As I have previously written, MCS has a huge impact on my life and it's easy to fall prey to despair. But I know from experience that the 12 Steps work and I will benefit from making a concerted effort to apply them to my life. I believe all true answers originate from my spiritual center. Yes, I may be limited physically, but not spiritually.
"Our wound is the place where our soul finds entry into us. The calamity that strikes may be our call to spiritual fulfillment," Ernest Lawrence Rossi has written (5). This process of using a calamity to deepen my relationship with God has worked before with other issues. Therefore, there`s no reason to believe it won`t work again.
The refrain of an old Christian hymn started playing in my mind, "Trust and obey, for there's no other way/To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey." To me, this message means I'm to step into the will of God and follow (no pun intended!).
