of what you think you have learned;
where you think you are headed;
who you have been trying to be.
Sometimes you just have to stop...
stop trying so hard;
stop juggling too many things;
stop relying on the same efforts that have failed to bear fruit.
Sometimes you have to be still...
All the while trusting that when you do, the things that matter most will still be there when you have the strength to try again.
That strength won't be found in trying harder.
It won't be found in doing more.
It doesn't come from within.
It comes from above.
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. - Colossians 3:1-2
