When Your Spirit Wants to Wrestle

Maybe you are feeling as if your safety net has holes in it, and the fabric of your life is frayed beyond repair.

Don’t settle for platitudes, or easy answers.

Wait as long as it takes for understanding, for revelation to cast some light on your darkness.

This is your time for digging deep, for tunnelling far beneath the level you were finding so comfortable.

Your spirit wants to wrestle, so go ahead and fight. And if you fear you are fighting for your life, be assured that you are.

You have a whole new life awaiting you, and this is necessary so that you can learn what you need to know in order to live it effectively.


Frayed 2

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.
………~ August Wilson


About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
