Wrestling with God and with Love – Resistance and Surrender within Our Spiritual Journey

What do love and God ask of us? That can be answered in a single word: Surrender. But much inside of us resists, wanting its own way; so goes the journey. Jacob wrestled an entire night with God; the great prophets often said to God, The Will be Changed; Jesus himself sweated blood in Gethsemane, asking God to change his will; and even in our most intimate relationships we resist losing our independence. Our journey in faith and in love is a constant struggle between resistance and surrender. What drives this? What is healthy and what is not? Understanding God, understanding ourselves, understanding our struggle, and understanding love.
