The Balance Between Non chalancy and Overthinking

Welcome back to my blog 🙋

This is me officially clearing off the dust and cobwebs here. Happy International Women’s Day to every girl and woman out there and you reading this.

How have you all been? I’ve been pretty good though I’ve had one of the most stressful weeks of my life since school resumed and I’m not even complaining anymore because more are coming. Anyway, with how choked school has been since resumption from lockdown and strike, I was anxious about exams this semester especially when we were hearing rumors about postponement of the exams, but all of a sudden, we saw the timetable for exams.

The timetable came later than expected and it was a shock to everybody. I was trying my best not to panic that period and remain calm. There were times where I was anxious, but I tried my best to be calm and not worry or overthink.

I wrote my first paper today and this girl is full of excitement because it went better than expected. So much better. The lecturer’s were patient with us, the questions were relatively easy and the time was okay too.

People always say to not overthink, not panic and not worry but it’s not so easy, this is me speaking from experience. This is because I feel like if I’m not thinking about it and put a lot of thought in order to make what I’m thinking about as smooth as possible, then something is going to go wrong and it usually makes me feel like I’m being non chalant and laid back about the situation. It’s best to find a balance between being non chalant and overthinking.

The balance between being non chalant and overthinking is certainly the God Factor. He makes everything easier and smoother. Jesus taught his disciples in Luke 12:22-31 not to worry and the verse which spoke to me there is verse 29.

Luke12:29(TPT) I repeat it: Don’t let worry enter your life. Live above the anxious cares about your personal needs.

This passage has made me an ex overthinker. I no longer worry like I used to. There are times when I have moments of overthinking, but I make deliberate efforts to stop. It’s certainly a gradual process and I’m sure that it’s only up from here.

I was so calm this morning that I didn’t have the normal anxiety symptoms I used to have. I’m now relaxed because I know Jesus has my back. I can now be laid back without having side thoughts about if something is going to go wrong.

Psalm 16:8 (TPT) I always remember that the Lord is with me, He is here, close by my side, so nothing can defeat me.

Jesus is the balance and any journey with Him is always smooth and easy.

Psalm 119:105 (TPT) Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions, the revelation of your word makes my path clear.
