I know it’s easier for you to splatter black paint
than it would be to accept
the oil spill
that your life has become.
I also know I’m kind, quick to forgive
and strong enough to scrape your darkness off me-
without complaining too much.
But the truth is:
I am not a blank canvas for you to paint your shadows on.
I prefer bright colors,
and I’m tired of cleaning up your messes –
Enough is Enough.
God, thank you for teaching me about forgiveness,
Now I want to learn how it feels to be safe.
Can you send your angels to guard this sacred space
and shine Your brilliance through everything I create?
Thank you –
In Jesus name,
