Block out the noise

I love this scene in the movie Race (2016). It shows us how clearly we want to stay tuned in to God, divine Love, and the messages God is communicating to us, and tuned out to evil, negativity, fears that the world tries to impose on us. We all have that capability to stay tuned in to God. God’s messages are ones of fearlessness, strength, poise, gentleness, inspiration, and calm. They counteract chaos and fear with the sweet assurance of knowing we are as God’s beloved children.

Jesus referred to this as going into your closet and shutting the door to pray (Matthew 6:6). We want to close out all those other voices — the world, the doubts, etc. — leave them outside the door. Don’t take them in to that prayer closet with you. You want to be so still, so quiet, that you can hear God’s angel thoughts speaking directly to you telling you that you are calm, safe, loved, cared for, worthy; telling you how much God loves you.

The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Psalms 93:4

When we glimpse God’s love it’s like the radiant sun that melts our doubts and fears away. This is the “secret place of the Most High” (that Psalm 91 mentions) where want to dwell mentally. And we can take that “secret place” with us in our workplace, the grocery store, our homes. This is where we hear and feel God telling us that we are children of our loved divine Father-Mother, made in Spirit’s image and likeness. We can see those around us as dwelling in that secret place as well, whether or not they recognize it. In this way we glimpse God’s love as a comforting embrace where we all live and move together.

Through the love of God our Saviour
All will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor;
All must be well;
Precious is the Love that healed us,
Perfect is the grace that sealed us,
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us;
All, all is well.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 350)
