I’ve literally got the blues. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I posted a rather personal blurb on how I’m feeling these days. I don’t get enough sleep (5 hours), I’m juggling 2 full time jobs plus various side jobs, and I feel like my personal and social life is falling apart. Forget about R&R, personal time and quality time with my husband. I feel bad for him because he’s the first one I take my frustrations out on. Sometimes I feel like running away and hiding in a hole for a few days so I can just breathe.
At the end of the day I know this all stems from something deeper. My personal relationship with Christ. I haven’t been spending quality time with Him. How can my life be manageable and how can I be happy if my soul isn’t satisfied? I’ve been worrying a lot about my future (career, having a family, blogging, singing etc.) these days. But what good does worry do? Matthew 6:27 says, “And who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Worry actually paralyzes your mind and body and keeps you from productive. I hope you can learn to trust the God who loves and cares for you unconditionally.
Trust in the Lord and He will be faithful to open the doors and give you what you need. I’ve been so encouraged by this verse that I wanted to share it with you.
“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9
I feel trapped in a cage that I put myself in. The only thing that will set me free is Jesus.
