Continuing yesterday’s more quiet reflection with a little Sufjan Stevens:
(The artwork in this video is by Chris Koelle.)
This song was first introduced to me when Karis Church sang it during a Good Friday Gathering. Isn’t it hauntingly beautiful?
There are times in our pain when we
finally step out of ourselves,
stop trying to fix things on our own,
stop looking to other things to soothe the ache,
and turn to the One who is the only One capable of handling the pain.
It may feel like God is so distant; but
Don’t wait any longer, turn to God with your hurt today.
Today is Day 19 of 31 Days of Prayer for the Hurting.
