the moth: caught behind the glass of the fireplace,
its wings frantically fluttering,
panicked, knowing there is no way out.
and i watch, knowing i can’t help him.
he runs along the glass, flying up
and he’ll most likely do that
until he can’t
Sometimes I’m that moth.
I do the same thing over and over and get nowhere.
Then today, I found a quiet place.
I settled down and read my Bible.
I wrote in my journal and prayed.
I left my phone in my room and got away.
When I came out 2 hours had passed.
God has so much to say,
So much to give.
He is ever pursuing me and today I gave him time.
It makes the biggest difference.
It results in happiness & energy.
It fills me with love,
And now I’m overflowing.
Now I can say bring it on.
This won’t be easy, it never is.
But if God is on my side
Who can ever be against me?
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
