Frozen…but not the kind from being too cold. It’s the type that comes from a new intimacy with Truth.
Truth came to my full attention this evening.
Truth came to replace its previous stand-in: distant, shallow stories.
Truth revealed itself through expressed bravery and exposure.
It’s easy to be nonchalantly composed when theory runs my life.
“Those problems are ‘over there…’ Is this even really happening? Is it that big of a deal?”
But then I find out and realize that YES. It is. These problems are simmering in people’s lives who I see weekly, more than my own family and dogs. And now, it’s boiled over for me to see…for me to feel.
When people share their vulnerability it allows us to step up and meet them—to fill that once-distant space between us.
There becomes a new layer of intimacy to explore: humanity.
For now, I’m still processing, digesting, and frozen.
…but what’s gonna happen when I melt?
