My mess is too messy to be cleaned.
I don’t even know how to sort through it all.
It’s overwhelming and it’s deep.
It takes over my heart
and spills into my mouth.
There’s no containing it
No hiding it.
I try to gloss over it’s long, strong roots
but I know I’m only fooling myself.
How do you pluck up weeds you once thought
Were beautiful flowers?
How do you take hold of the root
when you aren’t ready to see them go
Even if it’s killing the planted seed?
My mess is messy.
I can sweep it under a rug but it
bubbles beneath the surface.
I need the One who can clean out my heart
and restore my soul.
Come quickly to redeem this.
Do not delay in standing with me in this.
Give me the strength to take hold of the weeds
and make room for the unknown planted flower.
