What do you do when you get stuck in your head?
When all you hear are the voices spewing lies?
“You just said the wrong thing.”
“You just did the wrong thing.”
“How annoying you are.”
“You aren’t enough. Stop trying. Go home.”
“Way to mess that up.”
“You aren’t doing enough. No wonder you’re alone.”
“You’re such an idiot.”
“You’ll just mess that up too. Why bother.”
“There’s so much better than you.”
“They’ll leave too. Put your guard up and hope it doesn’t hurt too much.”
“Oh look! You screwed up. Why are you surprise.”
The voices are so loud that you’re sitting on your kitchen floor, hands over your ears, trying to get them to stop. You know truth. It’s deep in your heart. But you can’t get to it. The mire of lies is so thick, it chokes out the Light.
The loneliness of it all crushes the breath out of you. Not only can you not hear the truth, but you can’t feel it or even can cry for help. You don’t even know how to. You feel silly for listening to the voices, for giving in and letting them choke out the light.
But there you are. Stuck.
There’s Grace for that.
When you’re stuck in your head, there’s grace for that.
When you feel like the voices won’t die, there’s grace for that.
When the failures, the insecurities, the inadequacies, the imperfections, the struggles are all staring you in the face with a huge distorted mirror…..
There’s grace for that.
You may not feel it, but it’s there.
You may not see it, but it’s there.
But ultimately, your Father is there.
Light is there.
Like the immovable stars piercing the darkest night, Light is there.
When the mire is thick, hold on. There’s grace for that.
Grace, mercy, love. Light.
