From Here to There


From Here to There

could be a great thing

or a not~so~great thing,

as it all depends on

where your

Here is

and what your

"There" is.

You see

There.

You want to be

There.

You will get

There.

But what is your

There?

Whatever

"There" may be~

when you want what you want,

isn't that what you are focused on

and you will do anything

to get

There?

Oh how my grandson

took every step

to the top,

to get to

what he wanted,

even though what he wanted,

the cat,

didn't want him~

but

he still

smiled

and laughed

after he made the climb

to the top

and then

continued on to his next endeavor.

He

made it to his destination,

because his eyes were

peeled on

There~

fixed on

the cat

and no one was going

to stop him.

As I watched

his little hands & his little legs

move from step to step,

listening to his little gurgles of joy,

it made me think

of the child~like faith

that is

so trusting

so pure

so full of joy.

He didn't grumble climbing the steps &

it didn't matter if he got the cat or not.

He was

in the moment

enjoying the process

one step at a time.

This little boy

teaching his little 'ole granny

how to live life

with eyes fixed on our destination~

because it is all about the destination.

If the destination was his nap,

he would't have been so joyful,

but the destination was something

that brought him joy~

so much in that

he pursued it

he sought it out.

What is your destination?

Where are your eyes peeled, fixed on?

Is it a something or someone that you wish would change?

Is it the 10 pounds that you want to lose, again and again?

Is it _________________? You fill in the blank

You become whatever your eyes are fixed on.

So what if

at the top of your steps

you saw

Peace standing there

Joy standing there

Hope standing there

Love standing there

How quickly would you crawl up the steps?

I bet you would run

and enjoy every step getting there .

But

HE is There

with open arms

and all

He asks

is for us is to~

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to Him..

so that

... He will make your paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6)

And all it entails is

fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. (Hebrews 12:2)

By making our destination

Jesus~

because

He is our

Peace

Joy

Hope

Love

If only I would always remember to

and

if you would always remember to ~

"Let your eyes look straight ahead;

fix your gaze directly before you." (Proverbs 4:25)

then our way to

There

will be filled with

Joy

as

Jesus

is not only standing at the top

but

He is

on every step to help us get

There!

From Rags to Riches

because

Jesus

went

From Riches to Rags.
