Those who think spiritual life is doing things right and in the right order to satisfy a deity, I hate to break the bubble. Spiritual life is patience lived out. Patience with oneself, patience with others, and patience with the world. If not for all the things that go wrong in life, I will never find God. If not for all the things that are not done on time, I will never find perfection. If not for all the things that are broken, I will never find wholeness. If not for my inability to speed up things, do things right, and be the person I really long to be, I will never find how beautiful it is to be broken and be one with those who are broken. We are as good as Christ only and after we are broken to pieces with Christ. It is here I am learning patience. I used to refuse to be broken only to find myself broken even more.
