God’s call unfolds, a word at a time, slowly.
A disciple is not made in a hurry.
Slowly, I become like the one
to whom I am listening.

Life unfolds, a petal at a time, like us,
becoming followers of Jesus,
discipled into a new way of living
deeply and slowly.

Be patient with life’s unfolding petals.
If you hurry the bud, it withers.
If you hurry life, it limps.

Each unfolding is a teaching,
a movement of grace,
filled with silent pauses,
breathtaking beauty, tears and heartaches.

Life unfolds, a petal at a time, deeply and slowly.

Love releases extraordinary energies in us. The power of love is greater than the power of evil. Still, one of the most difficult things in the world is to love someone who hates you. Yet true love is love of the difficult and the unlovable. Mercy is stronger and more God-like than vengeance.
It is a struggle to overcome the feelings of bitterness and revenge that well up inside us, and can keep welling up, when we are badly treated by another. Forgiveness is never easy. Each day it must be struggled for, and prayed for.
