Unconditional Love Remembered

Updated on June 9, 2010

Thoughts of wondrous times, of hard work and painful movements, assail my innermost being. Times when there is nothing that consumes me but the pain. There are times when I see the pain that those around me feel and my pain is lessened in the empathy that I feel for them.

Life is such an amazing thing, and I am so blessed to be living it. To see the beauty in all things that surround me is to know that God is more amazing than I have been told. Reaching into the depths of my soul, I am touched in a way that puts me into a place that I could not go by myself. There is no way that I can express my thanks and wonder at His magnificence and majesty.

How can we go through life and not realize that He is there and He knows our every thought and feeling, and yet He still loves us. No conditions, no resignations, just total unconditional love. Yet we put conditions on everything, we give our love sparingly and when we do,  there is a long laundry list of things that we must receive in return.

The air we breathe is a mystery and the food we eat, amazing. Each step we take is a gift and the beauty of nature, a wonder that blesses us each time we take a moment to enjoy it. God has given us the gift of life and the ability to bless others with simple gestures, a smile, a word of encouragement, a loving touch. It is within our power to give that which God has given us, yet the times that we give these wonders to others is not given freely or without conditions. We are selfish, self-centered and often unforgiving.

There is a need in each of us that wants to trust and to share that which has been given to us with others. God has placed that need there and we must find our way back to him and learn to give to others as He has given to us. Give yourself to Him and let Him soothe the ache that tears us apart. Learn to love unconditionally through Him. It can be done, it is what He intended for us. We have just wandered away, we must make our way back and learn to love again.
