What just happened? My body is not the same as it was before. I’m angry. I’m hurt. And I’m scared of what this means. Is this my new normal? Will my health be forever changed? Will I lose a part of myself? Or maybe I brought this on myself? Maybe I have not been grateful for my abilities and health? I just don’t know. I know I want to be better. I know healing comes in many forms.
Blessing after an Injury
God, source of healing and strength, mender of wounds, physical and emotional. Steady my heart, help me remain calm and patient. Help me discern my fears and anxieties, so I can focus on my progress and not my weakness. Lift up my spirit, so I may lift up myself, and say, I want to feel better. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
