Sometimes we find ourselves in jobs, relationships, or situations that inhibit our fullness of life. In these times, something needs to change in order for us to find wholeness again. The God we know in Jesus Christ promises to be with us in our suffering and to lead us through our suffering. Throughout the gospels, we hear about all kinds of people whose lives are transformed by the living power of God. Lepers are healed; the blind are given sight; the imprisoned are set free; the unwanted are named and chosen. Jesus’ love transforms us, too, and empowers us to name and change whatever inhibits our happiness.
