I will fear no evil,
for you are with me. Psalm 23
Such a simple phrase and so easy to say but Oh so very difficult to put into practice. Each time I contact my sister to get updates on my young nephew in ICU my heart feels like it is being squeezed tight and all the world around blurs together in one dizzying swirl.
I am angry and want to protect my little sister from this terrible evil, how dare it come into her home! We are all praying for his recovery and hoping for good news but in the meantime the waiting is awful. And then nasty words I don’t want to even mention like anomaly and cancer start getting thrown around and how on earth is one meant to accept those?
Forget about goodness and love following one all our days, right now our only constant companion is the phone. It was the same when my Dad went missing years ago. The waiting game is the worst part. Every little moment is spent with one ear listening for a message or a call.
Well I give up, I hate this game and I don’t want to play it anymore.
Please can we skip right to the end of it all now where ‘God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’?
