Rightly Aligned with the Universe

Once I had a friend named Dean. He didn’t believe in God — or tried to convince us that he didn’t. I wasn’t the most persuasive advocate for the Lord. But when I made a concerted effort to root out the sin in my life, to confess it, to make everything right with God . . . WOW! I found great joy and peace. I was much happier and more content than normal.

My friends noticed, especially Dean. My explanation intrigued him, too. I told him that by forgiving everyone who had hurt me, I was now rightly aligned with the Universe. And so I was. And so he could have been. And so we all can be. For to agree with God about our sins and to stop holding others at fault for their sins, this brings us into alignment with the Almighty, and thus with the Universe that He has created.
