At times we may feel
disconnected from God through our sin, disobedience or by ignoring the spirit
of God within us. Violating the
greater laws of the universe can have a blinding and deadening effect on the senses,
the conscience. We can easily slip
into unconsciousness or the illusion of separation by our refusal to agree with
the way of God. All of us have
found ourselves estranged from the path of love and the way of God at one time
However, no matter how
disconnected we may feel, it doesn't change God's eternal essence as being love
and loving us. Our illusion of
being cut off from God's love cannot overpower God's pervading and prevailing
love. The sun is always shining
and emitting energy. Yet, the
earth's rotation, clouds or even an eclipse may create for those of us on the
earth the illusion that the sun is not there - not being.
The sun is always the sun and is always
there. It is our illusion that
tells us otherwise. It is also
only and illusion that we are out of the reach of God's love. Illusions can only limit our awareness
of God's omnipresent love.
Illusions cannot provoke God to un-love us or force God to be anything
other than God.
Quote of the Week
"Divine love is freely given
and unearned. God's grace transcends
any relationship. God cannot
relate any differently to one person than to another. Jesus makes this point very clearly when He says that God
loves and forgives the wicked.
They haven't earned love through any action or love directed toward
God. All they had to do was to
exist. To be is to be loved by God."
