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.
