I know there are things I cannot do. I cannot change another's mind. Today I cannot run 100 miles. It will be impossible for me to realize my work goals unless the team pulls together. I cannot be in two places at the same time. Singing from the stage at the Royal Albert Hall or Carnegie is virtually impossible. I cannot save myself from my self.
These are all facts that I know inside and out. The knowledge extends beyond my mind right into and through my heart. For some, this might be discouraging. For me, this is the best news is the world! Having this knowledge frees me to explore partnerships and relationships and will allow me to achieve my dreams.
There is one fact with which I struggle. Although I know with absolute certainty that I cannot earn or qualify myself for a relationship with the Divine, I still find myself working the angles. I pursue God thinking, at least by my actions, that I can walk the steps between. I will, or so I think, be able to bridge the gap. Discipline is always key. Results definitely matter. Fighting for the cause helps. In each attempt and for every assumption, I am totally, absolutely wrong!
Taking the step of admitting my weakness and failure is the key to my future. I know God is key. I also have heart knowledge that God's power, character, and mercy is the only way I will ever be in the Presence, sense the Spirit, and talk with the Father. Knowing this changes everything!
When I first met Cherry I knew that together we could be far more than either of us was or is individually. My gaps filled to over flowing. The experience of walking together gave color and meaning to life. Together I found out who I really was as well as the potential of tomorrow.
“With Lady Wisdom, God formed the Earth; with Madame Insight, he raised Heaven.” (Proverbs 3.19) God created you and I. She is what is missing in your life and mine.
