Hey, dear friends. Wanted to be back to some in-depth writing. Didn’t want this to be a prolonged break…but, looks like it will be. I just can’t seem to summon up anything but the dreariness I have been facing…and this space isn’t intended to be about that. It’s in the byline-It’s not about me. It’s about Him.

So…all this to say this honest little bit of poetry is my final piece to you- for a while. I hope to come back down the road a ways.

Thank you for your love, prayers, and concern. Know I hold the same for you in my heart.

I can’t do this anymore…

At least, not for quite a while.

Not packing up exactly,

Not erasing these efforts as in days past

Nor leaving an empty store.

To that determination I’m holding fast.

Just…can’t keep coming here right now

With my dialed-in smile.

Feels like any could spot it as a fake

For half a mile.

Nor can I keep comfortably coming,

Wagging this laundry bag of sorrow

And try to claim it’ll be scrubbed

Bright for the morrow.

Right now…it’s just not.

And I am caught

Without a pretty phrase left to my coffers.

No ready cheer, no heady offers.

So…it’s silence for the time being.

Not sure how long

Nor what this round of solitude will bring.

All I do know is that

I know Jesus is wherever the road takes me.

All I can rest in is that He never forsakes me…

And so He never forsakes any of us.

Until such a time as I feel He’s calling me back to this space…

Thanks for reading. Blessings and prayers to you, dear friends. ❤

  1. My heart aches for you, Marissa. But I know you will get through this difficult time and come out the other side even stronger than you were before. I know, because it is evident from your writings that your faith, hope, and trust is in the Lord.

    Our Abba Father is so good. Even when everything is falling apart around us, He is still on the throne.

    I’m sending love and ((HUGS)). Praying for you ❤❤

  3. Keep forging on, Marisa, and take heart in the words you stated so truthfully and elegantly: “All I do know is that I know Jesus is wherever the road takes me.”

    This is so true … and so encouraging! May God bathe you in His peace!

  4. I so understand. I’m sorry you’re so caught in the greys too, Marisa. It’s hard. It’s really hard to come up with those cheery words and wear a fake smile. I tend to hide when I can’t come up with the words. We’ve both gotta trust our Saviour and cling to His promises. In time we’ll soar again. Love and prayers to you dear sis in Him. ❤
