The Bible in my hallway

I've see you in the hall almost every day these last few weeks, yet I haven't acknowledge your presence. We've known each other for years and while we've had our differences, I've always seemed to come back to you whenever I feel like I'm falling apart. You always know what to say at the very moment I need it the most, and I know that among all the words inside you I will always find my way.

I realize that every time I just walk by and don't say hello I'm slipping farther away. I can spend my night praying to keep our connection but at some point I'm going to have to work harder at the end of the day. So I'm not walking past you again without picking you up like an old friend. I've lost myself before and you were the one who brought me back to where I needed to be. I'll never be able to thank you for that, but I can start by reminding myself every day why I believe.
