That is why we must let go and let God. Without God’s guidance, wisdom, grace, mercy, forgiveness, patience, love, understanding, acceptance etc… we cannot all come together in the Body of Christ. The individual strings in mini-blinds can represent “us” in a relationship if pulled separately, God “with us and in us” if pulled together, When we pull strings alone without God, when we attempt to control that which is out of our control, things can become off kilter for those around us. If we only pull on the left string, some people stick together and feel close, but the consequence of pulling that string alone on the left leaves everyone on the right distant, confused and erratic. Resentment can build; frustration can mount until eventually those on the right yank on the right string hard enough to pull things back their direction. So, the right end of the blinds then come together temporarily while the left ends suddenly separate wildly before any of the wood slats know what happened.
This see saw effect can go on forever in life as well unless someone makes the first step to let God pull the strings for us. When this happens, the blinds of life go up evenly and we can see what is outside and inside our Windows of Life with perfect clarity.
