37th Day of Lent
Wednesday, April 4, 2012
God is guiding me and loving me through every experience.
Remember, Jesus has made the great discovery of our Divinity. He is trying to help us realize that there is always a depth-potential of strength within us even in times of weakness. He is telling us that if we find ourselves upset over something another person has said or done, our upset indicates that we have been in the wrong state of consciousness. To react to it in this same state of mind only compounds the problem withion us.
Jesus said, Turn to the other side of your nature. You are both human and Divine. There is that in you that can never be hurt, that is always poised and peaceful, that knows your spiritual unity with God and knows that no one can take your good from you. In this Divine state of consciousness, the hurt is healed, the influence of the other person on you is nullified and you become a healing influence on that person.
Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory ... in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
