Transition phobia and inertia

If I’m used to holding a child’s hand all day, I could understand how making the transition to holding an adult’s hand for the very first time could feel weird. But perhaps I should get over the transition, and focus on the adult to whom I’m united. Maybe I can adjust to the change by seeing how such adult handholding might feel super weird at first, but is a new act of grace, special and tender in its own unique way, a way that gives unique insight into the tender heart of the Father.

If we’re so stuck on “the way things should be by ‘natural’ design,” our boxy thinking will cause us to miss out on new experiences of grace and blessings.
