Recently, I was re-reading parts of Jim Palmer's book "Wide Open Spaces" and on page 55, I found this little gem.
"I also observed that all elements of nature fulfill their rightful place by simply being what they are. Trees don't aspire to be fish. They don't even aspire to be better trees. God was saying to me I could experience my rightful place in creation by simply being who he made me to be. This is another one of the most significant discoveries I've come to concerning life in God: life is not about becoming something I'm currently not, but instead being at every moment who I already fully am."
It really is simple yet religion has so infected this new life in Christ that what was meant to be so simple that even a child could do it now has become complex and extremely difficult to live up to.
