“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen

God is the source of everything. He cares about the smallest details of our lives and wants to walk through our greatest triumphs and be there for our biggest ordeals. Joy and peace can only be found with Him. It is possible to be so in tune with Him, so filled and so full that we get to be used to fill others. We can be part of the healing process.
