Love Overcomes

Hebrews 12:14
Strive for peace with everyone, and for that holiness without which no one will see the Lord.

It seems like there is so much cynicism and dissension in the world. Do we respond with more of the same? The fact is…all people are children of God and are divinely connected. To live in opposition to this deep truth means to live in a delusion. Jesus said to love your neighbor…and just to make it clear that that means everyone…He said to love your enemies as well! This is extremely difficult if not seemingly impossible! But with God…all things are possible. Loving God…help me to let go of myself…my ego…and allow You to live in me. For I know that when this happens…I am made whole (or “holy”) and You bring me peace. Then…may I extend that peace to others so that they may come to know You as well.

Suggested song of the day– “Make Me a Channel” on the Listen to Your Heart album.

  1. Love is the answer. Loving God first. Ourselves second and then allowing ourselves to be a channel through which others come to know this love. Powerful words Bill. Thank you!
