Open Your Senses

God is bathing us in Love.

~~~

Psalm 42:2-3
As the deer longs for streams of water, so my soul longs for you, O God. My being thirsts for God, the living God.

~~~

We each have a deep yearning inside…a yearning that longs to be satisfied.

It seems that we either try to numb that yearning…cover it up…or try to satisfy it with material or physical things.

However, the yearning is on the “soul” level. It’s a spiritual longing.

As St. Augustine put it: “Our heart is restless until it finds rests in You (God).” Ultimately we will find our way back to oneness with our Loving Creator.

We and all that is…spring from a Source of Love. This Unconditional Love can be experienced in a limited way through our senses.

How is it that you experience God?

Is it in music, art, nature, touch, dance, words, scripture, silence…or something else?

Maybe all of those!

Be present to the Divine Presence.

Allow God to nourish you.

Allow your senses to be bathed in God’s Love.
