Painkillers

Holy Comforter, Living God, Healing Jesus,
I really wish your soothing comfort kicked in faster
like the immediacy of morphine or a fast-acting Tylenol.
There are days when I would prefer to eliminate the ache
of caring, the brokenness of loving, the heartbreak of seeing.

You too, God?

  1. Rachel…I found your website/blog recently through “Alive Now”. The above words resonate with me on a deep level as I minister to those in anguish. At times it feels too much as I too am broken.
    Thanks for attaching words to my soul.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to comment, Juanita, and sharing a bit of your experience. (And oh! you’ve quoted one of my favorite lines from “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” in your 1/9/13 post!)
