Resistance

This meditation comes from Anam Cara Ministries, lightly adapted. Questions for reflection are included in the italicized text.

The reassuring thing about resistance is the fact that it means we’re pressing up against something. We are not floating aimlessly in a vacuum, but brushing up against something solid – and God is in that something, whatever it may be. There may be pain there, but there is also treasure.

Read and reflect, then, draw the a wall (or some other structure that seems to represent a resistance you’re feeling right now). Where are you in relation to the wall? What’s on the other side? Where is God? Draw or journal all these pieces in, then spend some time looking at what you’ve created. What prayer emerges?
