We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
I’m joining in with a group of writers for Five Minute Friday where we’re given a prompt (this week it’s SHARE) and write for five minutes about it.
Tears fall and grief manifests as a lump of pain in my gut. I pour out my heart.
Lord, I feel so alone in this.
My lament is heard, and I am reminded of what I have seen about the character of the Divine this week. He sympathizes with my weakness; he understands my grief.
I hear a whisper; the still, small voice of the One who knows me best, and who loves me most: you are not alone; I am with you always.
The circumstance doesn’t change but I do. Through sharing my heart, and admitting my weakness, I become strong.
And it is as if scales fall from my eyes and I see Truth.
The answer comes as the Light shines and I see a way through.
And it is all framed in Love.
