Blessed

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    Blessed are the poor in spirit          for theirs is the realm of heaven.                            —Matthew 5.3

When you have nothing          then God fills your life.

When you are powerless          there is nothing but the infinite power of God.

When you are stripped naked          you are clothed in the glory God gave you.

It is in darkness and chaos          that God creates.

When you are on the cross,          you are where God saves; when you are in the grave,          you are where God raises us up.

When you are weak and discouraged, alone and hurting, in that lowest place,          you are in the very place where Christ comes:          you are accompanied;          you are blessed.

What we most fear is all we desire:          to lose everything,          falling in love until all we have is love          and the Beloved.

Empty your life          and all will be God.

          Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
