to run from real life crisis into an escape from fear is to surely create an idol to save you.
we escape reality and run to feel good.
what we use to feel good, that is the altar of another god.
our crisis of danger is never the visible situation.
the only real trouble is separation from the Lord Himself as a real being
and the making of a silent substitute,
cold and unanswering.

winter moments

when we are hurt
we tend to close in on ourselves
it is winter
the ground becomes hard
and sometimes winter lasts a long time
