Wrestling

Have you argued with God lately? Why are things the way they are? God – how can you let this happen? God this is not the direction I want to go. I disagree with what you’re doing. (Like I know better than God.) I’m sorry God, but you must see why I had to do that. God, where ARE you?

If you think God doesn’t welcome wrestling with us, think again. Jacob wrestled with God for a whole night and God blessed him. (Gen 32)

God wants to be in relationship with us and sometimes it’s through our struggles and our cries and unwillingness to let it go, that God does the best transforming of us.

The whole purpose of wrestling with God is to be transformed into the self we were meant to become, to step out of the confines of our false securities and allow our creating God to go on creating. In us. ~ Joan Chittister in Scarred by Struggle, Transformed by Hope

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 a.m. Together we can wrestle with God’s Word and be created anew.

Grace and peace,
Vikki
