Glossary of Heart: Management vs. Mystery

Management is an attempt to control life in order to stay safe and to make sure that outcomes we planned or predicted actually happen. When we manage a relationship, we prevent it from being an adventure, a joy, a surprise, and a gift.

Mystery is a willingness of heart to experience living truthfully and believe that we will find goodness in it. Living in mystery means walking in the faith that God is big enough to be in control, and that God doesn’t require our help to get the job done.

This Glossary of Heart presents a daily choice for us. The first option keeps us where we are. The second option takes us on a journey into our hearts. It’s the hardest yet most courageous choice we can make. I hope you take the risk.
