It's one of those nights...

...you know,
when my brain is on overdrive
and I start to wonder about what I'm doing
and what motivates me
and where truth stands in my life.

I hate that I struggle with caring 
what people think.

I worry and dwell and over-anyalze,
and next thing you know,
I'm all anxious and weird.

The reality is, it's my struggle.
And I deal with it daily.

But I heard something recently,
something that made me think.

"There are only two people
in this world
that you have to please:
your husband.


- Dixie Chandler (My pastor's wife)

I'm trying to figure out
what this looks like.
I'm trying to stop worrying
and working myself up

So, I'm reading this verse
and praying for God's help.

"Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, 
for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. 
Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

- Matthew 6:34 


  1. uh oh. Did you run out of your prescription for your crazy pills?! People see you as beautiful (inside and out), incredibly talented musically and artistically, and an amazing woman that serves the Lord with all her heart. Do not ever think anything else. Love you, i'll be praying for you!

  2. Don't worry, my friend. I have found that you can't please everyone because everyone is different. Be happy, love yourself, and keep praying. Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. Oh, I know exactly how you feel. But it's times like this when you learn exactly who you are. :) Have a great weekend!

  4. Ah I think we share a brain sometimes :) But I just want you to know that you are amazing and talented and awesome...even if with any little imperfections! And I love your pastor's wife's saying...that's great!

  5. @Drea- Thanks Dre :) lol! I appreciate the prayers :)

    @Red Rose Alley- That is very true! And Thank you!

    @ M.M.E.- I'm glad I'm not alone :) Thank you and here's to a good week! :D

    @Alissa- hehe! Agreed! Thank you so much, Alissa! And I love her saying too - it's such a beautiful, freeing, simple truth :)

  6. i can't believe i'm just reading this now!!! i love the quote about only having to please God and your husband. so good.

    praying for you. :)

  7. Thanks Suzy!
    I love that quote too! It's so freeing :)

    And I'm so glad you're able to move on - I can definitely relate to your recent posts...

  8. thanks. :) and i think a big thing i left out of my post that you nailed in yours is asking for God's help. it's not easy to just "get over" stuff, but i believe it's possible. and so, SO good. :)
