what if I let go
dropped the reins
took my hands off the wheel
stopped fighting to row or swim against the current
and allowed God to take me downstream?
could I catch my breath
ease into the flow, relax into His hand?
how much energy am I wasting
trying to keep my head above the water?
while Jesus whispers, again and again
come with me, deeper
even below the waves
I'm here to hold you
and keep you safe
and just when you think
there is no air
breathe in Me
I have been writing here
through a scattering of thunderstorms
blowing in and out, shifting light and dark
and then a rainbow, as if He is saying
remember My promises
all of them
breathing in the whitespace with Bonnie
