Our Purpose… Love…

IMG_1764
In the midst of our reality… As a nation, I believe one of the most important things we can do is simply embrace the simplicity of our purpose as humans… Which is to love and be loved by God…

To move closer to Him as He moves closer to us…

To love and be love…

Because we don’t just need Him in these moments… We need Him all the time… And more than that… He needs us all the time…

I feel like… As a society, and I am equally guilty… We’ve become so caught up and distracted by our ever evolving world… We are so connected yet so unconnected… And if we are that unconnected to each other… Imagine how unconnected we are to God… To His presence…

I don’t believe God makes things like this happen… But I do believe He allows them and uses them…

That the opposite end of what is dark, is light… That the power of the negativity we feel can easily be turned to positivity and light… To love…

And I believe more than anything… That God…. In all of His complexity and majesty is truly just simply trying to love us deeply in these moments of chaos…

And… We don’t have to search for it… Seek it… Or pine for it on our knees… We just have to say, “I accept your love God”…

Because I feel like within that… Within just becoming acceptors of His love, we can quickly become part of the solution… Less of the problem…

We can actually allow God to change our hearts and break down barriers that have been built up between races, ethnicities and religions for hundreds of thousands of years…

We can become filled with love and less about the hate that, in some way, breeds inside all of us…

And more than anything… We can stop reenforcing fear… Because fearing fear is disrespectful within itself…

And as our nation continues to shake… To move… To wrestle with it’s reality… I believe peace can be found… That stillness in our hearts… In our souls… In our minds… Is an option we can easily choose…

But we have to start by growing, by cultivating more light, love and life towards one another in every single hand shake, facial gesture and with every word we speak…
