Today’s Question: How would your life change if you embraced God’s love?
Br. Curtis Almquist reminds us that “abide” in the Gospel and Letters of John means, “don’t run away. Stay put.” Br. Curtis continues: “You probably do not have your act completely together. It’s going to take you the rest of your life and beyond, I think, for that to happen.”
Somehow these are comforting words to me. To know that I’m on a journey that really doesn’t have an end, I can relax and enjoy the ride. Some days seem like sheer joy and others pure misery, but I can seek solace that Jesus is with me every step. In my memoir I recounted a turning point for me. It was in a dream where I was still a small girl, and I was always just slightly out of the man’s reach. But then one day, he scooped me up in his arms and I felt his warm embrace. It was only talking with a friend much later, that I realized that man was God and he would always take care of me.
