Be still, child.
Why can't I get it right? When will I learn?
Shh. . .
I don't want to mess things up.
Where can you go from my Spirit? How can you flee my presence? Isn't my Spirit with you always? Do I not make everything work together for good? How can you "mess up?"
But I don't feel right about it. Isn't that a sign I did it wrong?
I'm still in the process of working on you. You aren't done yet.
I want to be so much more.
Are you saying I'm doing a bad job on you?
Well. . .no. . .
I don't make mistakes.
I didn't say that.
Then stop. Trust me. Be still. Stop thinking so hard. Be who you are. Trust me to make your words and actions powerful. Align yourself with me, be refreshed in my Spirit and your life will count for eternity.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
