This too will pass

Often I find myself counseling someone who is anxious.  I am no stranger to anxiety.  Often I need to take my own advice.  Sometimes I even do.

I remind people every day
This too will pass.
Take a breath
Find a quiet place
Shut the door.
This too will pass.
I remind myself
Again and again,
Particularly now,
This too will pass.
Find a quiet place
Shut the door.
Post the sign that says
In session;
Pull down the shade.
No one has to know
I am in session
With myself.
God listens with every breath
I take.
No money changes hands.
God does not charge
A fee.
