Open to Love
What does being open to love mean....it means vulnerability, the possibility of someone hurting you, a possible connection with another human being, openess for forgiveness, Love. There are so many possibilities but only truly if you have experienced Christ. Knowing another human being that can love you and look at you with the love and the compassion and the power of Christ is an experience that will shake you.
I had an amazing experience at Communion and Liberation today where I really experienced the incarnation of Jesus in a group of women today. It was like no matter what I said or how I said it or how much I complained or how terribly needy I was it was like they never grew tired of me. On the contrary they delved deeper into my heart and just brought Jesus right there, right there to me. I got something really special today. I received a moment where I realized that I am truly being held in existence by the Love of God...Now at this very moment God is breathing, in a way, His love and life right into me and in the words of a dear friend "He is taking such delight in me." One especially dear friend was kind enough to write down some things that she and another friend said that I didnt want to forget and I really want to share them with you, whoever you are :)
We dont fear unless we have first received something beautiful- so dwell on the beautiful thing
Its not that the hundredfold wasnt there before, but youve been given the key to see it and you carry that key with you wherever you go. ( This pertaining to the fact that Christ is everywhere not just in certain towns or places and that once we experience the hundredfold He can let us experience it anywhere)
I just really wanted to write these things down because they are just pure gems.
Thank you God for loving me into existence and for blessing me with each of these precious moments of the day even the ones I have a hard time seeing your beauty in. Thank you for the incarnation, not only for our magnificent salvation you bring but for letting us see you in our own and others flesh and bones. I am not lonely anymore because I have seen You in another.
