Love Attracts Love

Almost twenty years ago, during a challenging and  dark time in my life, I moved to a city where I knew no one.  During this time, I visited a downtown Church which I found very unfriendly.  In looking back, during the year I visited I sat at the back and left immediately following the benediction.  Several years passed before returning to this Church due to a move which was nearby and it made sense for me to go there.  This time I became involved with different committees and stayed after Church each service to say “Hello” and be greeted as well.

Without a doubt, this Church became so important in my Life and I made lifetime friends there.  Several years ago, I moved again and have a new Church but continue with relationships formed there and also, attend when we are in the area.  How on earth could I have ever thought this Church unfriendly?  I know how.  I was so closed-minded and scared of being hurt, that I couldn’t see or feel the Love surrounding me.

Psalm 13:5 states “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.”  My heart fills with humility and gratitude as I realize that I have never been separated from God and never will.
