we get better

this particular moment comes back to me now, on this day for some reason. i was driving home for Christmas listening to one of my favorite WW episodes when a particular scene struck me in a certain way for the first time:

Josh
So this is gonna be my reaction every time I hear music?

Stanley
(with a chuckle) No.

Josh
Why not?

Stanley
Because we get better.

Whatever the wounds of the past or the state of the present, the wonderful promise and beautiful hope for each of us is that we get better.

My prayer for you is that in your pain, whatever it may be, you will find healing, if only in small steps, and that with each step, you will draw closer to the eternal healing of God almighty.
