Your Body’s Insatiable Lust For More

Your body wants more.

In fact, she is demanding it, and has been for some time now.

{Insert pronoun of your choosing for the remainder.}

She’s letting you know she’s fucking over the bullshit way you’ve been living or… perhaps even more aptly… not living.

So she’s been carving her pain and rage in the marrow of your bones, praying that you’ll finally, finally take your hands off of your ears and pay attention.

But you aren’t listening, are you?

Oh, you can hear her, of course.

But you’re either ignoring her cries because it doesn’t yet feel safe to let them run free in the wilds of your soul…

Or you can hear her, but you can’t figure out how to understand what she is trying to tell you or show you.

Except… Running away and hiding from her is no longer working.

Truth be told, it never really was.

But it was what you had at the time and then, before you knew it, you’d been stuck in a holding pattern for longer than you would’ve ever thought possible.

The next step?

Leaning in even more. Saying yes to the fear… and to the pain.

Oh. And being willing to look at the guilt and shame and self-doubt that you’ve been pretending doesn’t exist.

Wait… Not in you, right? There’s just no way.

Because you know how to carry armor, and you know how to carry it well.

You’ve become a boss at keeping the world at arms-length, only letting it in when it feels safe… or when you’ve felt like you didn’t have a choice.

But something has changed… Or it’s trying to, anyways.

There’s been a gnawing in your heart and belly, and a hunger in your womb… calling down sovereignty and God into all that you are.

But you’re still in the quicksand.

And the idea of getting out is even harder to comprehend than the thought of allowing the continuous slow suffocation of your soul’s work and Truth.

I don’t have your answers. No one does, save you.

But I will offer you this:

“The only way out is through.”

So go deeper… And touch the bones.

And see what your body is offering up to be interwoven into the fabric of your soul.
