Leaning

It is becoming increasingly difficult
This leaning on everlasting arms
Because every once in an often while
I tumble over and realize I wasn’t really leaning on what I thought I was
I know the only way to let it out;
This fragrance kept so safely inside is like Mary –
To break this shell that holds it in
Yet often I’m afraid I’ve had it too long I forgo the value inside for the worth of the gates that hold it back
Mary understood what I have trouble remembering
That the box was to hold it all for just a while
That it became when its walls would let loose
I am afraid to break Lord
I am afraid
But You have not given me a spirit of fear
So help me find this strength You see in me
…this strength you leave in me
Because…
It is becoming increasingly difficult
This leaning on everlasting arms
