“Transformation is hard stuff”

may4-2016-copy-2

Blessings sometimes pop out from surprising corners in our lives, don’t they. Even social media apps might occasionally sound like the voice of God!

A recent case in point from the ‘Your memories on Facebook’ thingy… You know the one?
“… [your name]…, we care about you and the memories that you share here. We thought that you’d like to look back on this post from …. years ago.”

This particular memory was from 2011. And it’s one of those truths that get only truer with time:

“And the work of God is rarely dull, but it’s not always necessarily what we think. Transformation is hard stuff. Seeking to bring about the kingdom of God — caring for the poor, feeding the hungry, visiting prisoners, caring for the sick, renouncing demons in God’s name — you don’t do that in a 15-minute lunch break.”
– Enuma Okoro

Six years later, I’m only more convinced that our journeys of both personal transformation and social transformation are:

unexpectedly
longer,
more darned difficult
and more incredibly exciting,
leading us to places never anticipated.
