The way of the Lord is the way of passionate love. It is about fully knowing that we do, indeed, belong to the Beloved, and that his desire is for us. Once we experience that, once we receive his kiss, the kisses of others simply will not do. All other loves will pale in comparison to his love. And it will change everything about us.
O my Beloved, thank you that I belong to you and that your desire is for me. Help me to live from that place of love and belonging and delight, this day and every day. Amen.
