choke on it.
it hit me earlier this week, and i remembered again tonight - something i wanted to tell you.
jesus is a mirror. a mirror pulsing with love and acceptance. but a mirror nevertheless.
sometimes i see what's in it and i am so so so happy.
and sometimes i just want to choke on what's there. i don't like what it's telling me. i don't want to look into my own shadow, or fear, or shame.
and yet, every time i do, i find the love and acceptance behind what i started to choke on and reject.
so, jesus is a mirror. my wish for you is that you look all the way in, and then even if you choke on what you see, keep looking.
