Embracing and Embodying Inconvenience

child wonder

“There are no boring subjects, only disinterested minds.” -G. K. Chesterton

.

“He wants a child’s heart, but a grownup head” – C.S.Lewis

.

So I turned my mind to understand, to investigate and to search out wisdom and the scheme of things….

 

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”(Ecc.3:11)

 

There’s beauty even in chaos, it just takes perspective. Sometimes it takes time for the fog to clear. Nevertheless, we should never lose the wonder of optimism, the child, the better part of ourselves that sees the adventure in inconvenience. Never let discomfort go to waste. When we grow to expect blessings out of all things we welcome inconvenience knowing discomfort locates spaces untraveled or least visited in ourselves. “why do I feel the way I do about this person/situation/circumstance?”, “What’s the real problem?” and “How can I be the solution.” We were not made to just conceptualize and understand truth, but to actually embody it.

 

Lean into the problem conceptually and emotionally, find the solution spiritually and walk in it physically (be it). Thus, you can share solutions to problems not just because you read something about it, or remembered a lesson from way back, but you can speak in confidence from your very existence. The concept springs from your nature (inside out) and you become it and naturally exude it as you grow in deeper revelation of it. You grow because you choose to welcome inconvenience with wonder and not run from it or numb it superficially. When inconvenience grows you, everything truly works for your good and we can believe and testify from our existence that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corin.2:9)

Embrace inconvenience and allow the solution within to solve the problem through you.

Perspective: Where are you looking from?
