"Still happier are those who hear the Word of God and keep it." Luke 11 : 27

God created us out of love.  He loves each one with an everlasting love.  Each of us is special to God.  We don’t have to earn God’s love.  It is given to us freely,  gratuitously.   We are unique.   No one else in the world is quite like any one else.  Our creator God is the source of our life.  It is to God we return when our earthly pilgrimage comes to end.  St. Augustine said; “We are made for you, O Lord and our hearts will never rest until they rest in you.”   We are totally dependent on God.  By prayer we keep in touch with him.  That is our life line to God.  It helps us to grow into the kind of people God wants us to be.   Deep down each person has a hunger for love that only God can fully satisfy.   After all we are created by God,  through him,  in him and for him.

When we fall on our journey we must never despair.  God is there to help us pick up the pieces and start again.  Nothing in the whole world can ever separate us from the love God has for us.  For nothing is impossible to God.   God created our world.  He made it holy.  All creation is therefore holy and that includes us privileged creatures.  He made this world for us to live in and to enjoy.  We must endeavour not to misuse it for our own benefit.   Our world keeps on revolving round the sun.  Day follows night.  The seasons follow each other.  Who but a fool could ever imagine that anyone other than God could have created such a beautiful world for our use and benefit?

"Oh Lord, how happy are those who hear your word and keep it." Amen
