Molecular God who abides in my veins,
As the words spill from the doctor’s mouth
Of a new diagnosis,
Of a new reality,
Of a new normal,
Hold steady my shaking soul.
There are words now for the pain I’ve been feeling,
And I’m happy that it’s finally not “all in my head.”
Yet now it’s real.
Now I really must face this.
Now I must see that this body of mine is finite
And admit I will not live forever.
May good days be good, and may they be plentiful.
May bad days be few and far between.
May medicines work.
May side effects be rare.
And may the aches not distract me from your presence.
A truly blessing prayer that I will share with many. As this is on your blog, I am not sure whether this is a resource to share or a personal situation reflected upon. wishing you great and holy tenderness in either instance.
It’s a personal situation but also a piece in which I hope someone else will find some comfort. So definitely a piece to share. Thanks for all of your support, Maren!
Thank you. And wishing you grace living with your new diagnosis.
