Eric Overby
“Standing at the edge of my fears
And contemplating them
Is a healthy exercise.
The extent of the boundaries
Of who I believe myself to be.

What is in question as I stand
Safely at the border of myself
And think of leaping
Or continuing on?

What happens when I walk
To the extent of "I"
And then keep walking?
Who am I then?”
Eric Overby, Senses

“When you are doing all that you know to do

yet all hell is breaking out around you,

Hold onto your faith

don't you dare break!

You're on the edge of your breakthrough

Now is the time to praise your way through!

God has already made a way for you.

Remain prayerful & thankful!”
Sanjo Jendayi
