Breakthrough.

the feeling of being tangled

pushed around beneath a wave

hitting unexpected

sand scraping elbows and thighs

hitting bottom

again

pulled by force above, beneath and around

grasping for the surface

you are

done with the deep turbulence underneath

panic setting in

the strength of push and pull

keeping you from breakthrough

separated from sweet oxygen

oppression keeping you from the gentle surface

the light of day

being kissed by rays and gentle breezes

where things are clear. evident. safe.

your eyes look up and the light seems so far

so dim beneath the awful droning chaos

the cruel relentless cycle of the water.

the attacks of waves

the roaring presence of inevitable nature.

the crushing, isolating pull.

you open your mouth to scream

and water rushes in

silencing attempts.

muffling your cry for freedom.

Thinking about all the troubles and strife of life this morning and praying for emotional healing for so many hearts and souls… This poem is just a metaphor. Walking toward the light at the end of the tunnel is a process. Knowing that truth and good always win is a daily exercise in faith. I flipped through my daily quote calendar and today’s words are: “What’s true of biology is also true of faith: If it isn’t growing, it’s probably dead.” It’s an unattributed quote and very interesting… and holy moly, it’s tough to believe that it’s July already! Sometimes I think “summer” should be renamed “time warp.”

 

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you:

Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought,

but rather think of yourself with sober judgment,

in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

Romans 12:3
