Let Go…Let God

God’s love for us and everything is eternal.

Psalm 34:19

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.

Have you heard of the word “panentheism”?

It is not the same as “pantheism”.

Here’s the difference: Pantheism is the belief that God and the universe can be equated; that God is the universe.

Panentheism states that all is in God; it says the Divine interpenetrates all aspects of the universe and transcends it.

St. Paul seemed to believe the latter.

He put it this way when talking about God: “In him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

Since we also equate God with Love (1 John 4:8), then we literally are living and moving and having our being in Love itself.

God cannot abandon us. Impossible!

The feeling that we are separated from God is an illusion of our minds.

If you are feeling this…you are in good company.

Everyone experiences this at various points in their lives. Many saints did as well.

It’s called the “dark night of the soul.”

Mother Teresa endured years of this.

So if you are struggling…know that you are not alone.

You are being taken to a deeper place of God’s love.

Let go and fall into the all-consuming, all-embracing Great Compassion.
