“Sometimes we are called to proclaim God’s love even when we are not yet fully able to live it. Does that mean we are hypocrites? Only when our own words no longer call us to conversion. Nobody completely lives up to his or her own ideals and visions. But by proclaiming our ideals and visions with great conviction and great humility, we may gradually grow into the truth we speak.” — Henri Nouwen [Source: Daily Meditation June 21, 2013 http://www.henrinouwen.org/]

An Affirmation for Today

I AM a walking example of God’s Love.

Affirmations are positive statements that describe how you want things to be.  Repeat affirmations often and they begin to work on the subconscious mind bringing it to positive action.  They must be repeated with attention, interest, faith and desire to be effective.

So, today let’s focus on the statement I AM a walking example of God’s Love.  It doesn’t matter if you know you fall short.  Repeating this statement often will keep your attention focused on being an example of God’s love.  When you are tempted to say or do something not so loving, the words will be there guiding you.
