Refreshing Day 3 ~ Permission to Just Be

We carry the weight of our family...pets too. The love we have for the people in our lives sometimes finds us in the "over caring" auto pilot. Somehow we think we're responsible for it all. Have to's, must's, should's swirl as prominent themes in our thoughts. 

Who told us this was how we're to live? 
When did we believe this as truth? 
When did we buy into wearing those hats? 
Did we see someone else wearing them and decide we needed to? 

I'm breathing in God's refreshing breezes of truth. 
Truth that I don't have to measure up. 
Truth that I don't have to busy myself to exhaustion. 
You don't have to either.

On this beautiful day...
I find permission to just be and I share it with you. 
Here's permission to only do what amazing you can do without wearing yourself thin.

Permission to be wonderful you in your own way. 

Refreshing breezes of truth ~

Jeremiah 31:25 - I'll refresh tired bodies; I'll refresh tired souls.

Proverbs 28:25 - A grasping man stirs up trouble, but trust in God brings a sense of well-being.

Colossians 2:2 & 3 - I want you woven into the tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. There you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ.

"Justing Being" is one of my favorite things! I love to live life trusting Him for each moment and breathing in the passing moments. But that's not my usual "first response". Thank you for giving me permission to enjoy this day by "just being". :)
