The importance of moments

The family trip to Yellowstone National Park was memorable for more than its beauty and grandeur. Our preschooler reached a personal milestone there. Oblivious of noisy sightseers watching a three-hundred-foot water-fall, our little son bent down and quietly tied his own shoelaces. It was the first time. To this day he remembers how diligently he had worked for that moment of triumph and how natural it was when it came.

Such moments of modest but memorable triumph occur in the practice of Christian healing, too—glimpses of self-discovery when we recognize our talents and abilities as the child, the reflection, of God. Those moments may range from the gentle dawning in thought of some spiritual truth to profound revelations of enlightenment. They can come during the stillness of prayer or like a little boy's small victory beside a roaring waterfall.
