Arppatnely, olny 55 people otu of 100 can raed this. For my own prat, I cdn’uolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to rseearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, is waht is on dipslay hree.
Yuo see, it rllaey dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres wthiin a word are in; the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.
The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but rthaer the word as a wlohe. Azanmig, huh? Yaeh, and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was spospued to be very puipmorantt!
Amazing indeed! And did you catch the explanation? As long as the first and last letters are in order, your brain can read the word, even if the letters in between are all jumbled up.
As I read this, I thought about life. I was blessed to be born. To be is certainly better than not to be! It is a privilege just to be alive and experience all that life has to offer. Of course, along the way, I showed my frailty and shortcomings. And Because of this, I got things more than a little jumbled up.
But, praise God, I have been gloriously redeemed by Jesus Christ, the very Son of my Creator. Because of this, I know I will be blessed beyond measure on that day when the Lord calls me home to Heaven. And the world to come will definitely be far better than anything this present world has to offer!
So, with a good beginning and an even better ending to my life assured, I have decided that it does not ultimately matter what will have befallen me anywhere in the middle. I know that I will make it through to the end just fine. For the One Who has declared Himself the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End of all things, has already read the whole of my life; and He has seen it from the perspective of the whole of eternity.
My prayer, therefore, is that I will increasingly be able to look at life, with all its ups and downs, from God’s perspective, seeing life in its entirety, and from the perspective of eternity. For I know that the more I do this, the more easily will I be able to take the seeming incongruities of daily life. And that will not only make life more bearable, but ultimately, more rewarding.
