15 Dec Soothing the beast inside me.

Tires and tears.

Helplessness, not Holiness.

Sanity more than vanity.

Some Saturday morn’s I go to a local school and flip a truck tire, over and over and over.  With each modified power clean, I try to wear away the sad stories I heard that week, and hurl skyward the memories that haunt me. Only…

No matter how long I grunt, and work, and spit, and sweat… no amount of maximum exertion washes my heart, cleanses my mind, or leaves my soul still.  No, that only happens when I sit, and….

Test Him.  Cry out to Him.  He’s here, now.

And He loves you more than you’ll ever know…

‘Til Eternity.
