God is For Us

I’m looking out my window at this moment, on Wednesday morning, joyful for the clear skies and bright sunlight. It’s quiet outside, as well, allowing for increased awareness that nature is continuing on, not subject to the quarantine we are honoring. That birds are flying, squirrels are running, and the sun and stars continue to shine is testament that God’s universe continues to evolve despite our own personal challenges. Our lives may feel “on-hold,” but, in Reality, we continue onward.

Yet, the blinds on my window, at times, resemble bars of a jail cell. Like so many, I can feel trapped, limited, and without power to shape my own destiny.

Until I turn to God.

God is not asking for anything from me but to ask It for guidance. To seek and find what is MINE to do at this time. And what is mine to do may or may not be what I expect it to be. But, as long as I honor that which is in the highest good, I know that my path will ultimately be for goodness. No matter the pain and discomfort of the journey, the outcome is for the greater good as long as I Let God.

The reason I know this is that I am God’s child. We all are the Child of God. God, the Divine Presence, is only Love and nothing else. As a loving parent, God only wants what is perfect for us, and will help us manifest that perfection as a gentle, guiding presence.

I know this, also, because of what our Way-Shower taught us so many years ago. And what has been also taught by the incredible avatars and way-showers throughout our mortal history.

This Sunday, our message is “Setting a Trap for God,” based on the incredible book by Rocco Enrico. In this book, he dissects the Aramaic version of the Lord’s Prayer and reveals to us how this prayer allows God to come into our lives more fully, completely, and lovingly. When we pray, we set out the means by which we allow God to come to us. And in that act, we learn from God what is ours to do.

Join us on Sunday, online, and let’s discover, together, that which is for us.
