Emotions! Deep within the pit of my soul, they sit. The rest well, as long as the winds of life are calm and cool. Yet, a hurricane season began on yesterday. My heart was afloat, peacefully upon this vast span of water. The night before, there were a few concerning swells in my spirit, and I prayed for nothing more, nothing worse. Then on Sunday morning, "BOOM" a massive rogue wave hits, and hits hard; knee-buckling it was. From my gut it grew and flowed out of me in the forms of cries and tears. Soon after, the seas were calm again, and I said to myself, "I'm good. I can handle this!"
Throughout the day, others on their own rafts, began to show up. For a time, we tied our rafts together which seemed to keep the rogues at bey. Yet we knew, at a point, we'd have to break off from one another to float on, in our individual ways. Each time, I find myself alone, one of these spirit-menacing waves hits, bends me over, but does not break me down. ROGUISH!! ROGUISH!! ROGUISH, THEY ARE!!
Lord, be the strength of my family right now! In Jesus' name I pray, Lord. AMEN!!
