Connected to Heaven

I have moments I know I am connected to Heaven.  I can’t see it, it’s something I know.  It’s something I can’t be talked out of.  God lives in me and He loves through me.  His love is unstoppable.  His love is life changing and miraculous.  His love guarantees me that I will live in  Heaven after this earthly journey is finished.

Our earthly lives are the beginning of something greater.  What I do on earth affects eternity.  Do I live  like it does?  That is my prayer, that I live like I know I am affecting eternity.  My desire is to be so aware of the spiritual that I give no thought to myself.  The Creator of the Universe is concerned about me.  He bought me with a Price.  I have no right to my life. 

What will He have me do?  Can I do it?  Do I want to do it?

Roman’s 8:6-8

For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

These words seem harsh, but they are not.  We are spirits and can be spiritually minded.   God has only good things planned for us. We can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens us.

I say, “Yes Lord.”

YES! I have recently been on that same track, about how our vapor fast lives here will determine our eternal rewards. What an awesome thought to have, isn't it?

I say yes too and I have to say it everyday - not just once. Saying yes requires resolve and determination when everything else is screaming no. I'm glad you're saying yes. We have a church full of people saying yes too. That's cool. Just saying... :0)

It is only when I quit thinking of myself and keep my mind on Jesus Christ that I have peace in my heart.

It's a constant refocusing, isn't it?
