Trust in Love

Go where your heart leads you.

Jeremiah 17:5

Thus says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the Lord.

So many times it seems we let other people define us.

We look to others to receive validation.

But it is only God who can name us.

And God…who is Love (1 John 4:8)…creates us in love to know love and to be love.

So we, too, are Love.

The delusion is that we don’t know it!

Instead of letting God name us…we look to others.

Instead of acting from what our hearts tell us to do…we act on what others, society and the “world” tells us to do.

What is your heart yearning to do?

To know…you must awaken from the illusion created by the stories your mind, your ego and others have been concocting about you.

You…the true you…is love. And God loves you eternally.

Believe that.

Stop trying to please your ego or others. That will only lead to emptiness.

Who or what is motivating your actions?

May you awaken to God’s constant Presence and Infinite Love for you…each moment.

Live there.
