Today I have the opportunity to share one bit of feedback on how the corporation views the contribution of the various people working with me. In some ways the process is never fair. How can one describe the work of one individual to another? In other ways the process is never complete. One’s story is never done. Yet the feedback is a statement. For good, bad, or indifference, my words express one view.
I see God through the same eyes. Somehow there is a formula that describes the relationship that exists, however faint, between the Supreme Being and each person on earth. The thought process goes on to suggest, regardless of what my intellect says, that there is a link between this formula and the daily events that mark life. It is almost as if the Divine is scoring our relationship by the things that happen in my life! Some days I am doing well, good days, and on other days the sins of my father and my children as well as my own doings are all piled up together!
When I slow down long enough to read what God has to say I cannot find one shred of evidence to support my intuitive knowledge and assumptions. God just doesn’t seem to look at me that way. There is no daily scorecard, just someone who loves me intensely and continuously. I can find no link between the bad things of life and God’s desire that I know the full impact of my self centered decisions. God only reaches out in a desire to restore me to my full potential. It even falls into His words that can be described as a record of his “prayer”.
John the recorder captures God’s thoughts in clear and concise words. “How blessed the hearers and keepers of these oracle words, all the words written in this book!” (Revelation 1.2)
Today is a fresh opportunity to listen to God. This moment is an “x” in the road where I determine what will be; opportunities and outcomes, all resting in the hand.
