We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking, only to learn that it is God who is shaking them.

If today were my and I could share 500 words of brilliance with the world, here are the important things I'd want to pass along to others...
CHOOSE LOVE IN EVERY MOMENT
Your every thought, word, and deed springs from either love or fear. The nature of your choices determines the quality of your life.
Love is the voice of your conscience, the whisper of the divine. Fear expresses itself as anger, intimidation, judgment, self-loathing, or any other emotion or behavior not grounded in love.
When you choose love, you are coming from your heart and declaring that you to handle the consequences. When you choose fear, you are coming from your head and announcing that you can manage the situation better than God can.
Choose love, and you are being proactive. You are making things happen, living a life of choice, and getting better. Choose fear, and you are being reactive. You are letting things happen, living a life of chance, and getting bitter.
Choose fear, and peace remains a stranger. Choose love, and peace gathers you tenderly in its arms.
Love is the language of God. As a child...
