Daily Meditation: Love Is Salvation

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a song by soul legend Al Green. "Jesus Is Waiting" is a song of hope -- that we must never bear our hardships alone and that love may be the truest salvation. 

Jesus Is Waiting by Al Green

Jesus is waiting
If you're broken down
Jesus is waiting, hey yeah
Don't let yourself down

He standing right there behind you
Helping you to make up your mind
Jesus is waiting, hey
Do I have to say it again (say it again)
Jesus is waiting, hey

Talking 'bout, you've got a friend
Reach down in your heart and say
A little prayer just for me
He's the one that believes in love
Can't you see

Hey
Just saying
Jesus is waiting
Love is the only salvation
Understand me
Jesus is waiting
Love is the only medication
Understand me
Help me, help me

I want you to help me
And I'll help you,
Save my soul
I'll save some for you
I'll do my best
Do what I can to
Stand up and be a man
I said hey

I just want everybody to, everybody to know that
Jesus is waiting, hey
Jesus is waiting
Jesus is waiting
Jesus is waiting
I wish the band would just reggae

I remember that I had to
Say that I had been a fool
Disregarding your love
I wanna say that it
That, I'm sorry
But I tell ya
You've been good to me
You've been good to me
You've been good to me

Thank you, thank you
