<靠近傷心的人> 7/27-8/2/15

 

“耶和華靠近傷心的人,拯救靈性痛悔的人。” 詩篇34:18
 
默想禱告: 她用手揉成一小圑的紙巾,輕輕點擦著眼角沁出的涙水,斷斷續續地向我説她面臨的困境。
 
如果居留身份不是她所關注的問題, 我不明白她要來預約找我諮詢的原意。
 
既然老遠坐車到曼哈頓古舊窄巷的中國城, 我不大願意草草結束面談, 於是放鬆自己, 安静地聆聽她訴説一段又一段剪不斷的落拓生涯。
 
還好她節制口舌, 只集中述説她最近十年坎坷的嵗月,否則以她七十高齡, 積存满腹的苦水肯定會瞬間决堤溢出, 一發不可收拾。
 
然而過去短短的十年中, 她早己屢次經歷因搞身份被詐騙的慘痛,辛苦幹活而囤積的錢一次又一次被騙取; 不久丈夫患老人癡呆, 鬧情緒將她趕走,從此只好租了一間窄小的房間獨居。
 
她不時拿下眼鏡擦眼, 還自我調侃說: “最近我對光特別敏感, 眼睛容易發紅。”
 
兒女早就移居加拿大, 她不想成為他們的拖累, 於是找些臨時工熬下去, 收入微薄但仍每年按時報税, 她有信心達到十年工齡領取老人醫療保險的資格, 使我對這位長者堅忍和守法的態度十分敬重。
 
“你甚麼時候再來, 我喜歡跟您聊聊天!” 她認真地看著我。
 
我的心這時暗暗在笑:“大部份時間都是你在說話, 我連插嘴的份也沒有呢!”
 
“我每個月可能只來一兩次, 但有一位我想介紹給您認識的, 他每時每刻都願意聽您說話, 您想認識他嗎?”我於是把握時機, 把耶穌介紹了給她。
 
現今時代想找個人聽你說話真不容易, 講講天氣, 那家館子好吃還勉強可以搭上幾句, 但想要向對方吐吐苦水, 說說心底話就很快會彼此敬而遠之, 各走各路了。恍惚每個“封閉” 的心靈自我防禦性地築上一道火牆,並栓上深鎖, 不輕易讓人窺探, 深怕自己和別人一同被灼傷。
 
唯獨主耶穌“他醫好傷心的人,裹好他們的傷處。”詩篇 147:3 
 
聯想她經歷過多少個難眠的黑夜, 難以傾訴的遭遇, 和內心深處的斲傷; 唯有主耶穌能為她醫治纏裹, 她需要的不僅是人言語上的安慰, 更需要的乃是神的大愛滋潤她久已枯乾的心靈。
 
因此當我結束為她祝福禱告, 抬起頭, 仍然看見她低著頭, 嘴唇在輕輕蠕動, 隱約感受到一顆被激盪的心靈在欣喜中歡然跳躍, 祈願她敞開曾經一度封閉的心門,接受能改變生命的福音, 感謝禱告奉主耶穌聖名, 阿們。(陳熾弟兄分享)
 
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
(Psalms 34:18)
 
The second appointment at the Manhattan Immigrant Services Outpost, I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of uncontrolled emotions emitted by an elderly Chinese lady in her 70s, as though the floodgate was opened, spilling out an enormous amount of bitterness of her miserable conditions.
 
A victim of immigrant fraud perpetrated by unlawful practitioners who scammed her hard earning savings and ended up nothing, she continued to suffer emotional trauma inflicted by her own demented husband, while living in a deplorable condition in solitude.
 
Trying to be a good listener is harder than I thought after hearing an hour of excessive monologue, I finally invited her to pray with me, witnessing to her that there is a God who doesn’t sleep, always lends Himself an empathetic ear 24/7, and “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” (Psalms 147:3)
 
Amazingly, I saw her lips moved and her head bowed after I finished my prayer.
 
How much I wish she would truly accept Christ and find a wonderful listener and healer far more effective than a therapist. Indeed “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want!” Amen.
