anger

A Poem By Heather Jones // 1/5/2019

i'm sorry that i'm angry.
You've done nothing
but be Yourself -
a righteous, holy God.

the fact that i am angry at You
for my own sinfulness
simply fuels my raging fire
against myself.

truly, i'm angry at myself.
i'm angry that i fail so much,
that i could never be
as good as You are
to me.

i'm sorry that i'm weak.
there is nothing i can do.
i am relying on Your goodness
to keep me from burning away.

please hold onto me.

I can’t even count how many times I’ve prayed words much like these lately. You always manage to express these thoughts and feelings so beautifully!

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

I can so relate to this,

I can so relate to this, Heather. You did a good job capturing these feelings.

“You are doing something great with your life—when you are doing all the small things with His great love.” - Ann Voskamp

Romans 5:5

This is also relatable for me! And, like Grace already said, you captured the feelings of these emotions well!

Just something to encourage you Heather:

Romans 5:5 "And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."

C.H. Spurgeon - "God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God. "
