In My Nothingness

Only through humble eyes can God be seen. I am nothing; God is everything. But in my nothingness, God gives me everything. Humility helps shatter illusions. Humility is the truest form of honesty. It sees our weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Humility allows God to transform our weaknesses into strengths.

Humility is a pathway to prayer. Prayer is the doorway to the heart, the center of our being, the place where we can let go, let go of pretense, pride, ego, and a host of things blocking us from the true source of life, the true source of love, God.

In the innermost chamber of the heart we see the dissonance between the Spirit of God and our spirit; it’s here we struggle to dissolve that difference. In the safety of the heart we can let go of fear and we can risk change. In the heart, conflict gives way to harmony. In the heart, what’s mine becomes God’s. In the heart, humility becomes holiness.
