Running into the Middle of it all5:05 PM
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.
