fasting (12.21pm)

to be certain i am putting all of me into brief time alone with M, i give up what pulls at me most with it’s endless strength.

leaving behind what feels to be biggest need because of declared they-might-need-me.

because sometimes my need for him has to be bigger.

so i set aside connection for the sake of connecting.

so i give up the possibility of being there for the real of in his presence.

so i let go of sharing to take in all he has to share.

and phone that is sometimes too much i stays on counter while we drive away toward us.

 fasting

“even now,” declares the lord,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting and weeping and mourning.”

joel 2:12 (NIV)
