Have you ever had that feeling that everything was spiraling out of control and that circumstances were conspiring so quickly against you that appeared there was no solution to the difficulties you were enduring?
I often think sometimes you just have to go into free-fall before you can make sense of the situation you find yourself in. Occasionally there is no solution to the problem and you just have to accept the situation has it is.
In this weeks Gospel, Luke 7:11-17 Jesus raises a widows son from the dead.
The key to the Gospel’s message for me was Jesus showed compassion for the widow over the death of her son. The healing occurred not because Jesus wanted to display his power but his love for others.
The message for me is no matter the situation and the improbability of a solution the important thing is to maintain your dignity and keep everything in perspective otherwise everything will continue to spiral out of control.
