Stress

Stress comes barging in.
He’s trying to
Steal my peace
Crush my joy
Suffocate my thoughts
And take over my life.

Stress is a virus.
He keeps spreading
Quietly
And quickly —
Before I know it,
He has consumed me!

Stress travels with me.
Weighing me down —
Choking me
Digging in
Refusing to let go
Until I cry out.

Stress loves secrecy
Hiding in shadows
Quietly
Consuming me
Until I hand control
Over to the Lord.

One thought on “Stress

  1. I am banging the door shut on stress!!! Little Tavi is teaching me to take life a little slower and not to expect to get a lot accomplished. I am going to enjoy this little bundle of sunshine which the Lord has given us to enjoy.
