my restless heart...

...restless heart... soul ADD... unsettled spirit...


I don't care how you say it... I only know that this is how my heart feels...  

Restless.  
Unsettled.  
Edgy.  
Uneasy.
Anxious.


I've known I've been struggling with this for a couple of weeks....I didn't know how badly this was affecting me until I just realized I have spent the greater part of this morning searching for something to bring a bit of peace to the tumultuous waters of my heart. 


There is a prescription for a restless, unsettled, edgy, uneasy, anxious heart.


It's not M&Ms or time on the internet...

It's not a walk around the block or a few extra minutes of sleeping in...

It's not the kind words of a friend or the smile of a stranger...

I know where it is found and Who prescribes it...


Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, 
present your requests to God. 
And the peace of God
which transcends all understanding, 
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

...the cure for the restless heart.  

Why does it take me so long to go to the Great Physician for the prescription?

...because I don't always know how to put into words 
what my heart feels

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. 
We do not know what we ought to pray for, 
but the Spirit himself intercedes for us 
with groans that words cannot express.
Romans 8:26

...no words needed...

  1. I think things happen for a reason...I think there is a reason that we have met through blogging. This is exactly what I needed today.
