Who says we can't put a square peg in a round hole? I did it recently, maybe prophetically. Only it was a square-based milk carton I forced gently, paradoxically into a round hole or slot. It was only possible because the carton was soft and flexible. Therein is the key: soft; softness, softheartedness or soft-treadedness if there was such a word. There may be times that require us to so fit. It's not a permanent fit, but for a season and for a specific purpose. If we can adapt and adjust to a wrong-shaped slot, it may be a steppingstone toward the slot that is more suited and even custom-made. (Perfection, remember, is to be suited to a purpose) We may have to "force ourselves" but there is a slow deliberate, gentle way to do it so that no damage is incurred, but only present benefit(s) for ourselves and for others.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
