DISCLAIMER: I am a Christian and this post is mainly to other believers... however, no matter what your beliefs are I hope you can take something away from my post.

I was a dancer, as I've mentioned before, and the one thing that has been so helpful is to still MOVE. So I put on my good worship music, sway back and forth, and tell the Lord how I feel that day. This is amazing because one I am moving gently, I am listening to music that makes me relax or happy, and I am vocalizing things that we all have a tendency to suppress. No matter how hard the pain, we can go to our heavenly Father and find rest for our SOULS.

Here are the lyrics but I believe hearing it is BEST!

Come all you weary with your heavy loads
Lay down your burdens find rest for your souls
Cause my yoke is easy and my burden is kind
I’ll take yours upon me and you can take mine

Come all you weary move through the earth
You've been spurned at fine restaurants and kicked out of church
Got a couple of loaves sit down at my feet
Lend me your ears and break bread with me

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Come all you weary, you crippled you lame
I’ll help you along you can lay down your canes
We’ve got a long way to go but we’ll travel as friends
The lights growing bright further on further in

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Rest for your souls

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Rest for your souls [x3]

The lyrics are beautiful. I can just feel the relaxation you must get. It reminds me of when I was still in church. (It has been a few years) I would sing along with the congregation and feel all my worries leave.  I left every time to go home feeling lighter and closer to God.

 Thanks for reminding me that we can give every thing over to him and he will take care of us. I sometimes forget that when I am in pain or just so tired.

Hugs!!   Margie

This is really nice :) It reminds me of the old country church we used to go to in a town with a population of 3 in Cox, Missouri. . . Have not thought about that in awhile :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace and Comfort!!!

Thanks for the reminder.  I sometimes forget that while there may not be rest for my body, there is always rest for my soul.

A very soothing contribution. Actually, the dancing bit, most mornings I take the dogs out at first light. I throw balls for the little dog, who loves to catch them, then bury them in the snow, then find them again. he's really quite a character. Did I mention that sometime between the time we moved here and two weeks ago, our nearest neighbor to the north, came rolling up to the door with an armful of balls. Beside him on the seat was a beautiful Silver Grey Scottish Terrier. He said, "your little dog has been delivering a ball a day to our back door stoop."  He apparently runs along the shore, leaves a tennis ball for their dog, and runs back home, same way, along shoreline. His way of making friends.

Anyway, the dancing part. When i go out early in the AM, I put the radio on whilst I throw balls and I dance. I sway ever so gently to the music. One thing I've learned about dancing is you can't think about doing it, you just have to let the music take you along. When the "stinker/thinker gets involved it breaks the spell and I just feel silly. I find this gentle swaying you describe helps quiet the pain and consternation. Thank-you

Thanks lilMissSunshine for this post.  I too am a believer and my dh is a preacher in a little country church.  Our average congregation is about 35 to 40 and we're all one happy family.
 
If it wasn't for having the master upstairs to believe in I don't know how I would make it day to day.
 
I have never tried swaying to the music but I do play gospel piano and I really get to feeling the music sometime.
 
God Bless!

The thinking recedes and the feelings take over. Somehow swaying to the music quiets the forum in my head.
