Walking Beside

While rummaging through my desk the other day, trying to make sense of stacks of papers, I found the following note that encouraged me.  I trust you will find it helpful as well.

It was entitled "Walking Beside the Weak & Wounded".

The anonymous writer wrote:

"I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see.
I sought my God, but my God eluded me.
I sought my brother, and I found all three."

Something to think about...

  1. The anonymous writer is expressing deep seeded rejection, either from personal experience or simply because it all rhymes. The second line is the embroiled one. "I sought my God, but my God eluded me." God has never eluded anyone. We elude Him. Elude means to escape from, or baffled. God is not either of these, but many will do this to God. The last line expresses that he found his brother, his soul and God. God never left Him, as he stated that he sought "HIS"- Walking beside the Weak and Wounded is a sad thing. Just think of how sad and wounded Jesus is about how we treat Him after all he has done for us. Basking in the glory of His love,whilst keeping Him all to our selfish selves,often playing the martyr, while He's the true martyr. Fearful & embarrassed of spreading the good news, We're to be strong in Him alone, never weak. Something to think about..
