Pain Chapters

Everything is bright
And you feel good about who you are
And then someone you know gets cancer
Or someone loses a child
And it’s like a tidal wave crashes over you leaving you recoiling from the shock
And you walk around for days with your insides burning
And you are tormented by
every unkind word you’ve ever said
And every moment you’ve failed to appreciate you mother
And all the forgiveness you’ve withheld
And you look to heaven
Asking Him ‘Why?’
And you feel the weight of His sovereignty silencing you
And you again remember that
He is writing His story
Permitting pain into the script
To magnify the beauty of His love
Giving us Himself
