imagine the possibilities

Sometimes I have a hard time believing that God made us in His image… When I look around at all the small-mindedness and suffering humans  swim around in, I wonder – are we just a bad copy of a copy of a copy, a Multiplicity gone wrong to the tenth degree?

Then my imagination pulls the emergency brake on that train of thought…

Because I imagine people being so much better than they currently are. I  imagine change and growth, and stingy hearts growing three sizes bigger… I imagine injustices being set right, and funds released to help the poverty-stricken. I imagine forgiveness flowing in impossible situations.

I imagine all those things because I have smelled them and felt them and watched them happen.  I know they will happen again.

And when I imagine change, and see change, and help make change happen – I know I am not the only one doing it…

Which tells me YES – we are made in God’s image.

Let’s live like it.

  1. I concur. I’ve wondered so many times. When people are hurt, the injustice as you mentioned, that is seen DAILY – Ouch 😥

    But I’m so grateful that I can look back at The Truth and Know beyond KNOW that, yes, we were created in His image. And I must remember that feelings/emotions will almost alwas betray me.

    Great post! Love how the words just glide together.
