What's the word for when your heart breaks and you never intended for it to...

what is that sound, you swear, it must be audible...

death...click

betrayal...click

fired...click

miscarriage...click

cancer...click

click...
click...
click..

the words fall through muddled understanding...
you hear them
but you can't be hearing correctly...
can you?
you can't seem to distinguish the intonation...
over
the
clicking...
the clicks,
your heart, marking moments...
moments you never, ever imagined...

your breath stuck
somewhere between actually breathing...

you make it through the moment...
the day...
and your heart has the audacity
to keep beating...

our hearts break and we recover...
because the God that created us put within us a desire...

a strength to believe
better things will happen

a longing to become
what He intended

a promise to listen
when we cry out , ''why'' ...

a resilience that whispers
through a sadness that catches your breath...still

LIVE


"I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of..."

Yes. There were a few clicks in a row this past weekend. So strange to know most of the people around me have not heard my clicking.
