The Brick Wall

my feet bandaged,
my hair pulled back,
my headphones set,
my stretching complete

with the play button I ran
my pulse excelled
sweat began
breathing rigid and hoarse with my dry throat

and then the skip
and then the fuzz
and then the silence

my energy drained
the heat sunk in
my shoes biting
my endurance failing

to the concrete with the music
shattering down
along with the idea of a run

no bike-ride for me
flat tire
no running for me
old shoes
and broken music

tears streamed

why can’t I just worship this time
without the brick wall


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
