What matters the most?

Who matters the most?

…and why do I keep forgetting this, time and time again?

A slap in the face

21 Jun

It really feels like I’ve gotten one.

I’ve always been horrendously selfish. You know that. It’s something I’m struggling to change, but with Your grace… I can.

Fill my heart with more love.

Fill it with more compassion.

Help me step off this comfortable pedestal of impassivity and apathy.

I want to care for others like Jesus cares for me.

Fill my heart with Your Spirit, that I may be more like You and that out of the overflow of my heart there will be… love.

If I have failed to be what I ought to have been, if I have ever brought anyone down with my words, actions or lack of action, I am truly and deeply sorry. I know I have wronged many people on numerous occasions.  Forgive me.

I miss it…

I miss the me who dared to say “I dream dreams, but even if they don’t come true, I would be better off for having dreamt them”.

Looking back at the dreams that I have dreamt, some came true.
Some didn’t.

But I am better off for having dared to dream them.

So why can’t I dream now?

Why is there only emptiness?

How long has it been like this, Father?

They used to dance in my mind… I could almost see them floating there, calling to me, elusive songs that I always strained to hear, but only rarely ever captured…but when I did manage to catch them, often, they would stun me with their beauty.

At that time, when letting go…did I somehow let go of too much?

I don’t think so though.

You told me to let go of everything.

I’ll trust You now. I’ll hold on to Your Word, Your promises and of course, to You – because I’ve learnt that clinging on to anything else will only lead to it crumbling to dust between my fingers.
