What is YOUR Understanding?
On the surface, it’s a simple question, however the answer can become complex. It is a hard question because there are so many different answers that come from so many people, places, and things. The confusion sets in when we try to analyze, compare, and contrast all of the perceptions, opinions, and so called “facts” that others are willing to provide.
I can’t answer this question for you or anyone else for that matter. It’s not because I don’t care, because those that know me, know that I do care very deeply about this. I cannot give you a God of your understanding, and I hope you are not allowing others to force theirs upon you. I will lovingly and unselfishly share my experience, strength, hope, and God with you but… in order to know God you MUST create your own relationship with him, based upon YOUR OWN experience and understanding. I love you all but please check your experience and know that for me, to coin a phrase that has meaning to me:
”Jesus IS the Reason for the Season." Perhaps there is a better way-we think so. For we are now on a different basis of trusting and relying upon God. We trust infinite God rather than our finite selves.” Big Book pg 68
Lord, let us open our hearts and invite You into our lives so that we may know You as well as You know and love each and every one of us, AMEN.
“Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Matthew 16:15
Have a blessed day y’all!
