Love…does not rejoice in unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth.
Love isnt about being right, Love is about the truth, even if it hurts. Love is staying true to you, no matter what! My personal routine in the morning goes like this: up and out of bed no later 5:30 am, feed the girls (my dogs. It’s important to keep them in a routine as I keep myself in a routine), then it is my turn. I meditate, then coffee awaits with my protein bar! Opps, do not forget the glass of water, then I read from Everyday Blessings, and I read a book, or go right into my journaling, better known as my blog.
Today my inspiration comes from the Everyday Blessings
The scripture above and let me tell you what angst arises within me when I read that…Love rejoices in truth! Really? What if someone’s truth is in killing, breaking laws, doing harm to others, which of course isn’t love? But is it? Are we surviving in this instance and this is our love? God doesn’t turn his back on us when we are in this place; he still loves us for we are his children. And this is where people are surviving! So I read on (in the book there is a short description so to speak, about the scripture). This scripture isn’t about a ‘perfect’ love (I feel the word perfect should be removed from our vocabulary), it is when we don’t love with a perfect love, and God does! He always nourishes what is right. He always applauds what is right. He has never done wrong, nor leads a man into wrong or rejoiced when anyone has done wrong! For he is love and love don’t rejoice in unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth. Wow, this is totally deep! I had to sit in my judgment of what is right and wrong and step into allowing and accepting where I am at with the divine Universe and his delivery. Allow others to be where they are, that to me is unrighteous love. We all walk on different paths at different paces, and that is our personal journey! There is no right and wrong, good or bad in God’s eyes. For him, there is just love.
I lived lies for years to do what I thought was ‘right,’ it was my personal survival. God didn’t dump me, he still loved me, and kept loving me until I turned inwards to start my loving healing journey.
Isn’t this what we all want?
Acceptance, love, serenity, peace and calm? John Lennon sang: “Give peace a chance,” and I say love as well all without judgment of another’s opinions and beliefs. (For I have a boatload of personal judgments.) We are a lost society of emotional opinions and beliefs and if others do not sway our way we beat down, bully, dismiss and even delete friendships. I have done this to myself, and I do this to others behind closed doors. How is that any different from committing a murder or breaking a law- which I did, a spiritual non-loving law? What ever happened to opening up and allowing others opinions as well as accepting my own? Personally, this is how I learn and grow; it is when the other corrects my emotions and opinions I stop. I am learning to be grateful in these situations, grateful for the other person God has placed in front of me. I do not unfriend, I just accept and allow where they are at and do not place myself into a combative situation with them or any others. This is my daily journey…accepting me, being hopeful, self-loving, nurturing, and open to receiving and let me tell you….
This is a daily practice. Some days are easier than others.
Have you ever made a mistake or mistakes? (I know that is a silly question) I make mistakes, I judge, I beat myself up and yet he still loves me, all with a smile. How freaking cool is that?
My love journey is loving me daily, and loving others where they are at in their journey. I feel my righteousness leave me; I feel my stress reduced and the forcing subsides…Unjust love! I feel fulfilled at this moment!
Do you think you can do this too? Let’s try this.
Peace & Love,
