The Recuperation Journey

June 14, 2018

Lord of patience and kindness –

You share in my ups and downs of recovery.
I believe in Your healing mercy,
and in the restoring energies of nature
You have put in my body and spirit.

I see the signs of Your healing love in me,
and joy surges in my heart.
I tell You aloud my thanksgiving
and smile my trust in You.

But You know how changeable I am,
how impatient to be cured.
You let me complain as much as I desire
and assure me that You still are there.

I tire myself out with doubts about
what Your power can do for me,
and You simply repeat,
“Trust Me! Will you trust Me?”
until I finally say, “I will!”

Then, You show me that You are most faithful.
You restore me to full health,
and I go forward rejoicing to follow
You along the road.

- Columban Fr. Joseph Joyce
