    Praise be to God, who sent forth his word: not only of a new and everlasting covenant but also of Himself through His only begotten Son. That through His sacrifice at the cross and His resurrection we have the Grace needed to live life knowing that we are His beloved.

    What this means to me is that God is the creator of everything. Every individual, every emotion and everything that works together to push everything forward into the appropriate direction. Until we fully understand that everything that is of existence is in God's hand, we will continue to live in fear of the unknown, not trusting that God knows all, and has everything under control.
