Life has this incredible way of offering us unlimited opportunities if we will get out of the blindness of our procrastination, open our spiritual eyes and see all that God and His Universe has to offer us.
This year, my younder daughter and I planted some corn. We plowed the ground, dug the holes, planted the tiny kernal of corn, watered it and waitied for nature to do her thing. Before long the seed turned into a blade and broke through the ground looking for the sun up above. Through the days and nights, it grew into a stalk and eventually the stalk grew ears, which we eventually picked off, shucked and silked to reveal a cob full of corn kernals. My daughter proclaimed: “I can’t believe that all of that came from that little kernal (seed) of corn that we planted in the ground???”
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:7-9
This is the way life works! Life is designed so that when it is working the way it is supposed to, it is always creating more of itself. Stop and let that thought sink in. God has created the Universe, so that it is always looking for ways to recreate and heal itself, by setting up opportunities for us to love and be loved.
It does not matter what mistakes you may have made in the past, because the present is always a new beginning with the possibilitiy of something better. Our Creator has arranged time, so that we may learn from the past and grow in the present as we live and love into the future.
The best way I know to make sure that we don’t miss it is by opening ourselves to God’s unconditional love and allowing it to flow into and through our lives, so that we then might be able to share it with others. Let the love flow and see how creation takes care of itself by offering you more than you can dream or imagine…
