Memories

A dark cloud looms… how do you keep up with it all? My mind numb from racing. I have no idea; just keep moving, I guess.

A friend whose father is on the verge of death. I am praying. And remembering.
A girl speaking out against her father. I am disgusted. And avoiding.
A son who has lost his way. I am disappointed. And afraid.
A sister who refuses to acknowledge her family. I am confused. And annoyed.

A man waiting for his Maker, and another lost in his own dark world. A girl tormented by her memories, and a boy trying to find his way. A woman in need of compassion, with a multitude trying to reach her.

Rolling through my head are memories; my own and the ones of those who surround me. Unable to put them down, I am emotionally pulled. Wrung. Wrought. Weary.

Laying my head down, I look up to Him praying for sleep to gain peace… knowing that tomorrow the sun will rise, and so must I.

How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death, and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the LORD’s praise, for he has been good to me. Psalm 13
