we may be ravaged by the merciless trespass of disease, made febrile by the abiding pain, sheered and weakened by endless treatment. but even then, even then, the Lord rests and finds comfort in us, his dwelling place. we may be hardened by failed relationships, shrunk down and shriveled up by the wrong choices, made ugly by the pain we inflict on ourselves, and on others. but even then, even then, the Lord rests and finds comfort in us, His dwelling place.
and that gives us comfort.
-from We are God's Dwelling Place.(Songs for Healing. Himig Heswita)
