‘Pick up your sleeping mat and walk.’

The man could have decided to stay as he was. After all, he had been disabled for 38 years and had become used to the life of a helpless person, dependent on others. He was defined by his illness. People knew him as the man who could not walk. Instead, he picked up his mat and walked away into a totally different life. He had to learn to live independently, to work, to make life choices.

Sea-change and tree-change stories describe people who decide to take charge of their lives. There are inspiring tales of people who stop complaining about hating their jobs and take steps to follow an earlier dream. Some, later in life, respond to a religious vocation.

Jesus, help me not just to exist, but to live fully.
