The Gulf Oil Spill, what a catastrophe...
what a picture
What a picture of life.
Our hearts, our hurts ...
but there is a hole in our core
just like there is a hole in the earth
and just as the oil gushes out, even now...
eventually life is too much
the days are too heavy
and out it comes...
and we are covered
feeling the sludge
so very burdened
all is miry
we are covered
and there is no fast solution
because that hole in our core
it's always going to be there...
is always going to be available to be bruised,
is that One that promises to wash us and make us whiter than snow...
the One that promises to stick closer than a brother...
the One who was betrayed by his friends...
the One who on the darkest day in history,
so that we,
even sitting in sludge of our own creation,
can cry out and say,
and with hands gentle but firm,
He picks us up...
he wipes us down,
he washes us off,
and he makes us clean...
and He gives us a Comforter...
because He knows what it's like
to be in the sludge
he fought His way out of it...so that He could pull us out too!
He's got us covered.
