“Do not be afraid of tomorrow; for God is already there.”
Writing candidly about my depression has been a release for me. I am able to share, not only my successes, but the journey of recovery while I’m ‘in it’! In other words, the good, the bad and the darn ugly!
Yesterday, I had a long conversation with God in my journal. I told him all my worries, and finally asked God to take them! I can’t carry the burden alone.. I wont.. I refuse to feel crushed by the thoughts which run through my mind.
So in the end of our “conversation” God told me
“Let me take care of this Kim. Relax. Take a walk. Go forth.”
So.. go forth I went.. this was yesterday..
This morning.. inspiration came in the form of poetry:
Waking up at 5 am;
Soaked in raging waters;
searching frantically for a lifeboat.
Finding comfort in shallow waters
My feet are on the sandy shore.
Silence is calling me;
I hear the distance
Quiet, crackling, a song!
Intricate details emerge all around me..
Light, texture, beauty come forth.
I am aware!
The presence surrounds me
for a fleeting moment.
I grasp on so tight my fingers hurt..
bathing in silence.
Raging waters emerge anew…
Yet I walk..
knowing I can
the presence fo the Universe will come to me
