In the silence
We hear the truth

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!
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:
Thank you for understanding and may God richly bless you. ~M ♥
As I sit in muted silence
The incessant ringing in my ear
This and that
Dissolve like snowflakes
The beating of my heart
The fatigue that covers me
The feelings of
What I just don’t know
But it seems so hard
So I will sit in the silence
Of my own coursing thoughts
Believing in better days ahead
When the pressure clears
In my head

I haven’t posted much over the past weeks as I’ve been fighting a viral infection. Getting better finally but my thoughts are still jumbled and all over the place. This ramble is what poured out this morning. Have a great day and God bless!

(This is a companion to a previous post on The Silence of God originally posted on April 19, 2014. It occurred to me that we still have the voice of God in the silence and His promises which He will fulfill to those who remain faithful to the end. ~M)
