Reflection for the Week

The trauma of loss can overwhelm us and deplete our strength for embracing life. Our rights, relationality, and stories will not sever us from being suffering selves; a true part of our identity as humans. Thank you Lord that you have covenanted to join us, and now you know the bleak path of desire failing, though in following the will you find your journey never ending, never ending. And so it is: passing through the territory of darkness can seem like an eternity, yet light does slowly appear through the cracks and we emerge scathed, but alive and released.
