oxygen mask

God, it hurts so much to move today

But with all that is going on, do I truly have the luxury of sitting still?

God, it hurts deeply to know and see and hear about all of the devastation experienced daily across the globe

But do I have the right to disconnect?  Binge watch my favorite series? Choose to not show up every time, yet simply pray?

God, I am sorry about all of this whining, I know that not everything is about me.

But sometimes it has to be. Unapologetically. The pain is real.

Help me, O God, to put on my oxygen mask first—and quickly!—so that I might be fully capable of getting to the work of helping others and together making sure we all live.


Deep breath.


We hope you'll join the conversation!
