Praying about your future

When praying about the future and the need to make important decisions, I love praying with these 3 ideas:

  • He knows the angels that you need, And sends them to your side, To comfort, guard and guide.1
  • God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment.2
  • For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.4

I love to think of God’s angels as divine messages that we need at just the right moment. They supply us with peace, comfort, health, safety, and also meet our daily needs.

These angel messages counteract messages of doubt, despair, or lack. They assure us that we are at one with Christ, the true idea of God; that we are inseparable from God’s love and care. These ideas lead us and guide us to the best way to express that Truth in a way that blesses.

St. Paul was very sure of his inseparability from God, good. He said:

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.4

And what was he able to do with that understanding? He was saved during a shipwreck, healed of a snakebite, and able to help and heal others. God has given each us the power, ability, and understanding to follow Him/Her with confidence, joy, clarity, and courage.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.5

Dwell in the consciousness of God’s love

We all want to have a consciousness that is safe, at peace, and free from distractions and disturbances. We can have this! We can cultivate this. We can have a safe, mental space that is free to be at peace, to walk securely with God, divine Love, and to know our unchangeable oneness with God.

This consciousness is spiritual. It’s Source is God. We have this Mind because we are at one with God right now.

For in him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28 

This Source is the only true Consciousness. A limited consciousness that is upset, fatigued, careless, etc. doesn’t belong to us. The one true Consciousness is totally at peace because it is the one Ego, the great I AM. We can be at one with this Consciousness now, and, in reality, we always are. We feel this oneness by opening up our minds to hearing what God, good, is saying right now. Messages of peace and comfort; messages saying I love you, you are my “beloved son/daughter in whom I am well pleased”.

God is constantly pouring in these messages of peace and love, which counteract stress, anxiety, and lift us up from whatever situation we may be going through.

Take moments each day to feel the power and comfort of divine Love, your one true Consciousness, in whom you live, move and have your being. Divine Love wants to hold you up, wants to be revealed to you, and wants to “bear you up on eagle’s wings”.

Dwell in the consciousness of this eternal hug and know your Father-Mother God is embracing you right now.

Loving our next door neighbors

We’ve all had “those” neighbors, I’m sure. The ones who move in and seem to disrupt our routine, our quiet, our peace, etc. We had those neighbors, too. But then they did a surprising act of kindness, and this one positive interaction with them completely changed our perspective. They were the Good Samaritans helping us with car trouble, and we were given the opportunity to learn more humility, grace, and understanding from the experience. Now we have a relationship based on appreciation for one another. Have you had an experience like this, too?

You can read about this experience in my recent article for The Christian Science Monitor.
