Stormy Seas

My heart is not calm.
Beneath the facade is an ache I can't ignore,
pain that swells with each breath.
Hurts that don't go away.
Needs that aren't fulfilled.
Grey clouds cover my soul.

I need, once again, to know beyond a doubt,
and would love to hook my feeling to that knowledge,
that I am loved with
an everlasting love.
This love will last longer than childhood.
Or motherhood.
Or marriage.
Or death.

Hmmm. Sounds like a familiar theme. I can relate. But the good news is...Romans 8

But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

If you are like me you KNOW this, but you forget... as in 2 Peter 1.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;
seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.
For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the (N)corruption that is in the world by lust.
Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence,knowledge,
and in your knowledge, (S)self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness,
and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love.

For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins.

Gotta run. I'm praying!
