“On Earth as It Is in Heaven”

I ask myself today how can I inspire in these troubling times. I wonder if anyone has hope enough to listen or faith enough to see. What is faith but the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, at least that’s what it says in Hebrews 11:1. It was the faith of two blind men that opened their eyes to see. As they came before Jesus asking to be healed, he simple said to them, “Do you believe?’ “Yes Lord,” they replied. He touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done onto you.” And their eyes were opened. Matthew 9:27-30.

I think of myself as having a lot of faith. I am where I am today because of the hope and faith I held onto. Yet even when we’ve experienced miracles we can become complacent in our faith. I ask myself, do you have the faith of a mustard seed? That always boggled my mind. That all it takes is a tiny bit of faith to make good things happen in our life. Maybe it was the innocence of a child’s faith that allowed me to believe in what my mature adult self gets in the way of now. Maybe that’s the way we need to look at things…through the hopeful eyes of a child’s faith. Maybe then we can begin to experience all the good that God wants for us. Maybe then what is done on earth…will be as it is in heaven.

“The Key To Happiness”

“One Minute Wisdom”

Why is everyone here so happy except me?

“Because they have learned to see goodness and beauty everywhere,”

Said the Master.

Why don’t I see goodness and beauty everywhere?

“Because you cannot see outside of you

what you fail to see inside.”

By Anthony de Mellow

Being a happy person in a world filled with so much discord is hard work. Not because happiness is difficult to achieve. The hard part is keeping the ugliness from snatching that goodness away from us.

No one can make anyone see what they don’t want to see. However, asking the question why and how is a first step. Than the longing for that understand unlocks the doors within, and the miracles begin to happen. I know that I can’t have one foot in heaven and the other in the world without feeling the divide that it creates, but I can be an instrument in helping Heaven to meet with earth. Everyday I can’t wait to see what God has to show me next, and in turn all I want to do is share that goodness with others.
