Luke 12:27-28, 31

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith ... Instead, strive for his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.


I know what you want me to know, Holy One.

Come away with me, you say. Look around. Be where you are, wherever you are ... and breathe. For you and with me.

Breathe in the air of knowing there is One who loves you more than you can possibly comprehend.

Breathe in the air of freedom that is the Love I am for you. Always for you. Always will be.

Release all fevered thoughts and worries about who you are, about what you have done or failed to do, about what the future holds or about everything you think you must do. Most of those musts are self-imposed. Let go of them.

For that is not life. Life is knowing this Love, abiding, resting, feeling this Love around and within you.

Life is settling into the present moment, living what is, doing what the moment requires, then moving on, knowing that is enough. Life is knowing there is One who smiles on your very existence, eager to hear you laugh at the simple joy of being alive.

It is feeling yourself inside, surrounded and held by an Everlasting Love, knowing that you inhale this Love with every breath you take.

This is what you want me to know. This is what you want for everyone. Today.

Pr. David L. Miller
