Opening the Door to God

[Excerpt by Joan Warden in Divine Love for the Soul - God's Gift of Love]

As I sat outside by the patio table the other day enjoying the beautiful autumn weather, I thought I heard a rustling noise on the other side of the gate near the front porch. A few seconds later, the doorbell rang confirming that my hearing was still functioning. But rather than hopping up and announcing to a stranger that somebody was home, I sat there quietly waiting for this uninvited person to leave, as I just did not want to be bothered.

Perhaps, this same scenario happens with a lot of people throughout their lives – only substitute the word “stranger” with “God.” If He appeared from out of the blue and knocked on your door, would you open it? Or would you not want to be bothered?

Now don’t get me wrong, God wouldn’t actually come and knock on your front door; rather, the door that He does knock on is the one to your heart. In fact, He’s anxiously doing it, so that you may open it and let Him enter.

If you feel uncomfortable because you don’t know God, the following is a bit of information about Him that may cause you to have a change of heart.

God is Love and this means that God is everything that is good and pure and lovely. He is the only one who is supreme and all powerful and loving and....

There Are Two Loves, Not One

[Excerpt by Ian Nicol in Divine Love for the Soul - God's Gift of Love]
 
People are taught that there is one love, but there are two loves: natural love and Divine Love, or to put it another way, the love we were created with, perfected or not, and the Divine Love, which is God’s love.

No-one can comprehend this Love of the Father until they receive it into their soul. It’s like the old saying, “What you have never had, you will never miss,” and another thing, those who have not received it do not recognise it in those who have received it, and to complicate things even more, some have unknowingly received this Love but lack the understanding of what it is that makes them different from who they were before the inflowing of this love.

But when you sincerely pray to God with faith and longings for the inflowing of the Divine Love, you will receive it, and you will understand the great change in your soul that it causes. Also, you will know that it is waiting for everyone to accept no matter what their condition of soul is.

This Love is progressive and comes in answer to the prayers of the individual, the more a person prays for it, the more of this love is received and the person that prays for this love may look forward to a time in the future when their soul completes its purpose and then....

Thoughts on Losing My Mind

[Excerpt by Ruth Duvall in Divine Love for the Soul - God's Gift of Love]

God, it’s okay with me if I lose my eyesight and can’t see anymore. I will always have my spiritual eyes and I can remember what the sunset looks like and experience the warmth of the setting sun on my face. And, it’s okay if I lose the use of my legs. I can always remember those beautiful walks in the park with you and the feeling of levitating when Your Love flows into me. And, it’s okay if I lose my hearing. I know that it is always in the silence that I can hear your still small voice telling me of your Great Love for us all. And, it’s okay if I forget how to speak. Our best conversations have always been those without words.
 
But, what if I lose my mind? I hope that you will “remember for me.” Remember to hold me. Remember to love me. Remember to bless my family, my friends, and my extended family around the world. When I forget how to pray, remember the times that I did. When I forget how to share your gift of Love with others, remember for me.

I think I am beginning to see the lesson here. It is a lesson in faith, faith that You will always remember. Faith: that I am resting in the palm of your very capable hand. Faith: that even when I feel I am stumbling around in the dark, not knowing who or where I am, that You Do. Thank you, Father, for all those little lessons in my life. I only need to remember to have....
