As I was rummaging through my old writings I came across a few letters I wrote from when I was about thirteen. My inspiration for this writing came from there.
Dear Body, I’m sorry for looking away as soon as I would catch my reflection in the mirror….
I’m sorry for masking myself with make up and replacing my confidence….
For the times I should of fed you and didn’t……
When I should’ve kept you out of harms reach and put you in the dead-center of it….
For not letting the tears that should’ve been righteously shed but instead ignored….
For burning myself out with lists beyond lists….
For allowing my mouth to kill and not save….
For allowing my thoughts to invade truths Christ always wants to whisper to my heart….
Apologies are great but no one believes them until they are seen through action and so body I’m ready.
I’m ready to take off my mask…
To surround you in good company…
To let the tears fall…
To shut the mouth of this lion…
To rest in Christ.
A Changed Heart.
