The Difficult Journey

Everyone experiences heartbreak; everyone is in need of tenderness and compassion. At some point in our lives, we all have to face the difficult journey of coming to terms with feelings of rejection and humiliation and fear. These very real and very painful feelings, in time and in prayer, become an authentic path from despair to hope. Tragedies and disasters become places of courage, of perseverance, places where we learn to plumb the depths of our inner life, our true essence, and are able, by God’s grace, to move from rejection and terror to healing and hope. Love grows from that deep-rooted pain within the universe where God is present, and ever-willing to embrace us and bless us.

    Thank you for the encouragement. Sometimes, though, the hurt just won’t go away!
