Let Go and Live

Each of us has a part in the Creative Flow of God’s Love if we surrender.

Romans 4:13

It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants that he would inherit the world, but through the righteousness that comes from faith.

+++

In other words…life is not about our doing something…following some particular rules…so as to earn the world.

It’s not about earning.

It’s not about achieving.

It’s not about being worthy.

It’s not about a check-off-list of righteousness.

Our precious lives and all things have been given to us…by Pure Grace.

It’s all gift.

And each of our lives is meant to be lived so as to share God’s gift of love.

When you give yourself away…you paradoxically inherit everything.

All you have to do is have faith…or in other words…believe.

Awaken to the wonder that each breath you take is a wondrous gift of God.

Go ahead…take a deep breath of Love.

Exhale life-giving carbon dioxide to the plants and trees…which in turn release oxygen back to you and me.

It’s one beautiful cycle of life…all fueled by a Source of Eternal Love.

May we all surrender to the joy of the great gift we have received and are continuing to receive each moment.
