But here's the biggest dilemma of all: by the time it's all circled round and round in my brain, after I've cried about it, ached a little more, tried to understand it and process it on my own, asserted my own self back on track "Whew whew, I can do this, it's all good", only to kinda fall apart again, getting frustrated at the smallest thing... I've worn myself out and the thought of going through it all again in prayer sounds exhausting.
I was listening to iTunes and the song Breathe by Michelle Branch just came on. Kinda fitting, eh? I usually tend to round these posts out by saying "So here's what we can do, let's pray first!" or some easy obvious answer. But I think it's ok if we don't always have the answer right in front of us... although yes, this one is quite obvious, but what do we do with the natural tendency to always want to fix it on our own. There's more to say here, for sure, but I'll come back to it later:) It's a beautiful day today and I'm going outside with my dog to breeeeeeathe!
And... as always, God is so good and so full of LOVE and GRACE.
