Catholic devotional DAILY DEVOTIONS: Oct 25 'Well Grounded'

'Well Grounded'
That you, rooted and grounded in love, may have know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
- Ephesians 3:17-18, 19
Years ago, I had a severe viral flu that caused sudden bouts of swirling dizziness every day for weeks. Something happened during that frightening time that I can only remember with awe. I woke from sleep repeating something I had heard in a dream, a voice saying: "Ephesians 3." When I looked up the passage, the phrase that almost lit up on the page was "rooted and grounded in love." With the dizzy spells coming on with little warning, I felt totally ungrounded. From that time on, when suddenly off balance physically, I tried to just hang on to that love. Since then, when some kind of chaos erupts, my heart returns to that revelation of the fullness of God's presence right here and now.
Beloved God, thank you for showing us we are held safely in your love no matter how our world might be whirling.
