Do we love as He loves?

Now that I experience Jesus's presence in my life,
I want to live not only for him but in him.
Living in him gives me a share in his wisdom, love, and power—to know as he knows, to love as he loves, to give my life to and for the kingdom of God.

Worthy of Love

We don't have to struggle to make ourselves great. It doesn't work. But we will be built up as we recognize that we have value in spite of our weaknesses. We are worthy of love simply because we are God's creation.

Is my way pleasing to God?

Sometimes I know that I behave in a stubborn "my way-or-the-highway" manner...Is this what God requires of me? Is God's invitation to Love others as He loves me...the best and only way? Absolutely!

Why then, am I this way? When I am honestly committing my way to the Lord...
When I place my complete trust in Him...when I humble myself like a child: "not-my-way-but the Lord's" ...The Lord will act and make everything work for my good...every-single-time!
Wow! Is this so hard to believe?

My prayer: Lord, guide me in everything this day. Please grant that I may always follow the way of Your Divine will...whatever the price. Amen.

Spiritual Growth

Each day we get up in the morning and choose to love better than we did the previous day. This is growth in the spiritual life.

The Art of Love

Is it enough to say:

What makes us LOVE as God loves?

Though by nature we are created by Love and in love...
Though our hearts are made for loving...
and our yearning for love is deep within...

our dispositions lead us to choose the emptiness of distorted views of love:
success, prestige, sex, money, power, etc...

The artist contemplates...before he creates
a given work of art...

We must also first contemplate
the beauty of our beloved Crucified...
where we will learn the art of true LOVE.
