I am deeply broken today. When I am put in situations where I feel powerless I feel transported right back to childhood. Childhood was not a safe place for me. So I grew up as quickly as I could. I have been an "adult" my whole life. So, because I have no words today, I will offer this prayer that I am meditating and holding on to:
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
