Shattering


This week snow and frozen water that had filled ditches, loosened, moved away in a rush, leaving a blanket of ice behind, to splinter and hang on branches and reeds. 

My heart too
feels this breaking away
this shattering
edges sharp, fragile
thin enough to be
transparent
yet holding on
with tenacity

this then
is how I choose
to grasp Him
broken, raw, bleeding
surrendered
to His hands
where even pain
reflects light
and He creates
beauty

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 NIV
