Beloved: See what love the Father has bestowed on us that
we may be called the children on God.
1 John 3:1
Love is the deepest desire of our hearts. We seek love through relationships, nature, success, praise, drugs and objects. Yet, we are left wanting, our desire unfulfilled. To be the Beloved, the love that fulfills our heart comes from understanding and knowing ourselves as first and foremost, children of God. Oh, to be loved as the Beloved by God, our Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We are so deeply loved by God; loved into being, loved into an earthly family and loved into a heavenly eternity. Not a moment passes that God is not radiating divine love within our hearts. Beloved: seek and receive first the love of God so that we may accept and appreciate ourselves and others as the Beloved, children of God.
Dear Jesus, help me to seek and accept myself and others as God’s Beloved child so that I may radiate Love in my thoughts, words and actions regardless of life’s circumstances. Amen
