Spirit, (the true Spirit), is the sustenance of mankind. None of us can be here without this Truth. My life is a result of the wondrous grace of Spirit. My body may pass from this earth, but I am spiritual and eternal. God teaches me that I am neither disposable nor material, because when He created me, I am forever!
Spirit leads me to love, cherish, and aid others. Thus, Grace is in action always and all benefit. Spirit leads me in all that I say and do throughout the day. It is in this framework that God invites me to help those I meet. And the longer I do this, the more I live to this level of spiritual beauty, all of God’s Creation shows itself to humanity. God’s Life and Love are no longer hidden from us; they are visible to all who see.
As a child of God, I live in the Truth, Life, and Love of His creation; I am forever bonded to God through Love and Grace and am therefore eternally bonded to all in humanity. I look around me and I see darkness and despair, due to mankind’s shortsightedness, and yet I see beauty in all things because God’s Spirit is present. I bring the mortal wounds of society to God’s healing hands. He allows me to breathe deeply for He knows that with my love, our love, of the Spirit within all of us that all will be well.
We are children of God and therefore have the Spirit of Love and Truth within us. Let us recognize the beauty we share.
