The Year of Small Spaces

2020 has felt like four walls, at varying times moving closer to me or away. Usually closer.
.
I have claustrophobia. It shows up most often in my nightmares, but any space that feels too small makes me feel like giving up, like hiding, like I can’t breathe.
.
This is the year of small spaces. Of walls closing in. Of masks. Of anxiety and loss pressing hard on the heart, making even the chest feel like a smaller space.
.
And I’d be remiss to ignore all my brothers and sisters crying, “I can’t breathe.” Not a metaphor, but an actuality.
.
Jesus, bring freedom, healing, and space. Amen.
