I felt an irritation and kept scratching as if something had bitten me, and there was nothing. I then discovered it was internal as if there was a thorn or bramble inside me. Paul in the bible came to thought as I’d understood he’d had a pain in his side, throughout his life. He was a man who felt deeply about everything but eventually felt God’s power which changed his life. I realised that I needed to do more than feel for the people in Israel and Gaza where the war had just broken out. I had to know that God’s love and supreme power of only good was governing everyone whatever horrific reports were being reported. I had to feel the warmth and peace of that love and know it was the spiritual reality. A statement I love came to thought “Pain is the urge of God for fuller expression.” I saw that truth was all that was going on for me and everyone. All the irritation and pain left me and I realised I was free.
