When Suffering Comes from an Angle you Never Expected.

All transformation comes through the pathways of love and suffering. The most amazing thing about Jesus is that he taught us that God and change are to be found in mess, darkness, weakness, imperfection and disorder. While you are cowering in a dark valley it is impossible to understand what is happening to you. You have to trust the darkness and wait. Light is a gift that suffering leaves behind. Out of the cold hard winter ground a new springtime of possibilities begin to arise.

Broken People Have a Head Start

Pain, darkness and discomfort are the vehicles or portals that are used to transform us. This society rejects pain, rejects discomfort, rejects the unlovely and the unloveable. This is why I love the broken and the poor of spirit because they are open and accepting. They cannot resort to an easy fix. They cannot pretend that they are not broken, battered and bereaved. They know that they are a mess and they know that they need help. This is humility.
