Note to self:
Stop stressing. And biting your nails won't make them grow faster.
Remember this too shall pass, because it always does.
Lately, I've been feeling overwhelmed with a lot of aspects of life. You know that feeling where you just keep expecting things to go wrong, because everything else is. Like your mind is disconnected from your body and the latter is functioning as though it was in a state of normality when the prior is in one of chaos. Some may call it a front: putting a smile on your face when your soul isn't smiling. I call it coping.
So, that was me. Coping.
Until I realized that living and coping are two very different things and I needed to stop coping if I wanted to start living. See, I tend to trust God in the big areas of my life (ex: praying that an interview turns into an internship, hoping that I get the scholarship I applied for) but it's as though I completely forget that faith exists with the small things.
So, here I am this morning: having a cup of faith with my tea. Because "God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it."
