When you are in a bad relationship you break up. You end it. If you have a relationship with fear and worry, it’s time to break up. Stop it. Dismiss it. End it. Let go of fear. Fear kills faith. Worry takes up too much space and effort in your life. You may be thinking, “Well, you must not worry or fear anything.” My response is “Au contraire.” My entire life has been full of both. I learned from the masters, my mother and aunts. They have perfected it. I have seen them invent things to worry about. If you are just beginning to fear and worry, then break the habit NOW. If, like me, it’s been a lifelong pursuit, then start breaking up NOW. Realize how much of it never happens. Give it to God. He can handle it and then let it go. If you don’t believe me, just give it a week. See if you don’t feel better and have more peace and rest.

Do we ever totally debrief though? It swims in my head, sprit and heart consciously and unconsciously. It rattles in my soul till I feel like I will explode. It hangs on my flesh like dead skin. It clings to my space till I can hardly breathe. It drips from my mouth like sickness. It crushes me on all sides till I disappear.
What is “it” you ask?
IT is all that and so much more!
Lord, in your mercy, I struggle but feel your embrace. I cringe but know your love. I gasp but breathe in your peace. I cry and feel a release of doubt but know my faith will continue to grow and see me through to the end. I look to the sky and find the stars. I look to the earth and feel the smooth sweet grass. I am thankful for your unfailing presence. Please never allow me to leave you. Amen.

Can I still dream of things I’d like to do?
Can I still imagine wonderful things?
Can I still hope for perfect days?
Can I still pretend everything is awesome?
Can I still believe in happily ever after?
Can I still expect a good life?
Can I still hope for artistic goals to be achieved?
Can I still be happy?
Can I still strengthen myself in body, mind and spirit?
Can I still increase my faith?
Can I still have wishes fulfilled?
Can I still find calm and peace?
Can I still have prayers answered?
Can I still have reason to smile and laugh?
Can I still live my life?
Can I still enjoy and accept love?
Can I still be me?
With God’s grace, most definitely!
