There has been much going on in my life of late that I cannot fully understand . . . or see the purpose of. I was just journaling on “I thought it would feel better than this . . . ” when I felt the Lord revealing a truth to me about being hurt.
I am not saying we should seek to be hurt, but I believe He is reminding me that part of the growing and the new beginning, the healing, is to realize the blessing in all things. As I meditated on all this and wondered if He was going to give me more and ask me to share it later with you all, I saw this quote and it spoke to my heart:
Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.
– Rainer Maria Rilke –
