More than pause

Ever feel like you’re spinning even when you’re standing still? 

I sat down on my couch and closed my eyes. I had finally reached the end of a long work day. My belly was full, my house was clean, and my forehead was cool. 

But my mind wasn’t. 

Prayer requests flashing red. 

Family issues buzzing like bumblebees. 

Unfocused purpose gliding sloppily around my heart. 

Names and cares of friends pounding on my memory. 

Unfulfilled desires tiptoe as they chant softly. 

Insecurities of every kind boom and clang intervallically.

Behind my shut eyelids is a merry-go-round, twirling at an unbelievable speed. 

It made me want to jump off. 

Shut the door. 

Click off the lights. 

Get away from this life for a bit. 

More than put my world on pause but put my world on 




In the multitude of my anxieties within me,Your comforts delight my soul.”
-Psalm 94:19
