John 6:65

And he said, ‘For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father.’

The beauty you are

Deep calls to Deep; Love calls to Love.

The Love you are, Holy One, calls to the Love that is your image in us. Your Love is the core, the soul of every human being.

In every love we know, you draw us to the Love you are. Every love comes to awaken the Love you are in us that we may commune in joy with you and shine with the beauty of your grace.

We come alive in the communion of Love with Love. Our eyes glisten with love and hope. Our hearts sing songs of joy and of the Love that fills us. We become who we are … who you are in each of us.

For the Love you are shines through the veil of our fleshly existence. Our ordinary human lives—wherever we are and however we are shaped—become a holy canvas on which you paint an image of Love for all with eyes to see.

It is your pleasure, Great Love, it is your holy delight to draw us to yourself, enfold us in your embrace and light our eyes with the startled joy of discovering we are more loved, precious and wanted than we could have ever known.

It is your joy to reveal the Love you are, the Love hidden in our very souls, through our brother Jesus. You give him to us and say, “Look, this is what you are, too, an image of the joyous light and Love I Am.

“Your fear and wounds mar and hide your inner beauty, which will shine with the light of my glory if only you will come and feel what is in him. For what is in him is me, and what is in you is the Love I am.

“So come and know me. Know the Love I am. Know the light of my glory that shines in Jesus. Know I come to you in the grace of every love.

“I come that you may know me … and finally see the beauty I see in you.”

Pr. David L. Miller
