Heart & Soul..

When you woke up this morning did you even have a clue what you were suppose to accomplish this day? Sure you knew you had to shower and clean up and go to your job or meet up with a friend or help out with some charitable activity - but aside from all your commitments - what were you suppose to accomplish in this one day? If you are like most people - you don't have a clue. I cannot profess to know what I am suppose to accomplish on any given day either - so does that make you and I failures? I don't think so. We exist to love and serve our God and how we live our daily lives either does or does not accomplish that goal. In our work - in our play - in our interactions with each other - how we communicate - in anger - in compassion - in love - has affects that we can barely imagine. We live our lives honestly - each day - doing what we believe is right and just - and in the hidden spaces between the lines of our lives - God works miracles - all without our knowledge.
When we look at the life of Jesus - do we only see the external? Do we only see what is visible? If we do - we are missing what He is all about. To truly see Him - to truly see God - we need to look with the eyes of our hearts and listen with the ears of our souls.
