The way to new life is through the struggle…not around it.
(Listen to my song “Make Your Way” on YouTube by clicking HERE)
Let the groaning of the imprisoned come in before you; in accord with the greatness of your arm preserve those doomed to die.
Life is not easy.
It will hand you difficulties. That is a certainty.
Those struggles can end up being your greatest teachers…if you allow them to be.
The key word is “allow”.
First, we have to accept the is-ness of the moment.
You’ve heard the saying, “It is what it is.”
That doesn’t mean you can’t work to change a situation…but there is a needed acceptance of what is.
When you oppose and rail against what is…you create suffering for yourself and others.
There is and will be pain in life.
Bring that pain to the One who is always with you.
Be with the pains and struggles and allow a Higher Power to lead you through it.
Jesus showed us that even the worst scenario…a crucifixion…can lead to a transformed, new life.
Gaze upon Jesus on the cross…arms stretched open in solidarity with you and all the suffering in the world.
Trust that transformation is ahead.
Death is not the end. Love will be victorious.
