A Healing Presence

(Borrowed from Allie’s Blog)

This morning I held a woman’s hand as she cried. As she spoke of her troubles, losses, pains, and fears I held her hand.

To be a healing presence is humbling, transforming, and awe inspiring. To be a healing presence is a privilege, a blessing from God. For in these moments–in these opportunities for healing–we can know and feel God working through us.

Vocational discernment is an important element of my YAV year. The process is just beginning and I do not know what is next. I do know that I long to serve God by be a healing presence–in the lives of children and adults, in the life of the church, and the community.
