I’ve heard it said many times the longest journey is the one from your head to your heart.
I’m so glad I was born with so many defects; learning disabilities (back in my time it was just classified as a “Problem Child”), heart defects which kept me from participating in many things growing up and probably the most important defect my addiction. Today all of these are classified as diseases. I still refer to them as defects of the body.
These defects kept me humble. God was looking out for me.
But I certainly didn’t see it that way all the time. And trying to understand why all the things that happened to me in my life kept me earthbound….so to say.
Once I was able to Let Go and Let God into my life and be able to see how these very things that I thought of as anchors keeping me down actually were gifts to help me understand or better said accept His workings in my life.
The people who have the hardest time experiencing God’s love is those who think about it, try to figure it out, those who have had all kinds of accomplishments in life and think its all due to them and their hard work.
Forgetting about the one who gave them the ability to do all they have accomplished. Of course, that’s not all intelligent people.
We all understand that human intelligence is limited. Although we certainly are always trying to achieve more, which is good…but we will always be limited when we try to understand it All with our limited senses and intellect.
I’ll ask the simple question which is both the question and answer to it….
How can the limited understand the Unlimited?
