The image of the bridge with two brick towers came to me in a dream. What did it did not come with was an explanation. I presumed that as a spending plan (budget is too painful a word to use) has two parts i.e. what comes in and what goes out, I presumed that this was what it was supposed to represent.
I had virtually written the book when I was doing the research for something else and I had a revelation. I realized that there were two strong and secure towers or structures that I needed to have in my life if I was going to achieve all that I could achieve.
One of those towers is what I call my inner core. This is what I call the inner strength that comes from knowing our value, our identity and our purpose. It is strengthened by being accepted and expressing gratitude for what I have and am.
The other is linked to the children’s Sunday School song about running into a strong tower. The idea being that having a relationship with God is like having a strong tower that we can shelter in when things are not what they should be around us. It is also a place where we can spend time gathering wisdom and inspiration that will help us do what we are supposed to do. Not forgetting the ideas and wisdom that makes it so much easier to overcome obstacles and manage challenges.
If we are secure and know that we can have all our needs met we will be able to stop the fighting and struggling. It is then possible to be know a contentment and peace that is beyond understanding.
