restless today
anxiety
panic
mental whirling

so many threads
so many tasks

I know

to get through
settle down to it
stitch by stitch
tick by tick
tock by tock

but

can’t settle
can’t sit
what if . . . what if

then

the Spirit Himself
testifies
You are My child

if

any all or none
get done
You are My child

so
my times are in your hands

to it
stitch by stitch
tick by tick
tock by tock

one step forward
and listen . . .

Romans 8:15, 16 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.  And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
