Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for Thou art with me.
Psalm 23:4

I was hanging out at the zoo, sitting on a little ledge next to the anaconda tank. The anaconda was huge, around 20 feet I think. When I sat down he was off in some other part of the tank but after a bit I caught sight of something in my peripheral vision. There I was nose to nose with this giant snake.

I jumped as terror rushed through my body for a brief moment till I remembered that there was a couple of inches of glass between the two of us.

That is how I am with some of the memories from my past. I don't mind looking at them because there is a thick wall of glass between me and them. It prevents me from having to feel the emotions of what happened.

But what would happen if the Lord took that thick glass wall down. Would I drown in the emotions that would come rushing out? What about the snakes that I can't see yet, I know that they are even worse. Will you protect me Lord?
