The Biblical statement, “God is Love” is perfectly accurate. God is not a superman dishing out love to you and expecting it in return. God is love, and you are its instrument of self-expression. To love God is to experience the feeling of love – to let love flow through you.
As you let the feeling of love unfold and grow naturally, you will come to understand and participate in its delightful activity. You will soon be experiencing the action described in the following words: “The feeling of love draws me closer and closer to God, and I begin to feel that I and the Father are one,” and “The feeling of love casts out fear, wipes out all sense of separation, and unifies me with my Creator.”
God is love and in that love there is not condemnation, disapproval, or faultfinding. Love always approves of its creation, regardless of the stage of unfoldment it is in.
Love (God) approves of you as its child or self-expression. Love always puts the stamp of approval on you so that you will feel free to open up and receive the radiant energy that improves you! Love is unconcerned with what is wrong with you – it knows what is right with you. – J. Sig Paulson, Your Power To Be
WHAT MATTERS MOST
The wives who lived within the walls of the Weinsberg Castle in Germany were well aware of the riches it held: gold, silver, jewels, and wealth beyond belief.
Then one day came in 1141 A.D. when all their treasures was threatened. an enemy army had surrounded the castle and demanded the fortress, the fortune, and the lives of the men within. There was nothing to do but surrender.
Although the conquering commander had set a condition for the safe release of all women and children, the wives of Weinsberg refused to leave without having one of their conditions met, as well. They demanded that they be allowed to fill their arms with as many possessions as they could carry out with them. Knowing that the women couldn’t possibly make a dent in the massive fortune, their request was honored.
When the castle gates opened, the army outside was brought to tears. Each woman carried out her husband. – Rochelle Pennington
