Every aspect of coming to God helpless is counterintuitive to how our world operates. Yet it is the only true way to encounter God’s grace. According to Peter Scazzero’s powerful book, “Emotionally Healthy Spirituality,” we have to admit the following:
• I am bewildered
• I don’t know what God is doing right now
• I am hurt
• I am angry
• Yes, this is a mystery
• I am very sad right now
• O God, why have You forsaken me?
When we walk through our pain with God, taking no cheap shortcuts, we truly start to become free. We open our hands and something in the very core of us is fundamentally changed. We begin to understand the language of the valley, which enables us to effectively love others as they walk through their hardships.
