Isaiah 54:10

rainbow.327225339_std[1]Steadfastness in Love

Though the mountains leave their place . . .

This is how much God loves us and wants to be in intimate union with us. When we can allow ourselves to let go of our limiting, earthly emotions and thoughts, the depth and intensity of this potential relationship will overwhelm us.  God
alone is enough.

Though the hills be shaken . . .

This is how deeply God loves us and wants to be intertwined with us.  When we can allow ourselves to be open and vulnerable to those who need us most, the breadth and power of this invincible refuge will surround us.  God alone is enough.

My love for you shall never leave you . . .

This is how intensely God loves us and wants to be with us forever.  When we allow ourselves to cast away our small fears and gargantuan anxiety, the durability and stamina of this immense passion will overtake us.  God alone is enough.

My covenant of love with you shall never be shaken . . .

love 3[1]This is how fervently God loves us and wants to make a home with us.  When we allow ourselves to see the world from the margins of life, the compassion and justice of God’s kingdom will consume us.  God alone is enough.

Thus says the Lord who has mercy on you.

This is how ardently God loves us and wants to dwell within us.  When we allow ourselves to become disciples of Christ, the full force and gift of this union will wipe out all fear, all harm, all evil as the Spirit becomes one with us.  God alone is enough.

May we remain in God as God remains in us.  And let us give thanks for this gift of steadfastness in love that our discipleship bestows on us.

Amen.
