Everybody hurts

12.55AM on a Saturday morning. I should be in bed sleeping off the loooong arduous week I've been through. But now my mind is filled with many many thoughts thinking of families. I am thinking of three families in particular who are currently going through a confusing and heart wrenching time.




...are the questions that are on repeat mode in my mind at present.

Hurt is a very complex and fiddly thing to deal with. Because hurt doesn't really want answers. Or resolutions. Or 'fix its'. It just hurts and doesn't know what to do. It hurts to be touched. But yet it feels so alone.

Why does the prodigal son not come home? Why does Israel not turn back? Why does the harlot wife not go back to Hosea? Why can I not say I'm sorry?

The same story repeats again. In history. In people we know. In situations today.

Anger burns. Hurt hurts.

Pride? Shame?

Maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's everything. Maybe I don't know anymore.

Everybody hurts. But don't stay in there too long.
