I have far too many gray hairs. I guess that it is a reflection of age and experience. I know it is not wisdom given my tendency to repeatedly repeat old mistakes. One of the greatest mistakes is, in reality, a simple and natural one. I easily fall into a trap of believing that I am stuck in a, any, situation without power. It is one of the most dangerous assumptions one make because of how one's behavior changes with the conclusion.
In the past two weeks my relationship track record has, frankly, stunk. Bad Bill has shown up far too often! As I examine each failure, working to learn from a reflective post mortem, I find there is a common thread (beyond me of course!). In each relationship there was a point where I concluded I was trapped. My mind said that there were no options. I believed I could no longer trust the processes I held to be true. I had to fight for the right conclusions. My defense was all that stood between success and failure.
I can be a serious idiot at times! We are never alone in our walk. The cry of yesterday is as true today as it was then. “Look! Listen! God's arm is not amputated-he can still save. God's ears are not stopped up-he can still hear.” (Isaiah 59.1) The only question, then and now, is our faith and action. We are the ones that give God's hands their extension. We are the ones that bring God's hearing into reality. God is in relationship with us, trusting the process, allowing us to step up as Divinity's partners.
Being human and making mistakes is redundant. God knows this. For us to admit, acknowledge, and then move into corrective action is at the heart of the power resident within each. God dwells within us. God is part of our lives. As we exercise our faith, God's power changes lives and our souls from the inside out.
Today is a window for grace to live. I will step in and though.
