I went through the labyrinth again this morning. It was easier this time. My guard was down.
I found that I am applying pressure (sometimes subtle and sometimes not) to change that which I do not like. Pressure to change my circumstances. But pressure in this case doesn't change. It breaks. It splinters. It makes a bigger mess.
There is another option. God offers healing grace. We are instruments of the grace of God. We are healers. It is not easy. It is very messy. It can be painful for both them and us. But it is the only real option for change... of myself... and others.
