“You are going to die. There is no question about that. The question is are you going to live?”
Been working this medical transport thing for 3 months.
Poor health is a heavy cross.
Poverty exacerbates the misery.
These people live with both daily.
I work with them 8 hours a day.
I am reluctant to share this experience. We all have our share of problems. Right?
However, there is an attribute that many of these people share. A way of coping.
It surprised me and maybe you too will be startled by this mechanism.
In their words – “I’ve given my problems to the Lord. Let him deal with them”
And, quite frankly, I don’t know how to wrap my brain around that.
I mean, how is that a simple act can alleviate the pain and misery these people cope with daily?
Sometimes the body is unfathomable. So too the mind.
