ADVENT 2012 (Friday, December 14, 2012)

     Be still. Be still. Be still. God in the midst of you is substance. God in the midst of you is love. God in the midst of you is wisdom. Let not your thoughts be given to lack, but let wisdom fill them with the substance and faith of God. Let not your heart be a center of resentment and fear and doubt. Be still and know that at this moment it is the altar of God, of love; love so sure and unfailing, love so irresistible and magnetic that it draws your supply to you from the great storehouse of the universe. Trust God, use God's wisdom, prove and express God's love.
     As you come out of the Silence, count your blessings and give thanks for them. Realize that only good exists in you and in your world, that the power you contacted in the Silence may have opportunity to multiply and increase your blessings. Give thanks that you have already received the good for which you looked to God in the Silence, feeling the assurance, "Before they call I will answer, while they are yet speaking I will hear" (Isaiah 65:24)
In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. --- Luke 2:8
