Burdens and their bearers

I know the sun is coming, but I want the grey to stay.

Full day ahead at the office: tapes to mail, an Order of Worship to prepare, e-mails to send, and a billion loose ends to inventory and begin to tie. I'm not daunted— my heart is simply elsewhere.

I wish...

Moment by moment I debate whether silence or speech would be more damning to me. Currently, I opt for silence, my best effort to do no harm. Make no mistake: my heart is not so quiet. God is God and I am not. My questions, my petitions, my hurts, and my hopes are for Him— may I be kept from breaking another by trying to lay a crushing burden on mortal shoulders.

What are You doing, Lord? Why have You placed me here and brought my wild heart to life?


But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. - Hebrews 3:13

Your attempt to keep others from some sort of harm is noble, but be sure you're not cheating your friends out of the chance to... well... be your friends.

My prayers are with you, regardless. Whatever it is, it sounds heavy. *hug*
onesamtwo makes a good point about opening yourself for others to become your friends. At the same time, though, depending on the content of your speech/silence, it can be best to choose silence for the sake of peace (not the same as do-no-harm). Foolish words are remembered longer than foolish silence is.
