God in the Real World

You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
~ Matthew 5:8, The Message

I’m jealous of my wife.

I’m sure that’s not a biblical statement, but it’s true. Kristy has undergone a radical transformation over the last couple of years since becoming a Catholic. It’s not that she didn’t take her faith serious before, but it seems like she has found the right password to God’s wi-fi connection. It’s truly a blessing for our family.

When I read this bible passage my first thought was how great that must feel to have your inside world set straight and be able to see God in the outside world. Then I realized that person is living under the same roof as me.

This is a constant struggle for me…even before I became a Catholic. For quite some time I’ve be torn between the world and all its false promises and the spiritual-world filled with eternal treasures. I desire to find that same peace my wife has with her inside world so I too can see God in the real world.
