Minute Meditations

God's Love

  • God is always much better than the most loving person you can imagine. It is not that we pray and God answers. It is that our praying is already God answering within us and through us
  • God painted a rainbow in the sky to assure us he would always love us without reserve. That visual aid teaches us about God's faithfulness and invites us to practice fidelity in return
  • God "burns up" with the passion of loyalty to his friends. And every human being on earth is God's friend to whom he pledges fidelity
  • You are the love of God. God loves through you and longs for life and love through you and in you.
  • The Holy Spirit nudges, doesn't force, us to open our hearts to Christ. God never sleeps. The Spirit never rests
  • What causes some people to complain that God has lost interest in them often depends on their strange ability to close their ears to his word, to shut their eyes to his enticing beauty, to padlock the entrance to their hearts so we cannot receive his love
  • We are one with God in the love of Jesus. On this firm basis, we are able to love God as God loves us—and to show God's kind of loving to our neighbor
  • Remember that the truth is a person—Jesus. Our goal is not just to get good information but to draw closer and closer to Him. Then when we speak, by the power of His Spirit, we can convey the love God has for those who are confused.
  • The lives of saints never point to themselves, but always and forever beyond themselves to the One who chose them, uses them and loves them
  • If you have loved and been loved in return, you have some idea of what the promise of eternal life is
  • There is always hope of salvation until a person has finally passed the frontier of death. God predestines no one to hell.
  • The proof of God’s love and compassion is printed with nails in the palms of his only Son, Jesus Christ.
  • I am, by the grace of God, full of joy and gladness because I am not alone--Christ is with me. In the midst of this storm I cast my anchor towards the throne of God, the anchor that is the lively hope in my heart
  • The first and greatest love that God gives us is at the Baptism. In this sacrament God adopts us and snatches us from the darkness of sin
  • Loving Father, we thank you, we praise you, and we adore you for your love shown to us in Jesus our Saviour. We thank you for the many beautiful ways you call us to come to you, the source of life.
  • I cannot fully grasp the breathtaking work of the Holy Spirit in my life. But I know that he is real; he is at work in me
  • Faith always involves a response - not to impress God but to allow God's love to bear fruit, to affect our decisions radically
  • Human freedom is very real and can produce very different results. God's love for us means that He does not restrict our freedom - for good or for ill.
  • If you want to know the will of God as it relates to purity, go to him in prayer. He's not waiting to take something away from you. He's waiting to teach you to love
  • As we struggle to leave the ordinary we discover the sacred, finding our heart's delight hidden in the midst of God's love.
  • God, help us to see one another with your eyes, eyes that love equally. Help us to care with your heart, a heart that makes no separation or distinction.
Love is the message
Quote of the Day
Galatians 4:4-5

"But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship"
