If we persist

What you have exists in the present, but what you hope for exists only in the future.*
(Erwin McManus)

We’re only as much as what we can give to others.**
(Hugh Macleod)

Faith may sound like a religious word, but it isn’t.

It’s definitely human, the ability to see something that exists in the future and to bring that future into the present.

As I’m pondering it today, to see who we can be and what we can make happen.

We can often make things complicated (“I don’t want to talk about it; it’s complicated”) but this will ask us to move into complexity: connecting to one another and to the world and universe and, yes, ourselves. Because after doing all the interconnecting with everything around us, we are not the same people.

It will not be easy, it may take a lifetime: we must persist.

Don’t give up becoming.

It’s worth everything.
