I want to tell you a secret about me. I naturally want to run for pain not only in myself but in others. When I see someone I care about hurting physically or emotionally, it pains me too. I sometimes even can physically hurt for them. I used to want to be as far from the pain as I could get, but as usual, God has had other plans.
This week, I am spending time with a dear friend who is really struggling. Her health is not great, and she is so tired in every respect. It is hard to watch a young woman who is one of the strongest people I know so week and dependant. Is hard to keep reminding her of the same things over and over again. However, I noticed a change in me: I wasn't even trying to run from the pain.
This song is my theme song this week, because it is what God has been doing in my heart. He as strengthened me and molded me into a person that I have wanted to be and that reflects Christ: someone who can run into the middle of it all.
However, I would stell covet your prayers. Even when the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak.
