God Is Present

If you are not focused on this moment…you are missing your life.

Matthew 25:13

“Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”

+++

Many times this statement by Jesus is taken to mean some sort of warning about when death will come…and that you better have your act together or else!

That is a very fearful interpretation.

Does that interpretation sound like something the same guy who preached love and forgiveness would say? It seems a far cry from the guy who commanded us to “love your enemies” (Matthew 5:44).

Jesus always reached out to those who were struggling in their imperfection and unworthiness. That’s because God’s love does not depend on our worthiness.

God’s love is given continuously…in each moment. True love is never withheld.

But are we ready to receive it?

Are we “awake” to the Grace that God is ready to give us?

Or are we asleep…distracted by other worldly things with no lasting importance?

God wants to lift us in the places where we are unable to do so…with a Love that will heal us and make us whole. For this to happen…our egos have to get out of the way.

Stop.

Be silent.

Awaken to the Divine Presence.

As Jesus said: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand”(Mark 1:15).

The time of salvation and freedom…is now!
