On Earth as in Heaven 3

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Jesus told us to pray, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Your name, may Your Kingdom come and Your will be done.” Do you think He would tell us to pray it and it not be possible?

Is it possible to be on earth and experience heaven? We all know too well that we can experience hell on earth, which many of the refugees in war torn areas are, as well as are many that are in marriage relationships or other relationships full of pain and heart ache.

We began praying around five years ago that our desire was for our marriage to be on earth as in heaven. Holy Spirit has been doing much pruning and trimming over the years getting at the roots of selfishness, pride, insecurities and independence. We have experienced great improvement and enjoyment in our marriage and continue to believe that the very best is yet to come.

Last week we spent four days on our yearly marriage vision retreat which was inspired by Jimmie Evans of Marriage Today.It’s like we have had to come back down to earth which is not nearly as enjoyable. So – did we experience heaven on earth? We think so!
