THE GREATEST ACT OF GRACE

Let us forget with generosity those who cannot love us ~ Pablo Neruda

Know this: Some people will not hear you regardless how much, how loud, how truthful, how loving or how profound you speak…

It’s true, there will be those who cannot love you. In fact they cannot tolerate you. Your very existence bothers them. It could be the way in which you speak, the things you love, the opportunity you seized or the faith you practice. It could be the fire and passion inside of you that drives them crazy. It could be the way you smile, the things you talk about, the friends who love you. Gosh, it could even be your dreams.

Or maybe it’s them…Maybe they cannot love you because you somehow make them less than. They feel threatened or intimidated by you. The possible reasons are endless and no matter how much love you radiate into the world and into those around you, there will always be those who cannot see it or refuse to see it.

THE GREATEST ACT OF GRACE is forgiving them and being resilient even in the face of adversity. People are all kinds of complicated and life is all kinds of tough. Try not to care about what people think. Don’t place value in the criticism of those who are neither constructive nor relevant. The best source of action when faced with any challenge is to change your thinking about. Give it a positive spin. And find gratitude in all things. And ALWAYS remember to be KIND!

“…and if I have faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians: 13:2

Will you challenge yourself to love more intentionally!😊❀

Blessings and Love…😊

  1. Not only others, but also myself failing to absorb other’s messages to me. This is how I know this is so true. There have been times people are trying to get a message through to me and I simply cannot comprehend it. Instead I think they must be wrong because I can’t see how they could be right. Then later, I hear their words in my mind, I remember what they’ve said and I’m always quite shocked when they’re right. Not always, but sometimes. The point is, it’s not that I didn’t want to understand them, I always want to understand, but for some reason I simply couldn’t until later.

  2. You cant please everyone. That’s completely okay. This is an area where the Golden Rule applies. That person refuses to be kind to you.You must allow yourself to walk away from them. Life is too short to try to please others and you can literally ruin your own life trying to please others.

  3. I needed to see this today. Thank you so much. I constantly remind myself that in order to move forward in my life, I have to pay attention to my heart, and the love that comes out of it. You cannot fail with love in your heart, even if others want or hope you do.

    I won’t lie, it is hard for me sometimes; but I think in my healing I have learned that anger, rage, and listening to others opinions about my life does nothing but keep me spinning.

    The love in me grounds me. I am grateful to still be able to feel it.

    Thank you so much for this post. Enjoy your day. πŸ™‚
