Are You A Stuffer– Stuffing All Your Feelings Down?

Image result for hiding feelings inside

I want to share this poem after a day of emotional turmoil and realizing that we can’t continue to hide our feelings and stuff them all down. There will come a day when they will be released… and then healing and restoration can occur in new levels.

Are you a stuffer?
Stuffing all your feeling down…
and sometimes so deeply buried…
you think they will never be found.
Then something happens to you…
and these feelings just flow…
with tears of brokenness and heartache…
and even anger you didn’t know.
For all the wounds of your past…
had been buried so deep…
with feelings of anger and bitterness…
not realizing you had stuffed them to keep.
But we need to unpack…
and put our stuffing to an end…
to verbalize our feelings…
and enjoy life again.
For we have stuffed our feelings…
like a turkey stuffed at Thanksgiving…
but we need to release it all…
and begin the process of forgiving.
Forgiving ourselves first…
for any blame we have taken…
and forgiving ourselves…
for any mistakes we have been making.
For when we stuff and stuff…
like we may eat too much and vomit it up…
we will reach a point or a trigger…
where all our buried feelings may erupt.
So let’s quit stuffing our feelings…
and pretending that they are all gone…
for God knows what’s in our hearts…
even when it’s contents to us are unknown.
For God’s grace and mercy…
are always more than enough…
so we don’t need to hide our feelings…
and inwardly stuff, stuff, stuff.
