Unconditional Love

Be still and know the Goodness of God.

Psalm 27:13-14

But I believe I shall enjoy the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord, take courage; be stouthearted, wait for the Lord!

Life is not some game in which we try to be good enough to make the cut to get to heaven one day.

God’s love cannot be earned. It’s freely given!

“It’s heaven all the way to heaven” as St. Catherine of Siena is quoted as saying.

God wants us to experience love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion now…“in the land of the living” so that we can be transformed and share that love with others. That is how we take part in building the kingdom of God here on earth.

It’s not about our goodness earning God’s love…but God’s goodness poured out generously and unconditionally upon us now.

God does not love me because I am good but because God is good, generous and loving.

God is Love.

Allow that knowledge to sink in. Rest in it.

And if you are not experiencing this amazing acceptance and love at the moment…take courage! Wait for the Lord!

Be still.

Be.

While you are consciously waiting…you are being present.

In that Presence…I guarantee that you will find the unconditional love and compassion of God.
