tangled christmas lights

I feel like tangled Christmas lights.

Tied in knots of schedules, meetings, to-do lists,

Tangled knots of expectations and disappointments.

Tangled knots of broken hearts and injustices.

Tied in the knots of messy relationships.

I feel like tangled Christmas lights.

But even tangled up in knots, when you plug in the clump of Christmas lights–they still light up.

I may be a tangled mess, but when I am connected to God, I can still shine.
