Five Minute Friday:: Steady

My soul needs a tether

while storms rage around and through me.

Sunlight peeks through the breaks in the clouds

and momentary calm shines down.

Then thunder cracks and lightning flashes

again kicking up the winds of anger and hurt.

Amidst the stinging, deafening rain,

my lips find their voice.

“Jesus, help me!  I need you to steady my heart.”

My red, wet eyes are drawn up

and I look into the Eye of the storm.

There, within the core of this vortex, stillness lies.








About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
