New Hearts

God does not bomb us in order to get us to change our behavior. God whispers words of love. We may resort to “shock and awe” to show our power in order to get others to bend to our will, but that’s not God’s way. God gives us space and freedom to accept or reject his gentle overtures of love. God seeks a response from us that emerges from a transformed inner life that allows us to acknowledge God’s power and our need for God. God seeks a deep emotional response from us. And it is our response to God that allows us to subdue our ego and permits our true self to emerge.

This transformational change leads to a radical reorientation of our outlook on life. We will see the world and all of creation with new eyes and we will love with new hearts. Badness shall be transformed into goodness. Grace changes everything, makes everything beautiful. We simply need stillness and silence…and ears to hear.
