All is Loved by John Morton
In Genesis, the first book of the Bible, God declares with each progressive day of creation, “It was good” (Genesis 1). There is a divine authority placed within each of us to claim the blessings of unconditional loving through our trust and faith in the intrinsic good in everything. Even if you do not recognize that divine presence right now, it is present. The Light and love are present always.
We may not necessarily like all our circumstances. We’re tested in our personalities, our minds, and our egos. So it’s important to engage your trust and faith that each situation and experience is of the Light and love. Everything that comes forward in your day is from God and therefore inherently good and loved unconditionally. Even when you don’t like something, remember “This too is loved.” Remember, you too are loved.
You might ask yourself, “Am I loving this? Am I loving myself?” Take a moment to pause and listen. Maybe you’ll realize you need to get yourself engaged inwardly because outwardly you’re already reacting negatively. If you are, then move inwardly into the Spirit and re-instill that love is your foundation. Love is who you are and what you are, regardless of what is done or said or anything that happened.
Move into full commitment to love and care for yourself as you are. Could you have a relapse? Well, of course. But with good awareness about yourself, you can say, “I’ve already done that. I don’t need to do that again.” Through your courage and patience, and by remembering who you are spiritually, you can stop the pattern that puts you down and finds fault with yourself.
