than four decades ago one of the dearest friends I have ever had the pleasure
of knowing gave me a book which I must profess I have never read. The title of
that book, not the pages inside, I have thought about nearly every day since I
received it: “Your God Is Too Small”.
title has helped guide me through a myriad of life situations. More than that
it has strengthened my relationship with my Creator I chose to call God and has
provided me with a spiritual way of living that everyday surprises me with new
adventures, new hopes, new dreams and new people to help and love.
must admit that when I was given this book I had a God I thought had left me
alone because of the ways I felt and acted. At that time, I was not an Atheist
but most assuredly an Agnostic. If anything, my God at that time was very
small indeed for I would give God no credit for things that went my way and
blame God for things I did not get just because I thought they were due to me.
these last many decades my God has grown. OK, my concept of my God has grown. I
now understand that God has always been there for me. I was never alone except
in my own ego driven mind. Once I consistently asked God for help and started
to see the positive results of living that type of life, God has grown in
statue and my need for guidance and help has gone from a simple belief to faith
that God could do great things for everyone else but not for me to a faith the
God was actually doing those same great things for me. The last stage was
that of having trust in my God that when I asked for help it would be provided.
ideas I present in the following writing is also based on another question a
new friend of mine asked me one day not long ago. What is Heaven going to be
like, really? At about the same time and within days of being asked that
question another dear friend put me on to the Christian author Hugh Ross and
his Reasons to Believe Ministry. I found some of the answers to the question
about Heaven while reading Hugh’s books. Then one day I came upon a new article
in a science magazine about Einstein’s “Spooky at a distance” problem and how
two scientists had come about trying to prove how particles are intertwined
across space and time. Within weeks another article reflected on new evidence that
a particle could be intertwined with many other particles.
thought came to me that perhaps these intertwined particles could be a way we humans’
transverse the boundary between human life and this unknown, but much wished
for eternity called Heaven. I must admit at this point that what I have written
is not a theory but merely conjecture. Some scientist will probably take out
his calculator and computer and prove that this is all impossible. That is fine
by me. What I think of what will happen after I pass into my non-human form
gives me peace. More than that is the basic fact that my conjectures give a
positive and uplifting eternity to look forward to.
I hope that some who read this will ask themselves the same question my friend of long ago asked me “Is Your God Too Small?” My belief is that someone or something is waiting to hear from you and guide you.
