The God Process
Are there moments in your life, where reality seems to converge with this eternal dimension—this mystical spiritual world, which we cannot see or touch?
I was taking a trip through British Columbia not long ago and the traffic was stopped on the highway, because a semi-truck had caught on fire. We were stopped for a couple of hours and so people would get out and chat. I had a conversation with a truck driver and the topic came up about how our lives were both impacted by cancer. This truck driver was telling me that his parents split up when he was young and that he grew up with his mother and step-father. He didn’t have a lot of time with his biological father in his younger years; however, when he was nineteen his father came down with cancer and he became the caregiver. He lived with his father for those six months and watched death take him.
About ten years later, after this truck driver got married and started a family, he was putting his two year old daughter to bed. When he pulled out a bedtime story to read to her, she said, “Grandpa isn’t your real dad, is he?” Somewhat surprised with the question he replied, “Well no.” “What happened to your dad?” the daughter asked. He thought a moment, then said, “Sometimes people get sick and do not get better. Your other grandpa, my dad, got sick. He got so sick that he went to heaven.” “Oh.” The two year old paused, “Well he hurt here (hip), here (stomach) and here (head), but he is all better now!”
Sometimes we are given these mystical messages to remind us that there is more to life than just this life. These gifts tells us that our loved ones, which have passed on before us, live on in another dimension.
So, do you believe in God? Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe that every so often that God steps into your life to remind you that He is there, and that everything is going to be okay? Do you believe that your life has purpose and that through your choices, you can connect with God? More importantly, do you believe that God offers you healing and wholeness that comes from looking to Him and accepting this divine, intangible, surreal love? Do you believe that there is more to gain by having a faith, a trusting in this God, that you cannot see, then not having this faith or belief?
The God Process points us in the direction to discover what we painfully hide. When we connect the dots, when we look back, look in, and look up, we can discover the hidden gems that God is offering. If you look for events in your own life, you will discover your God lessons. The God lessons tell you that God is there. God lessons can sometimes bring you to your knees, but not always. God isn’t trying to bring you to your knees. When we plan our lives, we plan it with God, with the hope that we can overcome obstacles and find healing for our soul. To love again as God intended—that is the real gem. Love is the infusion of God and God’s light.
When you find God you will find that your own mystery will start to unfold. As you realize your God Process, the choices that you make in life will connect you to God and you will find your own extraordinary events that tell you that God is there.
