Hey there, Sadness

Hey there, Sadness,
I see you and I’m making space for you.
You are not my identity
But you are a part of my reality.
I am choosing what is real over image and appearances.
I know I’ve not been kind or gentle with you in the past by ignoring, minimizing, pushing you aside, and I’m so sorry about that.
I can’t promise I’ll always be gentle and kind with you now, but I’d like to try.
Truth is, I’m scared if I let you in, you’ll move in forever and take over.
But someone told me if I walk with you long enough, I just might find I’m walking with Jesus and that sounds really good.
I want to walk with Jesus so I will walk with you.
Hey there, Sadness. I see you.
