A baseball player's lesson in body perception

Meredith Pagett
Sometimes it can feel like we are locked in constant battle with feelings of limitation and lack—lack of time, energy, balance, beauty, intellect. In other words, a serious lack of perfection. When we limit our ability by applying numbers, distances, wins and losses, weights, and other measurements as references, we fail to realize our spiritual perfection.

If there is one thing I’m learning, it’s that it’s not our ability to achieve, our strength or wisdom that we have to fix, because God has already given each of us these inherent qualities as His children. God made each of us spiritual, not material. We are beautiful, complete, whole, and pure from the beginning. 

The thing that often needs to be changed, though, is our perception, our perception of perfection’s true meaning. I’d like to share a story of when my perception needed to shift.
