Be Not Afraid


Psalm 130:1-2

Out of the depths I call to you, Lord; Lord, here my cry!

Do you experience a deep yearning…an insatiable craving for something more…something to fill a deep void inside? You cannot satisfy that craving with anything of this world. Many fall into the trap of thinking that if they just had more of this or that then they’d be satisfied: Just a little more money…just the right relationship…just a little more control or prestige. Not so! St. Paul said, “All creation is groaning in labor pains” (Romans 8:22). We all share in creation’s “labor pains” as we are drawn by a Great Compassion to the fullness of God’s plan. St. Paul went on to say that “we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings” (Romans 8:26). St. Paul says the groanings we are experiencing are the Holy Spirit interceding for us according to God’s will. God is luring you…lovingly drawing you…leading you to wholeness, healing and completion. The pain comes from refusing to change…from clinging to things that won’t last that we have to let go of to be able to move on. So relax. Let go. Love is drawing you…and in love there is no fear.
