk with God happens.
 >> Final thought: If you’ve not yet developed a daily journaling practice, why not start today? Grab a pen and scrap paper–it doesn’t have to be fancy. Just start by reflecting on your day. See what comes out. Were there any challenges today that you need to dig into to learn, grow and let go of? Any unsettling feelings come that you should delve a little into the roots of? Simply writing them out will bring you more peace and clarity to help you give them over to God, not as a last resort, but as your “go-to” Redeemer.
