(Excerpt from The Book of Wisdom by Reginald O’Neal Gibson)
Please know that God loves us unconditionally and in a perfect way. The depth of his mysterious ways are of no full understanding to mankind, but he loves us regardless of our comprehension. He has given us the breath of life through the nostrils of eternal wisdom. Peace is upon us as she blankets the earth as our comforter; forever protecting us from the frigidness that dwells within the night. God gave of his only begotten son for our salvation and in this act of love, broke the chains of hell; setting us free from the clutches of the opposer.
We all have what is needed for the fulfillment of life’s greatest purpose but as it stands, the human race continues to fall within the calamities of worldly lusts. The mislead prides around in hunger, stumbling in the darkness of fallacious love; only to settle for a resemblance of what is desired to be true. Love in personal success, love in wealth over others, love in the absence of lucidity and what some have fallen to believe, as the lusting love of the flesh.
Remember the cleansing of our sins upon repentance, is all that is needed in the belief that you are born again; in his love. But remember you are created in his image, so love yourself with reverence of all sins forgotten, laid to waste and never to return. We need only to accept God’s love as our own. With this understanding, we must submit to our creator in reverence to his word. Thereby falling in love with the perfection of his creation; which is you.
Love yourself more in God than in mankind’s opinion of your worth. Love yourself enough through the difficult times of doubt, remembering the sun without fail will rise again. Love yourself in the highest regard, not to submit to anyone or anything less than your created purpose. Just keep pressing forward, believe in the absolute of this universal law and in the greater meaning of your life.
Now go forth in confidence, press on towards your greatness and above all, love yourself enough to honor the effort God bestowed within you. Take this as the bread of life, hunger no more and dive deep; immersing yourself within the endless depth of his love.
