The Wounded Soul




The Wounded Soul

Ashamed of their open wound
Turning away
Some among us
Feel leprous
Decay

Broken in spirit
Sobbing at heart
Fighting a battle
They don’t understand
Strangers
In a strange land

Oh God
Go with them
Let them never give up
Encourage them with peace
Help them go on

They need only you
Be their song
Fill them with hope
Tell them that to you
They truly belong

Weird Drama



                             Weird Drama


A few years ago, while at a church function, I saw something written on a ball cap worn by a middle-aged man. It said, “The more people I meet the more I like my truck.”

And, recently I heard a TV interview in which a teenage girl who was hiking with a small group in a designated wilderness area, said that out there, her problems were much more basic, and there was no “Weird Drama.” I think there’s a sermon in there somewhere.

Jesus of Nazareth stuck with us until the end, taking our all our “Weird drama,” with Him when He died. That darkness inside that makes life so hard.

Then He came back without it.

It’s our turn to stick with Him now.
