Breaking Through

I saw two TED talks this morning that had great perspective.  The first was a couple whose child was born without the ability to use his left side.  The moral of their story was to see challenges as opportunities for growth, not problems to be solved.  Then I heard a woman, diagnosed with schizophrenia, who had learned that the voices in her head were ones that she needed to be kind to.  She could listen to what they were telling her in a metaphorical not literal way.  These voices helped her deal with early trauma that she had never been able to deal with before.  They both were incredible ways showing that what we think of as failures or complete breakdowns in reality can actually be moments of breakthrough and grace.  During this Advent, may we be blessed to see the ways God is trying to break through to us.
