Awareness Of Our Shortcomings That Awaken Us To The Almighty

“Know thyself!”  There is nothing that so aids and assists the awakening of Omniscience within us as insistent thoughts about one’s own transgressions, errors, mistakes… And that is why I turn back to the years of my imprisonment and say,… “Bless you, prison.”… I nourished my soul there.  “Bless you, prison, for having been in my life!" - The Gulag Archipelago.

When we seem to fall and stumble in the eyes of God over and over again, we can often beat ourselves up quite well.  However, there is a hidden treasure in that awareness.   It leads so perfectly, and magnificently, to an awakening, to The Almighty, full of grace and truth, a love so amazing, so divine.  Who is like our God, who forgives sin?
