You often don’t even realize how loud they are—that is, until you turn them down.
Even those that aren’t inherently bad but they’re just…a lot…crowding space in your mind that’s desperately seeking the pathway to peace.
And when the air clears a little and you can hear the wheels inside of you begin to slow down, you realize that what didn’t feel “so bad” was cluttering the rooms inside of you and leading to your overwhelm.

What helps you align with the Word?
Who edifies your spirit to keep going forward?
What improves your focus + removes distractions?
Whatever rhythms you need to implement or release to fixate on what’s yours today, commit to them.

When you increase your ability to hear Him, you will notice that peace floods your soul. It is the giving of margin alone that provides new strength, knowing that you are posturing yourself in the direction of what is healthy, helpful, and holy for your day.
Being ruthless about the unimportant is the most loving thing you can do for the important 🤍
