We Are Loved...

We Are Loved By An Unending Love

We are loved by an unending love.

We are embraced by arms that find us
even when we are hidden from ourselves.
We are touched by fingers that soothe us
even when we are too proud for soothing.
We are counseled by voices that guide us
even when we are too embittered to hear.
We are loved by an unending love.

We are supported by hands that uplift useven in the midst of a fall.
We are urged on by eyes that meet useven when we are too weak for meeting.
We are loved by an unendinglove.

Embraced, touched, soothed, and counseled,
Ours are the arms, the fingers, the voices;
Ours are the hands, the eyes, the smiles;
We are loved by an unending love.

~Rabbi Rami Shapiro

You are loved by an unending love. It doesn’t always feel that way though, does it? God invites us to be part of that unending love – to be God’s arms, fingers, voices, hands, eyes, smiles. Could we each dare to join God in the circle of unending love? Could I share that love even when I don’t feel it?

Gracious God, fill us with your Spirit so that we may join you in blessing one another with your unending love, amen.
