In order for life to make any sense at all, there must be a defining center. Neither myself nor any other self is big enough to be that defining center. Life cannot revolve around ourselves and have meaning. The Center of Life is beyond ourselves. To follow Christ means that our true center, our true peace, and our true strength can only be rooted in the belief that we are loved by God and will never be abandoned.
Lord, increase my faith.
I will try to be attentive to the revelations of God’s fidelity and love in my life.
Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them.
Mark 9:2 -10
If God is for us, who can be against us?
Silence is God’s first language; everything else is a poor translation. In order to hear that language, we must learn to be still and to rest in God.
I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had absolutely no other place to go.
Having God’s unconditional love does not mean you have God’s unconditional approval.
You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.
God is love, and as pure love, He is always inclusive, and I believe that we should be, too.
