    Herbs for Healing

    Herbs for Healing
    August 16, 2015 Hazel Parsons

    It is all such a worry, Lord,
    Such a worry.
    Is there no safe place in this world?
    Nowhere to go
    Away from danger?

    The beach- a place of relaxation
    Turned into a bloodbath;
    The quiet village
    Invaded and children abducted;
    The ancient cities, ruins already I know,
    Despoiled, the past eradicated;
    The fields bare for the rains have not come;
    The field flooded for there is too much rain;
    The sun scorching;
    The wind scouring….

    O Lord our God
    Where are you?
    So the prophets and the psalmists cried
    Long, long ago;
    Their cries echo down the years.
    Like them our words of anguish must needs
    Answer with our trust
    Our faith
    Our belief in you,
    Our merciful God.

    You heard our cries and sent Jesus.
    His hands healed and comforted,
    He had compassion on the sinner
    And the weak,
    He loved and loved
    Revealing the depth and breadth
    The height and infinite measure
    Of that Love.

    We are a part of
    What we have learned to call
    Our broken world,
    So use us
    To touch tenderly,
    To speak compassionately,
    To go readily,
    To accept your sending
    That we may be as healing herbs
    In a hurting world.
    For the sake of Jesus
    And in the power of his Spirit
    Amen                              Hazel Parsons
