So many voices
So many people standing firmly
In their truth.
So many ears that totally miss the heart
That’s risking to be heard.
We are so quick to throw people into boxes.
Chain link fences of phrases and photos
Dividing people onto sides.
My heart weeps with the immensity of it all.
It feels like a shouting match and no one is listening.
Like the air is so full of static that
The true sound waves can never break through.
And meanwhile, the truth is hovering in
The stillness of timeless space.
Waiting to be embraced.
I invite you to
Ride above the commotion and ammunition.
Above the bombs of emotion.
Find that quiet retreat of your own beating Heart.
Know that you are more then this.
Grace and love have already won.
Our hearts can rest on the timeless truth of who God is.
“Divine Love in all its forms.
Joy that overflows.
Peace that subdues.
Patience that endures.
Kindness in action.
A life full of virtue- goodness.
Faith that prevails.
Gentleness of heart.
Strength of spirit.
Never set the law above these qualities.
They are meant to be limitless.
Never be arrogant or look down on another
For Each of Us is an Original.”
From the Book of Galatians
It is not simple and naive to draw closer to the Creator of our hearts.
Bury your head in the truth of who Jesus is. Stay there.
Allow it to fill you so completely that you can remain deeply at peace through all the confusion and emotionally charged barrages.
It is not naive to believe that Our Divine is constantly working and always speaking. Listen and look for the peace that is continually flowing from the heart of our Creator for you. You will find it.
Relax in the One who enfolds you in grace.
The One who sets us free to become servants of each other, expressing love in everything we do.
Own the truth of you but even more importantly own the truth of who you have been created to be in the realms of the Divine.
