There is nothing in this world whoch is worth your tears. If you want to shed tears, it should be sweet tears of gratitude, of amazement, of love.
Prayer is not asking. It is gratitude; a recognition of the huge tidal waves of love that God is pouring on you every moment.
If you are grateful, gratitude will increase in you & you will be given more.
Anything that comes to you not just by your effort and not because you qualify, you can consider it a gift; as grace. And grace grows by gratitude. When you demand there is no grace, but when you are grateful it comes in abundance.
Love is preserved by wisdom, destroyed by demand, tested by doubt, nourished by longing. It blossoms with faith and grows with gratitude. Love is the essence of the universe. Love in action is service. You are Love!
