Let Not the Silence be Unbroken

Put down the hand that covers your mouth when you begin to speak about the pain your soul has been bearing for what seems to be an eternity.

Tear down the wall you have built around your heart that allows you to love only from a distance and never build a bond with those whose bodies press against the other side trying to get close to you.

Step out of your armor, put down your shield and learn to trust with caution knowing God will protect you from all harm.

Do not continue to live your life in fear.

Break free of the chains that have you tied to situations that do not bring you happiness.

If you are unhappy, you are vulnerable to temptations we face daily that only bring temporary happiness with an end result of more pain.

Lift your feet out of the cement shoes that have you standing in place and step out on faith.

Achieve you goals, explore your dreams, educate your mind, and make use of every talent that you possess.

Remove the glue that keeps your lips sealed and share your deepest thoughts and feelings.

Cry, laugh, scream, moan, and whisper until your soul and mind feel at ease.

No longer shall you be bound by all the hurt, anger and disappointments of the past.

Hold your head up and dry your eyes for you are restored.

The silence is now broken and you are free!

Joni Durham
