The Chair In Uncomfortable

The story of this photo and poem goes back to 2014 when I spent a few weeks in El Salvador.

I found myself in a very uncomfortable situation. It's in those times that the questions and doubts come the quickest and it's suddenly not just about this moment not going well, but about who I am and why I exist and if God cares and if He's here. My mind searched for answers as I searched with my camera for something beautiful. Peaking in the door of a tiny El Salvadorian house tucked away in the mountains, I found this chair, sitting in the light of the window, and I realized how it told my story and the choices I must make. This is a reminder to me that I've chosen not to base my life on sight and I've chosen to sit in the Light.

What to look for when frozen

in a moment uncomfortable?

Am I chosen?

In this lingering moment uncontrollable?

Back and forth

I search and search

for something stable,

beautiful,

unmovable.

Do I sit frozen stuck, scared?

But there is light in the window

streaming through,

something beautiful

in the moment uncomfortable,

something still

in the moment uncontrollable.

though in the dark room of crashing questions,

I choose to sit in the Light.

I refuse to take Fear’s suggestions

Refuse life by sight.
