Is it possible to go to A&E, and ask
For them to patch up your broken heart,
Can they give you some pills to fix
Your loss of faith in God or man?
Or is it just a thing to deal with
On your own, in the privacy of your home
With tears streaming down cheeks
And a pain so severe, you know it will kill.
I was reading a book today and the author mentioned a ‘spiritual injury’ and I absolutely loved that term. My first response was ‘what the hell is that?’ Shortly followed by the thought that everyone must have had one of these injuries before.
And, can we take these injuries seriously?
I’d say that losing your faith in God or even the people you love, is just as serious as a physical injury. A bone can be mended, but the pain from this other type of injuries can be so much more long lasting.
