I found myself
broken on the floor in tears.
I did not know what to do or where to go
who I had become.
So I asked
Rarely do I ask for much
I am more content to pursue intimacy
than to ask for things
brokenness makes you ask for things
I started asking
and I waited…
I listened until
I was frustrated with the silence
Just before I fell asleep, I lay there
with dried up eyes and I heard:
“I am not a genie. I am your God, and I love you. If you want strength, I am not just going to GIVE you strength. It will start to get really difficult now. Will you be strong in those times or not. I am not a genie; I am your God who loves you.”
