A conversation with God

God is always speaking to us. Not that God is a chatterbox. But God’s angel messages and intuitions are ALWAYS guiding, guarding and loving us. We each have a unique relationship with a precious Creator.

We are either turning away from this utterance, or we are listening to it and going up higher.

This conversation with God — this prayer that never ceases — blesses us and lifts us up.

God already knows everything that we need and is happily providing it. So we don’t need to worry about if He will or will not do that. But prayer does change us — it opens us up to hearing His messages of love, patience and healing; prayer even heals the body through thought — a spiritual consciousness which is then manifest on the body as perfection, health and wholeness.

Prayer also guides and protects; we have all heard of countless instances of God’s protecting love guiding humans when and when not to do or say something.

What about the perpetrators of violence? Terrorists? Yes, all are capable of hearing the “still, small voice” of Life, Truth and Love guiding and protecting everyone with a pure sense of love, a courage to do what is good, and a humble and meek spirit that is willing to listen and find peaceful solutions for all humanity.

God’s love is bigger than fear. God’s love is more present and more attractive than messages of hate, lack, bitterness, resentment and violence.

Each of us are the spiritual and pure children of God. These healthy, loving messages of God are pouring on us all the time! We have to tune out the “static” and tune in to God. Then we will see everyone as rightly governed by God — our natural, normal state of being.

Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love.

So let’s all tune in to the messages of Love that come from God and that lead us to a feeling of peace and reveal solutions.

Does force do us any good?

Embed from Getty Images

I was reading a news article in which one leader of a country was saying the only way to accomplish its goals was required through force.

I questioned this conclusion. Really…is the only way to accomplish something through force? Has any good thing every been accomplished by human force? We can’t force the sun to rise or set; we can’t force a flower to open; we can’t force a baby to go to sleep.

In fact, I would say that we can’t really “force” any thing good to happen. There is the old Christian sentiment: Let go and let God.

God is the force, will and love the causes things to happen. This force of good is always active, always present and is always working for the benefit of everyone. We can’t make it happen; it is already happening; we are simply a witness to this fact (witnessing isn’t a passive thing; it is actively seeing the facts of spiritual reality — the truth about God and man’s relationship).

Here’s an example: I was trying to put our baby down, but he just wasn’t going to sleep. I was really trying to make it happen (this rocking will be soothing!). He immediately did fall asleep, though, when I changed my thinking — when I witnessed the harmony of that moment. What could I be doing during that time? Praying! I had some praying to do, so I decided that was as good of a time as any, I’d better get started. He fell asleep right away. The truth about that moment was that I have a purpose and so does he. Our purpose’s can not interfere or take away from one another. And they didn’t!

I couldn’t force him to go to sleep, but I could be a witness to the spiritual facts of that moment: all is harmonious, all is peaceful, complete, and we are not deprived of anything (since divine Love supplies all).

Perhaps these leaders may have had to put a baby down to sleep at one time. Maybe they can then recognize that the same tenderness, patience and gentleness is required in their relations to others.

The US and Syria

When I heard about the tragic events in Syria, and the debate over whether or not America should respond by military strike, I was troubled.

Being such a complex issue, one wants to be sure they have all the facts straight. I know how I feel about the issue personally, but I also know that God governs with greater intelligence, wisdom, justice, mercy, and love than I can.

I pray to see that God is in control and that God governs us with reason. The divine is so much higher than mortal wills and emotions.

One can never be afraid when working towards a decision that is the result of wisdom, integrity and grace. Whatever direction is received through divine wisdom — and reflects more of the qualities of the Kingdom of Heaven such as grace, peace, and love — can be followed fearlessly.

As I follow this issue on CSMonitor.com, I continue to pray to know that regardless of the human outcome, God’s love, compassion and health-giving power can be seen and felt by all.
