There are days when I feel immobilized by all the pain in this world.......Days when I wonder where God is, where hope is to be found, when relief will come.......I’ve lived long enough to see too much ugliness, too much suffering, way too much.......I sometimes try cutting myself off from news sources. And that helps for a while, at least until reality intervenes at some other point in my life. You can only hide for so long, it seems.......then it all comes out:
through this massive overwhelm,
comes an urgency deep in my soul,
tears within the tears,
knots wrapping around the knots within my heart.
Where are you?
How could you allow these things?
It is just too much for me to bear!
These are the words that rise, the only words that seem to be appropriate in the midst of all that we see going on around us today.......These are the words of lament.
