3 Things To Do If You Are Feeling Invisible

1458172774271

As we begin to fade, seeming to become invisible to those around us, our emotions mounting in a cascade crashing over us like waves onto the shore pushed by stormy winds. No one seems to care; no one seems to notice. Our contributions seems unwanted and unappreciated. Our feelings will deceive us so I offer this, STOP!

  1. Seek God first
  2. Seek silence
  3. Seek truth

This is exactly what I will be doing. I do not necessarily feel invisible to those around me, but to myself. I am feeling, (yes feelings are deceptive) and yet I have an overwhelming sense that I am losing myself, becoming invisible to myself. I am unsure who I am, what I want and even what I need anymore. I have been acquiescing to what I think others want me to be. Truth is I can’t be what everyone else wants or expects me to be.

Thus, I have decided to take a break, from blogging and social media for awhile and the voices in my head. For how long? I cannot say at this point. Only a day, a week a month, I just don’t know.

All I know is that I need to find myself. I must protect my heart which is frayed and worn. So, I will dive into the undiscovered to:

  • Seek God
  • Seek silence
  • Seek truth

Thank you for understanding and may God richly bless you. ~M ♥

Between the Eternities – A Poem

wpid-wp-1409436116985.jpegWe search, we seek to find.
What do we desire?
To fill our heart’s empty place,
with the extravagance of holy fire.
Will we ever be satisfied?
As we sojourn between the eternities,
what can we hope to find?
A raging fire in a single candle flame.
A master symphony in one single note.
A rainbow of color in single drop of rain.
A stretch of beach in one single grain of sand.
A lush forest overgrown in a single leaf.
A year’s harvest in a single piece of fruit.
A story of timeless truths in one single word.
A whole life lived in one single simple moment.
We strive, we slave to find.
Do we believe our desires?
When all is freely given if only,
we would surrender and just believe.
