The String

In my mind our souls look like filaments that are either wound tightly and hidden at the core of our being, or wrapped around us like a shield, or gently unraveling so as to make contact with the life that surrounds us. Our souls reach out and connect us to our parents, our children, our brothers and sisters, husbands, wives and friends… It can connect us to people we don’t know and may never meet, people we’ve never seen with our eyes- connect us to every single living thing on earth and beyond. 

“As Jesus is, so are we in this world. ” 1 John 4:17

We haven’t even begun to tap even the barest hint of what that means. 

There are just so many things that are impossible to grasp, in some moments more so than others- but it makes me feel good to know that I already have the power to grasp the impossible. I’m just learning how.
