Yesterday, after I got home from church, I watched a T.D. Jakes sermon a friend had recommended (“Spellbreaker”) to center my spirit. Afterwards, I took a walk to center my senses. A sensory engagement with nature reminds me how big God is. It clears out the dark thoughts that crowd my mind and gets my perspective right.
2012 is my year. It’s my year for major changes, for shaking off the patterns and circumstances that made 2011 so miserable. Making major changes doesn’t come without hard work and two of the most difficult things for me — patience and trust. The past 2+ months have been a roller coaster of excitement and discouragement, hope and despair. I know how easy it is when the despondency takes over to drown in it. Hence the deliberate shift in focus, the rejuvenation of spirit, mind, and body.
I’m a little rusty–been a while since I’ve written–but…
Picking up speed, swishing at the base
Call the Plumber
Caught on something that refuses to be washed away
Here comes the Plumber now
Pulling up you and the last shread of hope
that kept you from slipping away
