The Highs and Lows
The highs and lows
Of my emotion
Pin me in a whirlwind
That sucks the sweetness
From my breath
And I can only taste
The bitter from those moments
That catch me unaware.
I need a cleansing of my palette,
Perhaps a cool peppermint
That overrides the devastation
On my tongue;
That soothes feelings
Spinning in shallow ground.
I need a hope that rescues me
From scrambled thoughts,
Peace that washes away
The doom of my tomorrow.
I need the freshness of attitude
That uproots the aftermath
That breaks unseen circles
Binding me to disappointments.
I need the One who
Straightens circular paths,
And helps me breathe easy.
I need Jesus.

Ah, Pam, we all need Him! Those highs and lows seem to be one of the greatest forms of warfare that any of us has to deal with. And now, I say to you... "You are more than a conqueror. WE are MORE than conquerors!" The clouds can't hang around long... not in the Light of Jesus! Hallelujah!
