Approaching the Christ

This morning as I study Matthew 9:18 which reads “there came a certain ruler, and worshipped Him, saying, ‘My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.'”, there seemed to be no doubt in the ruler’s mind that this was not the end for his daughter.    Nor did I sense this was a last resort for him, but was clearly positive the Christ could heal his daughter.  The human scene would have been scary, as well,  but his faith in Christ was stronger than the material evidences before him.  So often, we are asked to put aside what we are seeing and rely upon the Truth that there can be no imperfection in perfection.  God’s universe IS perfect and our every needs are filled in this moment.  Today I will live more in the moment, watching thoughts of yesterday and tomorrow, giving them no power.
