Nouwen: Needs and Wounds


Wounded heart, damaged soul, beaten spirit.
I amble towards you in the daylight,
But run away, quick into the night.
Wounded heart, damaged soul, beaten spirit.
I stumble towards you spilling blood,
You race to lift me from the mud.
It is very important for us that we recognize how our needs and wounds can be a great source of our suffering and call us to an even fuller surrender to God’s first love – Henri Nouwen
