I deal with two opposing, but undeniable, realities:  I am ageless, but I am getting older; I am completely healed, but I am sometime sick; I will live forever, but I am dying; I am rich, but I am poor; I am a son of God,
but I am a son of man; I am in the spirit, but I am in the flesh; I know all things, but I know nothing as I ought; I love as God, but I am selfish to the core.  In a word, I fully believe and accept my God-given position, but I am at once living an alternate reality.  I am a citizen of two worlds: I walk in the heavens and at once dwell in the earth.  But, I do believe I am in good company with him who said in Rom 7:24-25: O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Some would deny all this.  I don't.  I love the impossibility of it all.  In my Lord I am more than a match for such a puny puzzle.  God is revealing Himself in me, by me, through me, and as me, in this maze we call life on earth.
