Dat’s Reflections for April 4th, 2020

Immortality might be what we long after although we know that it won’t happen. That longing alone confirms to me that we were originally not created to die. DEATH is bad deal and if we have a choice, we would want it. Yet, here it is, knocking on the door as our days in this earthy life are numbered.

We are, broken men and women, in search for answers for our own brokenness. Somehow in that journey, we might get a chance to experience healing and to bring healing to others. We then realize that it is such an amazing beauty to comfort others in our own woundedness.

So don’t be afraid of that journey as we go through this time of Covid-19 pandemic together. Yes, it will bring pain and I won’t deny it. Yet, we will be able to see through what can be perceived as an unending darkness so that we discover the meaning of bringing comfort to the Suffering.

Here is the prayer I pray as I prepare to deal with the deep darkness of my soul while allowing God to restore others to hope and life through me. It is the journey of a Wounded Healer.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in be any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
