Peace in Pain

Peace in Pain


There is a gift when we stop running

Even if we just slow to a jog, your Presence is a bit more clear

The main obstacle though is the fear of being overwhelmed by fear

If we are willing to jog, walk, and then be carried

We can rest in You as we view what’s buried

Although it hurts and the pain is like nothing we’ve ever encountered 

You never neglect us or forsake us 

You offer us peace in pain
