There comes a point
Where everything becomes heavy--
Twenty ton dumbbells
Weighted across my neck--
Pressing down on my windpipe,
Suffocating me slowly...
I hear vertebrae shattering
Somewhere in my spine
And I struggle to stand.
Cast off this hopelessness
For something less fatal
--it feels like giving up
When instinct says to fight
But I can't breathe.
Gravity is conquering me
And I am powerless.

I've been here before...
Retreated into myself,
Relinquish the battle over to Him
Release the weights
So my struggles disappear
And even though you deprive me
--of air, of strength, of sanity--
You won't kill me.
I'm much stronger when I'm weak
In your world, I cease to exist
And you can't hurt me here.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
