Sometimes I struggle . . .

Sometimes I struggle with:

condemnation vs correction

correction vs compassion

compassion vs creation

Sometimes I tremble:

at the mention of your name

at the enormity of  my failures

at the infinity of Alev Tav

Sometimes I weep:

when I should be rejoicing

Sometimes I rejoice:

When I should be weeping

And sometimes

when I think

I almost understand

when I think

I can almost touch your face

I realize

How big

you are

and how small

I am

. . . those are the times

when I realize how

far from me

the YOU is . . .

it is in those moments

that I feel the most safe –

the most loved.



About Even If Ministries

Dani'el 3:17-18 (CJB) 17 Your majesty, if our God, whom we serve, is able to save us, he will save us from the blazing hot furnace and from your power. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want you to know, your majesty, that we will neither serve your gods nor worship the gold statue which you have set up.”
