Breast cancer, mastectomy,, pain, Prayer

I heard the voice of God

I heard the voice of God announce:
Tell the people they are blind
If they do not see my body 
In the earth, and in mankind. 

I heard the voice of God declare:
Tell the people they are deaf
If they do not hear my anguish
In the cries of the bereft.

I heard the voice of God proclaim:
Tell the people they are lame
If they do not walk with me,
Nor venerate my holy name.

I heard the voice of God insist:
Tell the people they are dumb
If they do not spread the Gospel
Brought from heaven by my Son.  

I heard the voice of God exclaim:
Tell them all they live in vain
If they do not know my presence
In their own, and other’s, pain. 

 

Reference

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy (Isaiah 35:5-6; RSV).
