Some Comfort Along the Way

In the book “Divine Providence”, Emanuel Swedenborg makes the following observation.  “We need to realize that God knows the kind of person we are and the kind person we want to be.”  A comforting thought.

God’s foreknowledge is far richer I believe than what we imagine.  He does know our path. He knows the choices we will make.  We of course have agency – we do the choosing.  However within that context, God knows the deepest of self identity.  Within the confines of His divine providence, He will place before us the opportunities to move towards what we truly want to become.

No doubt this process may never reach full fruition in this life.  That however does not mean that God will not plant the seeds along the way that we are open to nurture as we come more and more into our true selves, more and more into a life where the inner self and the outer self weave together in complimentary fashion.

Our job, in one sense, may come back to simply giving into the trust that there is a Knower holding us gently, seeking to move us more and more towards the blessedness of who we really are.
