The Winning Side

When we surrender in spiritual matters it means we join the winning side. This is no easy or simple concern. In order to be ready to surrender our interior pain we have to take a serious look at ourselves. It was when I was ready to see that my physical bones were fine but some of my spiritual bones were splintered that I could begin to heal. The point at which I was ready to let other people take my fractured parts and put them on a spiritual assembly line was the point at which I gave myself permission to begin to heal. Those people knew how to help put me back together. All I knew how to do was flail for help. At best.
