“Keeping company with Jesus in the space between wanting to change and not being able to change through effort alone can be a difficult thing to do. Desiring God and not demanding an outcome keeps us in the risky place of waiting and longing……………. so when we find ourselves in the space between desire and demand, when we are waiting on God and nothing seems to be happening, we must remember this space is an OPPORTUNITY (caps mine). IN THE UNFIXABLES OF OUR LIVES WE ARE INVITED TO KEEP COMPANY WITH JESUS AND TAKE A RISK THAT GOD’S INTENTIONS TOWARDS US ARE GOOD (again, caps mine). – p.19, Spiritual Disciplines Handbook-Practices that Transform Us, Adele Ahlberg Calhoun, Intervarsity Press.
