Archives: the imperfect relationship

I had a really interesting thought tonight, and I thought I should write about it, despite it being something pretty personal, so here goes.  I’ll actually quote almost verbatim an excerpt from my journal:

I was saying a prayer tonight, and just suddenly the thought occurs to me that it is so amazing that in our raw, imperfect, mortal form here on earth, that it’s possible to even create a relationship with Heavenly Father.  That is just so cool.  It really takes some work, but even with just a little bit, you can recognize how He feels about you and your current condition and path that you are on.

That’s so amazing to me that its possible, because of *all* the things we have yet to learn and do in the eternities for our progression, it’s possible to create a real, recognizable connection with God right now; that we have the capacity to do that is, again, amazing.

I’m sure that, compared to how things can be in a more perfect form it’s probably not much that we achieve here, but you can still create a relationship that is as real and fulfilling as anything else here on Earth, and moreso, I imagine (mine isn’t *that* strong, but I certainly can’t deny it’s there).  Amazing stuff, I’m really thankful for that. 🙂
