Today in church they talked about burdens and giving them to God. I have always been able to do this. Sometimes I struggled for a while before I gave in. I used to really struggle with racing thoughts at night - but I don't have that too much anymore since I started praying at night to calm my mind. Anyway...the pastor was saying at the end of service that we should give our burdens to God. He kept referring to financial and relationship issues - I just think that those are workable circumstances. They suck when you are in them - I know - but there are ways out of those issues. There is no way out of mine - I just have to deal with it. It was a very tough service for me.
It was a Christmas type service and families were singing Christmas carols and talking about their best Christmas memories at the beginning of the service. I just don't feel like I fit that. I'm certainly trying to trust that God has a plan for me - but it is hard. Most people's burdens seem so trivial to me now. I feel bad that I feel like that - but on a daily basis I bite my tongue from saying something to people that what they are complaining about it just really nothing to me.
I did have a busy weekend and despite this small setback - it was a pretty good weekend. I do have these awful fighting kids and I'm really starting to regret that I took time off for break. I might change my mind and go to work....they just won't stop fighting! It is physical too and it is just awful :(
We wrapped up this weekend by going to Climb Kalamazoo. It was our first experience and we had fun. We look forward to going again!
