Just Stop

he said gently

Just stop

Tell me all about it
and I will stay
right here
beside you

until it’s over

Reflections on this poem

How does it feel to have God gently invite you to stop?

What is it you need to tell God about?

What frightens you about stopping?

What helps you to stop and let yourself be held in love?

How have you experienced God staying with you until it’s over?
