Time Goes By

Time goes by, and I forget. The highs and lows come and go. I press on.

I remember yesterday like a year passed by. Removed. Details blurry.

Common for me, I’m unphased. Patterns, hidden from sight.

How do I know what happened anymore? Forever gone. Forever past.

Time wandered into the wilderness.

A path leads back. Only through a slip in the fence.

A memory sneaks in. Tarnished, rough, and broken.

Details lost behind. Emotions screaming now. Left with the haunting.

They shout. They cry for attention. And I am lost. Removed from it all.

I forgot why I feel. But I press on.

“Prayer for Spiritual Strength”

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
