Spiritual Transformation – When You’re Knocked Down
You’re not called to change for the sake of changing. Nor are you called to change just because you’re undergoing some form of oppressive suffering. While change is a reality of life, it’s not necessarily the guiding light to take you to a better place. Sometimes when you’re broken into pieces, it’s better to wait before you react. Sometimes it’s just as important to develop the skill of what it means to wait in order to realize the state of well-being.
Nonetheless, it seems like change is forced upon many of us, knocking us down to the canvas of life. Do you feel it? Are you part of the growing brokenness of this world? Are your dreams completely annihilated? Or your marriage irreparably damaged? Perhaps your health has fallen prey to chronic pain or terminal illness? Or you’re addicted to drugs, pornography and spending? Or you’ve simply given up, as you’ve become part of the American epidemic, eating yourself into oblivion and becoming unrecognizable about your true self?
You’re not alone. Injustice, conflict and suffering can be found throughout several individual life stories. In fact, as the relational tragedies continue to grow so do the complexity of problems, many for which we do not have immediate solutions. Even though we assimilate additional knowledge through emerging technologies, I still wonder if we’re missing another aspect about being severely wounded. Perhaps it’s just as prudent to embrace the full meaning with what has happened to us, as this common link about our brokenness, I firmly believe, will actually lead us on the true path of self-discovery.
