The Best Is Yet To Come!

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what God has prepared for those who love him.”     1 Corinthians I need to read that daily, maybe put it on a sticky note on the steering wheel of my car. I need a constant reminder that we are not who we think we are. We are not of this world! The day-to-day responsibilities of this earthly life sometime saturate our minds pulling us into the falsehood that we are human bodies here on earth toting a spiritual soul. And that’s all there is. But just the opposite is true. We are first and foremost children of God. We were made as spiritual souls intended to have this earthly body for a physical existence. Our human bodies serve us as we make our journey, allowing us to learn lessons in the classrooms of joy and adversity. So exactly how does this change anything? I think it helps to put things in the right perspective. Amidst the earthly struggles, adversity, questions and doubts saturating and shaping our mental outlook, we need to remember that God is our father. We are “chips off the old block”! We share the same divine spirit of God. He planted the seed of goodness within each of us. God will never give up on us. That’s what God is like. Looking down upon us, God sees tiny implants of goodness just waiting to grow. God sees all the possibilities and all the gifts we have. God knows we’ve got good “genes.” There is no way God will... read more

Got Patience?

The virtue of patience is not my long suit. Last week I experienced an epi (epidural steroid injection) in my cervical spine. Listening to the instructions I didn’t think a little shot could be that much. After the numbing serum and the interventions sedative, the shot itself wasn’t that bad. What I did encounter was the surprise reaction at my lack of patience when I was out of my comfort zone of not feeling like my old self. I felt impatient with myself, others and probably God if I hadn’t realized that this was a very temporary setback. I was a little woozier than I usually am! Leaving the doctor’s office I had Joe’s steady arm to guide me. I had to clutch the handrail to keep from stumbling down the steps. (I don’t do “dependent” well either.) Once at breakfast I could raise my right arm to a certain height and then it would just drop. I couldn’t pick up my coffee with my right arm without scalding myself. Finding some relief that these setbacks were to last a few hours, I thought of all the times that I have been impatient with others who suffer with all kinds of impairments and some permanently with certain ailments. I berated myself thinking how I take my good health for granted. I mentally apologized for all the times that people failed to meet my time expectations. I reflected on all the times I tapped my toes in the grocery line as older feebler people fumbled paying for their groceries. Or when I lose patience walking behind slower amblers in crowds,... read more

How’s Your Vision?

“Don’t worry about the horse being blind, just load the wagon.” (John Madden) Sometimes we feel like that blind horse making our way, not knowing just where we are going, the whys, and sometimes the real purpose of our lives. Life would be so much easier if we could prepare ourselves for what was coming next. Surely we would make better plans if we were aware of upcoming events. Or, at least be able to endure certain hardships if we knew “why” they came our way. What lesson are we to take away. Life is made up of pop quizzes. Many times we cannot even study or prepare for what is asked of us. We try to make plans, only to adjust and readjust. (Ever feel like the GPS re-routing?) Sure we need a vision, but like the horse we need to plod ever forward pulling whatever load we have. The good news is that we don’t have to have 20/20 vision to find God. God will find us. All we have to do is to respond to his gentle (or sometimes not so gentle) guidance with a grateful and trusting heart. Like the rein on the back of the horse God will lead us in the direction for personal and spiritual perfection. We need to trust and honor that journey that God has in mind for us. We just have to face each day with a strong faith that the good Lord knows what is best for us. It’s not for us to know what is in the mind of God. Sometimes, when I struggle wanting to know... read more
