One of my biggest battles is feeling like I have to prove my point. Especially when I’ve been been pushed into fight/flight mode. All the while I’m falling into desperately being stuck in this cycle, I appear to be the Nut. I’m not. I know this. But as an outsider, not knowing everything, you would think otherwise.
I came across this saying on Pinterest, and this, in those moments, when I’m able to remember empowers me to let my brain breathe. To step back and realize I’ve given the enemy control. And to have the chance to forgive myself while I attempt composure. To remember to lay it at the alter. God can do more with it as long as I be quiet and listen.
