Fall Apart or Become Whole

I’m reading a beautiful book right now called Barking to the Choir by Father Gregory Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries. Homeboy is the largest gang rehabilitation program in the world. It’s smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles.

If you visit Homeboy, there’s a good chance you’ll be ushered into Father G’s office for a visit. He’s that kind of soul. The homies call him “G” and they love him deeply.

I came across a quote that arrested me.

 

“Now could be the moment when we fall apart or we become whole.”

 

Over this past year, I had many moments where I wanted to fall apart. Sometimes, I did! There has been much “death” and loss as I pursue health, wholeness, and face my freaking dysfunction, aka codependency. Yet, there is an OR. “Or we become whole.” There is a choice.

I choose to become whole, whatever it takes. It’ll take a lifetime, I am sure. There is hope for change.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
