Staying with your wounds

As I enter into my retreat, I feel grateful for the opportunity to have an 8 day silent retreat in the yearly planner. Surely, it is difficult to enter after a hectic working time, where we are more interested in doing and a retreat is time for being.

This year, I just finished with my counseling course. Though it was little too hectic, along with the skills for the counseling it provided, it made me aware of the psychological wounds which I need to heal.  Thus retreat is a good time to be silently sitting before the Lord, asking for that grace of healing. 

The process of healing is a dull and painful process. This is possibly the most dull reality of the retreat this year, but a beautiful grace and gift to achieve too. I pray for patience that I can passively wait for the Lord to come and take charge of my situation.
