The Sun Shines on Everyone

This was a journal entry after giving birth to Eliza, and trying to make sense of my suffering through the pregnancy.

"The Sun shines on everyone.
When it rains, it rains on everyone."

I listened to Snatam Kaur's song that had these lines in it. It really brought a feeling of love from God. That He sends His love to al, we are the ones that

choose if we want to accept it. Trials, or "rain", come to all, at all walks of life. "Whom the Lord liveth, he chasteneth." He loves us all, so we are equally given opportunity to be purified and proven that what we want most is God. The Lord wants to purify our hearts so that we may be clean and pure and return to Him. Love is His motive.

Surrendering, and the mind set of 'thy will, not mine' may be one of the most important lessons we learn in this life. When it 'hurts' our heart strings are being pulled and ripping. Our heart strings are our attachments to anything other than God. If you fight this purifying, and resist the removal of your  "heart strings" you can easily become bitter, angry, depressed, etc. When you surrender to God, no matter how painful, or uncomfortable, He will heal your heart and take the internal pain away. Thereby your heart becomes as gold, pure and clean, firmly attached to Him. And if I want to obtain His promised blessings, then it is required to be firmly attached to Him."
