There’s too much to hold
And yet, I’m held.
I need to be nurtured
And yet, I long to nurture.
I desire love
And yet, I have so much love to give.
I wish for a partner
And yet, I revel in the solitude.
I hold tightly in my grip
And yet, I let go and let God.
I want to be cared for
And yet, I care too much about.
I hold fast to my boundaries
And yet, I ache in loneliness.
I risk it all to grow and be all I can be
And yet, my heart is filled with grief.
My heart cries in pain
And yet, my cup runneth over with mercy.
My anguish rouses me in the night
And yet, my lips sing praise and thanksgiving.
My spirit despairs
And yet, there is joy on my journey.
My rock has hit bottom
And yet, I rise on the cornerstone.
My fear screams louder than the pain
And yet, my mouth rejoices in truth.
My path seems unclear
And yet, my eyes see True North
My mind wanders
And yet, my focus is fixed on Thee.
My Dear Sister, you are not alone.
