Prayer in Distress

heal me father, for i suffer
i am in sore distress
lay your cooling touch
upon my troubled brow
bestow peace unsurpassing
upon the turmoil of my heart

On Fear and Identity

I’ve been a Christian since 1984, growing up in a loving home with two amazing parents. For as long as I could remember God was as real to me as the sun and the moon. That changed six years ago, when I went through a crisis of faith followed by a series of severe anxiety attacks. Those anxiety attacks taught me some valuable lessons and I wanted to take some time to talk about what happened, to explain some of what I learned about fear, about identity and purpose and how God intends for us to live in relationship with Him

Anxiety

an electric buzz
courses through my waking body
til the end of day

Fear and Waiting

the resonance of the mood
lay quietly around me
the vibration a steady hum
in the background of my mind
fear a subtle force at work
in the chambers of my heart
leaves me anxious…
