Sometimes I think my heart could explode inside my chest and no one would know why.
You see, the intensity of love that I feel for others is hidden under this hardened exterior that avoids human interaction, unless someone I deeply love is hurting. I want to be God’s vessel of love for my sisters and brothers who are going through difficult times. The problem is, my heart is about to explode with the love that I feel and no one knows this side of me because I drive people away with my intensity, the fierceness of love.
So, I keep turning it back over to God and crying out to Him on their behalf, for their healing and deliverance and restoration, for them to be whole and complete in Him. All the while forgetting to pray for myself because my loved ones are worth every ounce and syllable I can muster in their stead.
