Loving God brings healing

When we love God with all our heart, we can expect, in turn, to feel—and to be healed by—His love.

Bugle was a tricolored beagle hound who was with our family for many years. He was generally happiest when we lowered the car window enough for his nose, or better yet his head, to protrude so he could feel the wind.

Recently, reminiscing over this behavior of our dear family pet, I realized that it contained a simple, homely lesson for me about reaching out to God. God is ever-present Love, but to feel His love we need to open the window—our thought—and reach out. How can we do that? By loving Him! Loving God is like opening the window. Effort may be required, but our love for God opens to us His love, and it always brings a sense of well-being.
