When you were born, you were held
in God’s heart and vision
Nothing has changed since the time
you laid in arms at birth
to the time your steps
have crossed upon this Earth.
The sun sets in the night sky
and darkness descends
And we of little faith still believe
in the dawn of tomorrow
God has similar faith in you
If your light feels dim on some days
And you long to return to the shell
from which you were born
There you will find God waiting
to hold you in your imminent return and arrival.
I see a lot of people who are hard on themselves. They think they always have to be “on” and taking care of everything with a positive attitude and uplifted spirit.
Does this have a place in our lives? Of course.
But life cycles and we cycle with it. As the sun sets every day and we have faith it will return, trust yourself enough to know that if you need some quiet, secluded days, that you, like the sun, will eventually return across the sky of those you love and all will again be o.k.
Be gentle with yourself – always. The rest will take care of itself.
