Kingdom of Heaven
So often the curriculum of our lives looks more like hell than heaven. We begin to wonder how life would be different if a certain situation was not happening and we are convinced that this can’t be what Jesus had in mind when he talked about the Kingdom of Heaven.
But to reject the event or circumstance that has presented itself to us is to reject God because everything springs from Spirit. The Universe continually invites us to claim the abundance that is always present in all of the circumstances of our lives. Jesus told us that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. He talked about how God is as near as our breath and pointed to the beauty of the lilies as evidence of God’s promise of abundance. With his simple teachings he reassured us that everything is included in the Kingdom of Heaven even the challenging circumstance we may currently be facing.
I invite you to stop what you are doing and breath into the events of your life. Scan your day and see what you have labeled as “awful!” Now physically open your arms wide and welcome it. You may not be able to see the abundance just yet and that is OK. Just know that abundance is right where you are just waiting to be seen. Ask the Holy Spirit for help with understanding and wisdom as you embrace all events seeing them as heaven made manifest. Affirm, “God’s promise of abundance is fulfilled in me right now. Not tomorrow or a minute from now-but right now.” Claim it! Know it! Give thanks for it.
