learning how to breathe

I feel like I’m drowning in a sea of desperation from within

I want to breathe but I don’t know where to begin

I’m suffocating in the waves of my own regret

I’m trying so hard to remember who I used to be, but it feels like we never even met


My spirit and flesh are always disagreeing

And my heart is somehow always in between

“Do that, don’t do this.”

I accept the temporary even if it’s just a momentary bliss


How can I escape this prison full of lies?

These worldly items I idolize

I know in the end who can make me complete

So, why do I listen to satan’s sweet sounds of deceit?


I’m learning to say no and keep His word close to me

I’m letting go of my foolish desires and letting what He wants take the front seat

I lay my failures at His feet

And it’s at this time, I learned how to breathe




“For he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him.”

-Mark 5:4

  1. I read that God allows these dark times to come to us to remind us to draw closer to Him. Makes sense to me. I am learning to have gratitude about the difficult times and to see them as opportunities to grow. Not an easy lesson but one worth working on. Beautiful blog you have. hugs, pat, Source of Inspiration
