The Battle Within Rages
But if I say, "I will not mention him or speak any more in his name," his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot. ~ Jeremiah 20:9
Rage is the perfect word to describe what is happening under my skin: a furious intensity; a burning desire; a passion. I temper this inner war with daily prayers for balance and wisdom. The firestorm must not exceed its boundaries yet it must be allowed to burn along its preset course.
The wild sagebrush of my own life supplies the fuel for this blaze. All of my hideouts are demolished. Fear and anxiety are left behind in the ashes. The Phoenix bird will emerge from the flames and tell his story. Stay tuned.
