365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 38-West Palm Beach, Florida:
The love that God has for us flows like a river. Not only does this love last forever, but we also have the capacity to love God and others in the same manner. We spend so many days attempting to be so tough and strong. We do not have to live life like that. We can actually live a life full of joy, happiness, and complete love with Jesus in our hearts. It takes a special commitment to love someone unconditionally, and that is exactly what our Father in Heaven does with us. He gives us absolute love.
Have you ever seen a married couple reach a 50-year anniversary and wonder how did they do it, especially in a world where divorce is as common as marriage in some countries? They seem priceless and so happy together. It is assumed, that in most of these cases, that God played a major role in the success of their life long relationship. Do you think that these couples did anything differently than those who enter into relationships that fail? Do you think that God was included in their daily routines? Did they go to church as instructed in the Bible? Did they pray together? These are all wonderful questions and more times than not the answers are right in front of us.
Therefore, there has to be a logical explanation why some people are happy and some people are not in relationships. We just have to communicate with God to find out what we can do differently to see the world from a new perspective and identify with those we love effectively. The joy of life is having people around us who love us the way that God loves us. It begins with our love and relationship with God first. Once there is a baseline established with Jesus, we can then propel ourselves out into the world to share the mystery of faith with everyone.
May God bless our hearts with the love that we need to be a vessel for Him in this world with friends, family, and everyone we encounter in our lives. Amen.
