I have been pretty sad today and am struggling. I was going to write a post on the Holy Thursday readings, on Passover and on Jesus washing His disciples’ feet but I am having trouble with what to say in reflection on the two readings. I came up with a poem. Didn’t know what to name but here it is.
Today sadness is in the air
I know God is *there*
But the road has been like climbing a mountain
Jesus made the hardest journey of all
Taking the road to Golgotha
In the ultimate act of love
Jesus died on the cross for all of us
Trying to give my pain over to God
In union with Jesus on the Cross
But I’m struggling so bad due to my loss
Some thoughts: The lesson in Exodus 12: 1-8, 11-14 is that God is always there for His people, for those who follow Him. God is there for us when we repent. He is there for us during our troubles. I know this. But for some reason today I feel so empty and down in the dumps today. Part of it may be the medicine I’m on because sometimes I feel like I need to cry but it feels like I can’t cry due to the medicine I’m taking.
