"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation" (2 Cor 5:17-18 NIV)
Albert Einstein once said, "Most people see what
is, and never see what can be." I myself have seen far too much of what
this world is in my lifetime. That is why I am now doing my best to see
what this world can be.
When I look at this world full of beautiful, loving souls I see what could be if all of us would only work to bring it about. I see a world where no child would ever go hungry again. I see a world where there is no more war. I see a world where all the religions respect each other and every person is seen as a fellow Child of God. I see a world where diseases are cured, the sick are cared for, and people in every country live in health and happiness. I see a world where hatred, fear, and prejudice are seen as the poisons they are and where no one allows them to make a home in the human heart again. I see a world where every child has an adult to hug them and every elderly person has someone to love and care for them. I see a world where the mentally and physically disabled are treated with all the care, respect, and kindness that they deserve and where no one is looked down upon because they are different. I see a world where everyone would see just how much God loves them and where everyone would do their best to share their own love with all the souls they meet along the way. I see a world where all of us would live each day in joy and all of us would work every second to make Earth more like Heaven.
The most wonderful thing of all, though, is that I have already seen this world happening. I have seen it happening one mind, one heart, and one soul at a time. Don’t settle for what is then. Work with God to create what can be. This world can be a place of love, joy, caring, sharing, goodness, and delight. This world can be a beautiful home for the Children of God to learn, to love, and to grow if we only work to make it so.
