Thoughts

There are days when we are not loved. May we never see a day when we have anything less than unconditional love for all people.

Sometimes people push us away. Never let it be said that “in our hearts” we have failed to embrace our detractor, and speak blessings over their life. 

The rains fall on the just and the unjust, yet the love of God’s SON continues to illuminate our hearts. The joy of life does not rest in what we receive from others. It rests peacefully in the palm of giving hands. 

When fists are clenched against us, let us open our hands in love to all people. When words of hatred are spoken against us, let us speak a blessing north, south, east and west. 

When religion focuses on the evil of sin – Grace focuses on the goodness of God. When self-righteousness demands justice –forgiveness paves the way to healing.

God’s ways are not our ways. God’s ways are better.
