Those who are mature understand that their present predicament is perfect.
The insightful understand this.
The fix that I am in is the one that will fix me.
God does not throw fast and slow pitches at us so that we can smack them out of the park. Instead, it seems that all we see are sliders, curves, knuckleballs, and sinkers. And once in a while he even hits us with the ball. (see Job). And for some reason out of the blue, he occasionally, intentionally walks us.
Life is not soft pitches. Life’s pitches are hard to hit………but they are exactly what we need.
The clever honor their present predicament as perfect.
