Just Stop

Updated: Jul 29, 2019

When you stop trying to be everything for everyone, the amazing you shines through!



When do you say enough is enough?

When do you seek the answers for the things that are tough?

Why do you run around like a chicken with its head cut off? Or put mortals on a pedestal when at your behavior, they scoff


Just stop trying to impress man with jumping at their every beckoning call

For at the end of the day, you are the one who, dead tired, will fall

Just stop trying to answer every question, whether addressed to you or not

It’s time to regroup, refocus, and of the excessive behavior, to just stop


Just stop and figure out the root cause of the deeds

Why do you have to be liked by everyone? Why do you have this need?

Just stop and figure out why you go completely out of your way

To do and be everything for everyone, thinking your name is the only one they can say


Just stop thinking you can answer every email with just the right response

Just stop rationalizing how you can complete five tasks all at once

Just stop creating lists that are never-ending and leave you feeling anxious for the next day

Just stop complaining about all the questions, but you don’t teach others or show them the

way


Just stop and identify where the source of the actions lies

Just stop and put the unhealthy behavior in the grave to die

Just stop and recognize that being a “Yes” person is not healthy for you

Just stop and realize what the stress, anxiety, and running around actually skews


Just stop and think about the lack of sleep, or the headaches from the stress

Just stop and contemplate about the mind racing in the middle of the night, causing unrest

Just stop and consider the lack of time to hit the gym or properly prepare balanced meals

Just stop and understand what all of these actions really reveal


Just stop trying to be Jesus, for there was only one and He needs not a clone

Just stop trying to be God, for only He can be everywhere and anywhere; only God alone

Just stop trying to lead the Holy Spirit, for the flesh has plans that God does not always approve

Just stop trying to be more than who you are, for God created an amazing, anointed, uniquely you


Just stop

No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. ~Eph 5:29 (NLT)


Have you cared for your body the way Christ cares for the church? Or have you cared for everybody except yourself?
