I have been playing somethings over and over in my mind.  Last night I had the song "Beyond Me" stuck in my head.  I finally listned to the lyricks my brain was singing.
"Beyond Me"
Call it a reason to retreat
I got some dreams that are bigger than me
I might be outmatched, outsized, the underdog in the fight of my life
Is it so crazy to believe

That You gave me the stars, put them out of my reach
Called me to waters a little too deep
Oh, I've never been so aware of my need
You keep on making me see
It's way beyond me
It's way beyond me
Yeah, it's out of my league
It's way beyond me
It's way beyond me
It's way beyond

Anything that I got the strength to do
In over my head keeps me countin' on You
I'm leaving the sweet spot, sure shot
Tradin' it all for the plans You got
Is it so crazy to believe

That You gave me the stars, put them out of my reach
Called me to waters a little too deep
Oh, I've never been so aware of my need
Yeah, you keep on making me see
It's way beyond me
It's way beyond me
Yeah, it's out of my league
It's way beyond me
It's way beyond me

You take me to the place where I know I need You
Straight to the depths that I can't handle on my own
And Lord I know, I know I need You
So take me to Your great
Take me to Your great unknown

It's way beyond me, w-way beyond me
It-it's way beyond me, w-w-way beyond me

Yeah, You gave me the stars, put them out of my reach
Called me to waters a little too deep
Oh, I've never been so aware of my need
Yeah, you keep on making me see
It's way beyond me (it's way beyond me)
It's way beyond me (it's way beyond me)
Yeah, it's out of my league (it's way beyond me)
It's way beyond me (it's way beyond me)
It's way beyond me (it's way beyond me)
It's way beyond me

You take me to the place where I know I need You
Straight to the depths that I can't handle on my own (it's way beyond me)
You take me to the place where I know I need You
Oh take me to Your place
Take me to Your great unknown 
 
I felt like God was letting me know that somethings were out of my control and that was okay.  Then the church we visited this morning talked about worry and how sometimes its things we have no control over that we are worried about.  That's totally true and it is what I was doing.  I am so grateful that God spoke to me through this song and his word this morning.

For breakfast I had 9oz grape juice, coffee and some orange juice.  We went to a new church, they have a truly wonderful children's program, we are so excited. I came home and took care of the animals.  I had some grape juice and V8.  I really have not had any symptoms at all to report.  Last night I had some insomnia.  But other than that, this time has been so much easier than the first time.  Other than the first day, I did think about giving up.  I asked my husband "should I really do this?"  You miss out on date night dinners and things like that.  But its only for a month, and to me the benefit, spiritually, is so worth it.

I am going to pack up some drinks for my moms house, we have an afternoon of swimming, naps and family fun.  School tomorrow and on to day 4!



Readings:
Judges 11-15
1 Corinthians 11 & 12
