“Can God Make Mistakes”


I’m thinking about the Wizard of Oz again. How the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion and Dorothy all wanted something they thought they didn’t have. I remember feeling that way as a kid. As if when I was being created by God. He forgot to give me something that everyone else seemed to have. I’d picture myself of the conveyer belt in the factory of heaven. The only way that I could have slipped past God was because someone else who had a very important prayer request that needed answered. As He turned away in that moment, I rolled out of the chute with all the other souls. How would He ever recognize me when He never laid eyes on me?

I came to understand later that God doesn’t make mistakes. How can He? He’s perfect, all-knowing, and all encompassing, right? I believe that! At the end of the Wizard of Oz all four character’s realized as I did that everything we need has been right inside us all along. Their lack of knowing, as mine, was part of our journey because sometimes to truly understand what it means to have; we have to know what it feels like to think we don’t have it.

Once I came to the end of that road, a whole new world opened up for me. As I stepped across this threshold of knowing onto my new path, it became an adventure of self-discovery. I had never been alone in my walk, but now I felt the connection of God in a way I’d never recognized before. Sometimes it still feels as scary as the paths along the yellow brick road. That’s always my indication that my plug has been disconnect from my source of life. There’s not been many duel moments since then. Lots of ups and downs, but with each new adventure I’ve learned many wonderful things about who I am and how I’ve been created. Coming into my true self only remains clear when I return to the connection that makes me “Whole.”
