But the great thing is that God gives us so many opportunities of responding to his ever-present love. To be able to come through or to be carried through, the Gethsemane of things which make what was once seemingly impossible, possible, is part of the gist of what it means to be a sharer in what Resurrection means. It’s the end of promoting the phoney self and the shallow living out of half a life- it’s about a new sort of space to grow in.
