Soften The Heart: Devotional #5

“Do everything in love. And do everything with love. Let all that you do be done in love. Let all your things be done with charity.”

1 Corinthians 16:14

A mantra I tell myself often is, “I choose love, I am love.” Whenever I feel anxiety or anger creeping in my heart that mantra is my go to for a bit of relief.

Love is more than a feeling, to love is also a choice. And to choose love is to love however it is. Not eager to change a person for example. We choose to love them as they are. We accept them as they are. We are all so much more alike than we lead to believe. And I truly feel in some way all things are conscious in their own way. If we radiate love, the things and people that surround us will mirror that love.

But to love all things takes focus and effort, something which we can control. To open your heart to loving it all, we open a door to peace.
