My darling 4-year old overheard me ask my husband for prayerful support. He wanted to jump in and offer his help, too.
Pray to God and ask Him to take your fear away.
Read this book…(hands me a book about God)
Be quiet so Mommy can pray and listen to God (he tells my husband)
Is your fear gone now?
(Me: yes it’s going away)
Now just express God so your fears won’t come back.
Thats what I do.
Keep your door shut. Does your door* keep out a lot of fears?
Mine too. Mine keeps out lots of fears.
Referring to being a porter at the “door of thought” (a reference by Mary Baker Eddy in her book Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures).
You are loved.
You are needed.
You have a holy origin.
You are made in the image and likeness of God, good.
You are special. God delights in you. She rejoices that She made you.
These are the messages that matter.
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of advertisements of sexuality, violence, and disease that run rampant in today’s media that we are instead reminded of our inherent worth as God’s image and likeness? Wouldn’t it be nice to receive reminders and affirmations to love one another and see the child of God in each of us? Just as we treat children with such tenderness, we can also nurture the child within each of us that hopes for and desires the eternal love of an all good Mom/Dad, that Jesus called “Abba”, Daddy.
You are sinless, you are eternal. Reminding ourselves of how our Creator makes us and sees us enables us to be a healer everyday, whether we are participating in larger actions of restorative justice or simply being faithful over the little things we can do each day.
We are made to heal because we reflect the heart of God. We are made to bind up the brokenhearted. We are made to wash each others feet with our tears.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
Isaiah 61:1 ESV
Sometimes, I feel like I must have it all figured out in order to be able to help someone or even to take a step forward in my life. But it is really God, the divine Source, who is providing the answers and healing for me and all.
God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
It’s so comforting to know that God, divine Spirit, is the source of our strength and our supply. We have strength, supply, order, harmony, beauty and goodness because we reflect God. After all, Jesus said that he couldn’t do anything without God (John 5:30).
Every human thought must turn instinctively to the divine Mind as its sole centre and intelligence.
God is the Source of intelligence. God is the Source of good ideas and action. God is the Source of love and compassion. In other words, can we do anything without Him/Her? If you need a creative solution for a project, God provides it. If you need a resolution and harmony in a relationship, God will provide it. God, divine Mind, will provide everything we need, no matter how big or small. Here are 6 ways to cultivate your innate assurance of God’s care and they make all the difference:
- Turn to God in prayer (multiple times each day)
- Get acquainted with God’s Word, and other inspiring texts, through a daily study of them
- Listen for the still small voice of divine intuition leading you
- Have an open and receptive heart to new ideas
- Have patience 🙂
- Live love
Be still, and know that I am God!
