Do you sometimes feel like the quest for your true self and the realisation of your dreams and all you know to be True, is a journey of two steps forward and one step backwards? I do.

Truth be told, this happens more often than ‘sometimes’ and not always just one step backwards. Perhaps you feel right now that you are not making progress, stuck in a rut or even regressing.

Do not despair, for ultimately the trajectory of life, all life, including yours, is forward and upwards!

Consider a magnetic compass. The compass needle always points due north. It may flicker and waver, but ultimately it always settles in the direction of the North Pole.

Your desire for God, is God’s desire for you.

Your desire for good, is good’s desire for you.

Your desire for success, is success’ desire for you.

Your desire for life, is life’s desire for you.

Your desire for Love, is Love’s desire for you.

Love never fails. It might be battered, delayed, even denied. But it never fails. It never dies. Love is life itself. Love is all that really Is. Everything else is fleeting, temporary in illusionary time.

Love has you, for the Greater One dwells in you.

Therefore, let us be kinder, more patient and forgiving of our perceived struggles, faults and follies. Grace is on our side and Love wins, always, ultimately.

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed

2 Corinthians 4:8-9
