How long has it been? It is so hard to return to writing after a real fear of beginning again. A fear that I have nothing to say. So much sadness and frustration with life has intervened. One of the really hard things about my work is stepping into the pain and heartache of others when you have had to deal with your own. I tend to absorb others pain. I do get to experience the joys as well but it always seems like one needs to have about twenty joys to balance one heartache. Sharing insights out of one’s own confusion is not easy.
I was reading a verse from Psalm 33 that says, “Sing a new song of praise to God.” That’s what I’m trying to do – sing a new song – a new word – a word of hope. The pace of life these days does not lend itself towards healing words so I need to slow down and listen more. I want to listen to the Voice of the Spirit more and get away from the noise that crowds in and drowns out the still small Voice (1 Kings 19:11-13). What do we hear? Where does the healing Word come from?
“Behold I am doing a new thing;: (Is 29:11) I need this intervention – so do we all. Come Spirit and intervene.
