From within

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
                  and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;
         therefore the child to be born will be holy.

                           —Luke 1.35

         Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord,
                  and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
         for God has looked on me with favor in my lowliness.

                           —Luke 1.46, 48

God does not see human illusions of status,
or measure success, righteousness or worthiness.
God sees you as a soul, perfect and beloved.
God sees you from the inside out.

God regards you with favor.
Not judgment, not disappointment.
God has no desire to evaluate you,
but only to dwell in you
and perfect you in love.

Ponder this; dwell on it a while
Enter into this mystery.
Give it time and silence to grow in you.
Like an unborn child in its mother,
God is in you, wholly present,
without desire to be elsewhere,
you and God sources of infinite joy
for each other.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
