You ask God to take it away because you can’t see it happening.
You try to push it down because when it bubbles up, it only hurts.
You try to change it because maybe if you reshape it, then it will be more acceptable,
It seems like an ethereal being that floats in and out of your life, tormenting you because you can’t have it. Yet it’s beautiful and shining and wonderfully…radiant.
you believe that it can happen. Somewhere inside you it just won’t die. It just keeps growing and sometimes it doesn’t feel like torment it feels like joy. For a moment you let yourself believe because you think that there might be a possibility of it happening. Sometimes there are moments when the opportunity does arrive to see it fly, to see it soar high and happy and free.
But it eventually has to land because it’s time to make dinner, or get the kids ready for bed, or wipe away tears after spilled milk. Sometimes it landed out of sheer exhaustion. Perhaps a lack of resources or support or distraction cut it’s flight short this time.
But I’ll tell you this, my sister, if it’s your true passion it will fly again one day. In the right season, in the right time.
When all that is needed comes together. So that can it fly free without having to land again.
There will be the resources, the provision, the support and the time to see it soar higher and higher. When it bubbles up you can let it bubble as much as it wants to. It can shine as bright as it needs to.
Maybe, just maybe those same kids that you made dinner for, or wiped tears from their eyes will help you in accomplishing this flight of passion. They will be passengers on board because you gave them first class seats to your life. They will soar through the clouds and be enveloped in the warm glow of your creativity. They will be inspired to take their own flight into great skies one day. You will know that flame that was to hot to touch is now a torch that leads and teaches and encourages others.
Others that you were once like a long time ago.
They will look up into that sky
while their fires burn
that one day
