stop trying so hard

Sometimes you just need a song to kick you in the butt…

It’s a fear that keeps me wide awake
In the middle of the night
When the expectations are too great
And the bar gets raised too high
So I do the best with what I’ve got
And hope that no one knows
That I strain to see how high I can
Try to stand on these toes
Until I’m measured,
but You know better


So, thank-You, Jesus
Even when You see us just as we are
Fragile and frail and so far
From who we want to be
So, thank-You, Jesus
Even when the pieces are broken and small
Dreams shatter and scatter like the wind
Thank-You, even then

So I put aside the masquerade
And admit that I am not okay
Which may not be the thing to say
But I’m not ashamed to need You more each day

We raise the standard and try to reach You
But we’ll never make it, and we don’t need to

I am a control freak. And sometimes (ok…lots of times) I need to hear this. I need to hear that I don’t have to try so hard and that I’m fine just the way I am and that God is more than enough for me and I am enough for Him.
