When Something Inside You Dies, Do You Know How to Renew Your Life?



From Denny: How often do we witness a broken spirit? How often do we do anything about it? While we cannot always fix what's broken in an instant, we can pray for them while they go through the process of healing themselves.

What is rarely talked about in spiritual groups is that often a belief system must be shattered before new information can be received to help the person enlarge their vision to develop a new belief system. People who are not growing or highly resistant to growth often experience extreme catastrophes in their lives because their inner world is far too small to process real spiritual development.

While they lament difficult things happening to them, what they will one day realize is that those same awful situations made it possible for them to break out of their confining egg shells like a baby chicken into the new world. Change is not always a negative. Sometimes, we do have to experience ugly negatives to get to the peaceful positives.
