Finding God's Goodness

Week Twenty. Hopeful. The Voice of Love.

Month Five. Fortitude to love myself expands my hope and kindness.

Do I know the voice of love and let it sustain my being? Love is God’s love language which is being spoken all the time.

All God has to say is I love you. When you listen to His voice, harden not your heart. Learning to love is like discovering the wheel of my emotions.  For so many years, I’ve limited my perspective to a handful of ways where I’ve seen or known God when there are endless ways of knowing. But I must learn the language God speaks of His love. It can be the taste of a strawberry or feeling the strength of my body. It is the breath I took upon waking this morning, signaling the gift of another day. This is what it means to come alive and live a spiritual life. God lives in great subtlety and many times lives in a whisper. Our breath is trust in life, at birth to death.  When we lose meaning in life we die. This meaning comes from a sense of communion with the divine. As I go deep into my faith and reach the point where I am connected, I live in universal faith. This faith and trust in life unites us as human beings. God isn’t something or someone, God is deep trust, belief in some thing. God is closer to me than my own breath. God’s not somebody else but deep within the depths of my being.

Inspired by the writing of Thomas Merton.

The journey is opening my eyes to see I am there living in love. The pilgrimage is when every step I take, I reach this goal to know love and I’m challenged to be the mystic I am meant to be.

Lord, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
