via Daily Prompt: Sandwich
I began looking for inspiration in photos and I found this interesting photo, with a note saying “share this sandwich with your friends if you like it.” positivemed.com
This analogy of the relationship sandwich made me reflect on Our Individual Ultimate Relationship in Life. Our relationship with God. God is Love. Experiencing Divine Love within our Soul Is Life Changing.
One of our greatest needs as human beings is to be loved. We all need love. We need to know that we are important to somebody, that somebody truly cares about us, wants us, and accepts us unconditionally. When we doubt that we are loved, we may develop unacceptable behavior patterns to compensate for it.
For example, we may act irresponsibly in a desperate attempt to get attention. Attention is a poor substitute for love but it seems better than nothing at all. We may develop physical symptoms that bring us sympathy and concern. The symptoms cause us genuine pain, but the pain of sickness is more bearable than the pain of admitting that nobody cares.
We may angrily lash out at those whom we think should care or we may try to run away from them and hide, but in either case, we are trying to protect ourselves from the hurt they are causing us by their lack of concern.
We all need to know that somebody loves us. The good news from God’s Word is that somebody does. To know Him is to find release from the crippling effects of feeling unloved.
Twice the Apostle John categorically stated that God is love (1 John 4:8,16). Love is one of the warmest words in the English language, and that God is love is one of the most sublime, uplifting, and reassuring truths known to mankind. Love is His nature. It is not merely a friendly attitude He projects. It is the essence of His being. He is always going to act toward us in love because He cannot do otherwise. Love is the way He is.
As a Child of God when we reach out to God and open our heart and lives to his Love, He envelops us with a Love that surpasses all understanding.
With Respect, Hope, Joy and Love, Carmela
Although I am many different things to many different people, my heart wishes to be identified with God, as a child of God, an individual who prays for forgiveness, guidance, to know and share unconditional love and gratitude for life. My hopes are that my writings will help to teach gratitude for life, positivity, and an awareness for making responsible choices.

Great post! There are so many people out there that have a God-shaped hole in their lives that only He can fill.
