Grace

grace

Ehipassiko means come and see. Come and see for yourself.  Come and see the goodness of God. Come and see for yourself; not because it was what someone else told you, but because you have first-hand experience. Truth exists in the value it brings to you. “The moment we ask the question is the moment the miracle happens. The answer comes with the question. The miracle comes with the asking.”

Déjà vu feels like we’ve already been somewhere, done something. Déjà forward is remembering what our heart already knows in the future. “Be kind to yourself today. You are doing the hard work of creating your tomorrow.”

Physical lack reveals spiritual deficiency. What we do not have, frees us to concentrate on our blessings.

You say, “I need to believe again. I don’t want to be broken anymore. Healing is within my reach.” But how? 

  1. Be gentle. Treat yourself well. Don’t worry; the important things will get done. Look at what you’ve accomplished. Accept and love yourself just as you are.”
  1. Let go of the past. Let go of the future. Let go of the present. With a heart that is free, cross over to that shore that is beyond suffering. Close your eyes and breathe.
  1. Clean the house. Exchange gifts of fruits and nuts. Set off fireworks.
  1. Choose Grace. When you choose Grace, Grace chooses you.
  1. Keep running. Cross that finish line. Stay the path. It will lead you home.

Remember, there is nowhere God isn’t. So, make your life a prayer, and live your meditation. The impossible is far more possible than you know.
