A 31 day journal for the easily overstimulated humans.
(Because we exist, and we desire to live well. Not just hide well.)
The Dwelling Place has always existed, though I have not always visited.
It is the place we go when we can’t just go.
It is the place where we meet with Holy Spirit.
It is the place where we are stilled.
It is the place which gives us a moment’s peace.
It is the place we live from.
Less escaping. More embracing.
Never closed for the season. Never overbooked.
Never not prepared for our arrival.
Always welcomes with open arms.
This place is not a thing but a face.
our Dwelling Place.

| Day #15
Squeeze me gently and smile at me Father,
I never want to be without Your presence.
You are life itself, you are the air I breathe,
come closer, a little closer now and hold me.
Let me take a bite of your truth
and swallow it whole,
let it disperse throughout my inner parts.
Let me drink up hope
and feel it washing down my throat,
let it disperse and quench my thirst.
Let me stay with You in green pasture
where wild things grow and miracles bloom.
Let me be swept away by the winds of your love
where you bring about impossibilties
and make life more than a human
ever thought it could be.
In your arms and presence
let me always remain,
even when life is stormy rain.
Let me hide under you for shelter
Let me be fully cloaked in your
peace where nothing can touch
the touchable parts of me.
Let me remain in you alone,
no matter how battered my outsides appear,
inward and onward you move to mold
me into your princess who has much more
to come on the flip side.
The Good News Translation
3 You, Lord, give perfect peace
to those who keep their purpose firm
and put their trust in you.

***Join me each October day for the #write31days event (learn more here) for a gentle fleshing out of the thoughts, as I seek to share journal-style + by poetry, past experiences with anxiety and learning how to live and thrive after discovering about ptsd.
Let’s lean into Truth together.
Let’s trust God moment by moment.
