choosing moments

a tender heart
finds its roots
in the soil of suffering

when suffering
a path must be found through it

one path is the way of a hardened heart
a path that closes me off from someone else
and from God

to choose a gentle path
of being pressed into brokenness
is a radical act
with roots that know the fragility
and strength of my soil

this path will root
in the earth of me

it is on this path
where on my knees
I will grow
as I wait before Him
till the dust settles
and the stream runs clear

God gently approaches the soul
as the dew on the flowers
