“Rest Easy” by Light of the Lost Boy
You don’t have to work so hard
You can rest easy
You don’t have to prove yourself
You’re already mine
You don’t have to hide your heart
I already love you
I hold it in mine
So you can rest easy
Where does my husband think I expect too much? I think back to 105 and his 430 a.m. departure. I still hear him call me a hypocrite. I still hear him say I expect too much when I say, “Stand”. This insinuates to him I think he is NOT a man. That’s super sexy and draws a man right in, right ladies!? Ugh!
So, He shows me (where I pummel my man). He shows me in very directly subtle ways. An oxymoron? Much of His ways seem to be so. His subtlety has direct impact when we are open to Him. Many here can attest to this exquisite pain of realization. Here was His kicker today: I am a HUGE fan of Jason Gray> I found that he has an area of the Rabbit Room blog where he posts. His wife, Laya, posts on occasion as well. She posted a beautiful article about a seemingly small incident that instead colored her life. She learned from it, in her child’s heart, that she wasn’t ever truly to ask for what she really wanted. She was to ask for what she thought she deserved. She works on untying this untruth and lays these lessons upon readers:
1.When you are attempting to change, you should have peace with yourself and go easy. (AHHH…Our Father’s yoke is easy)
2.When others are attempting to change, and in the process of change, we should have peace and go easy on them. (AHHHH…Again, Our Father’s yoke is forever easy)
My Father spoke. It was a soft blow between the eyes and an ever soft blowing breeze to my heart.
My Reality Kick Question: How long, how looooooong did my husband STAND while I tore at the walls of my mind with depression? A long time. A long time. And in much compassion and patience, too. Who am I to demand he snap to it? Who am I? BurningBeautiful Truth. Amen.
He is so good. He Is Good.
"When others are attempting to change, and in the process of change, we should have peace and go easy on them." Well, you know I needed that too. ;) Thank you for sharing.
This screams patience to me. So how long will you stand? How long will we all stand?
I have done some good research into the word recently......we were called....this is no easy task.....I feel a bit hesitant putting it out in public what I feel God requires of me in the word regarding my marraige and how long to stand because I dont want to scare anyone away.......but if you ask I definetly will tell you...what I have found......
Who am I.......beautiful words describing your humbleness.......
Remember in my journal about driving? You are at a place where he is not, and maybe was at one time.
But more importantly, you are on a journey with Christ. He is not. So Christ is working on him in ways you and I can never understand, focus on your journey so that God can use you as the testimony He needs you to be when He has you prepared.
