This verse is from my Bible study today. This is a really tough one for me. The words "rest" and "quietness" are kinda foreign to me. My high level of anxiety really doesn't let me get to these two places very often. I have major problems sleeping. I sleep a few hours at night and catnap throughout the day when I need it. It seems to work for me, but I know it's not healthy. Quietness, ugh, I can't take it. I always have the fan going and some kind of music. When it's quiet I start to panic. I have no idea why I am this way but that's how it is. I can feel my skin start to crawl when that happens.
My mom and therapists have been trying to get me to do those relaxation exercises for years and they just stress me out, can't do them. I don't understand, but everytime I try or even think about it.... I'm getting all antsy and itchy right now.
Everyone says, "Just give it to God. Trust Him, He will take care of it." How do you do that? I wish I knew, because that would be great. I do not know how to do that, and I can't tell you how many people have said that to me. I try, but it always comes back in my head. All the stress and all the problems; are always right there sucking the life out of me.
