Just a Minute No 3
GodŐs love for us is not a general love for all
humankind. Rather it is always personal and
particular for each one. This love embraces
our whole life. There is nothing in our lives over the years that was not part of GodŐs
infinite wisdom and love.
Even the things in our life that we despise, the
things we wish had never happened. They are
all part of this strange and mysterious love.
God has no second thoughts about any of us.
We are loved just as we are, not as the person
we would like to be.
Love chose us to be as we are – and it is
precisely because we are as we are that God
works in and through us. It is in human
weakness that the power of our hidden God
can accomplish great things.
Just like human lovers who wish to spend time
alone in order to enjoy the mystery of each
other, God is all the time drawing us, claiming us,
calling us to that secret and lonely place
where lovers meet – the cave of the human
heart. God has loved, God loves and God must
love each one of us forever, just because
God is God.
