Nearly a week since we

Began

Anew

.

Wondering,

Souljourner,

how all of this feels to you?

*

Are you beginning to notice less noise?

Are you taking time to Practice the Presence?

Are you seeking clarity regarding your

Spiritual

?

Are  you beginning to recognize

that

ALL

that

 you

need

IS

{always has been}

right

where

YOU

are

?

Are you beginning

to

realize

that there is

NO-thing

separating you from

God

but

false belief

?

And,

if you are here to be

a

unique expression of God

&

{you are here to do this}

then

do

you

see

how

worthy

you

are

?

Do you see

how

splendid

you

are

?

And

this splendor is not yours alone,

souljourner,

for

each

&

every

ONE

of us are made of the same stuff.

God.

Purely.

Simply.

God.

So how can I not be worthy of God?

How can I not be good enough for God,

when that which I am,

is

God

.

No, I am not God,

but I am the only way in which God can, does,

express on this earth.

Phewww.

What freedom in this!

Let’s take time to recognize this through prayer.

*

In this sacred moment of time.

This precious moment called now

my desire is to recognize that God and I are One.

God is in around and through me

God is in, around and through everything and everyone!

God is the Divine Essence of all.

There is NO-thing that can separate me from this.

 God and I are One

&

In this Oneness

I hear God speak.

In this Oneness

I hear God direct.

In this Oneness

I hear God say,

let go,

beloved.

Allow me to BE.

Allow me to BE

the Divine expression that comes forth through thee.

I allow God’s voice to be heard.

I allow God’s expression to come forth.

I am open to receive.

I am open to accept my divine inheritance.

I am One with the One.

{Be still & know, my friend. Right where you are God is. Relax. Receive.}

I give thanks,

for this infinite gift of Oneness that is my Truth of Being.

I give thanks,

for my increasing awareness of this.

I give thanks for the recognition that the only way that I can glorify God

is as I boldly  accept my truth.

I let go of my thoughts

the thoughts which limit me

  &

allow God thoughts to be heard.

To be expressed through me.

It is with joy that I accept this Oneness with God.

It is with joy that I expand this awareness of God within me right now.

I let go and let God

I

Begin

Anew

and so it is.

Are you Practicing this Presence throughout your day?

Tuning into the divine circuit that provides all?

You must if your personal resolve is to experience oneness with God.

It is only through the Practice of the Presence of God that

true peace is known.

*

In this spirit of Oneness I encourage you to read the Epistle of James;

the passage I have chosen for us to reflect upon is in the 4th chapter, the 8th verse:

“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you”

*

As you take time to “draw nigh to God”, to meditate upon this passage,

I invite you to open your hearts to the awareness of God’s Presence.

Do you have to “call” that Presence to you?

Is it somewhere out there or is it nigh always?

Reflect upon the true meaning of this.

*

In this complete peace that is yours right now

journal about your feelings:  the thoughts, the songs, the verses,

the words that came forth

as you chose to be in this glorious state of oneness with God.

*

{Remember, this is the state of Grace: infinitely available to you!}

*

How is this time that you are taking for God showing up in your life?

What changes are you noticing?

Reflect upon  the question asked in the beginning:

is there less noise?

How can you abide in this sweet essence all the day long?

Is this sweet essence God?

And if this essence is God desiring to express through you,

are beginning to see just how precious you are?

Are you beginning to see the delight God feels as you allow this Oneness with Him to BE?

*

Here are my thoughts regarding the verse in James. 

Do you know what happens to me when I do not take the time to begin my day becoming “nigh to God?”

When I do not choose to  literally “feel” the connection,

the Omnipresence, the Omnipotence, the Omniscience

of God?

My day goes amiss.

Period.

Why?

Because I am relying upon “my” understanding,

upon “my” limited wisdom,

upon “my” phobia’s and fears.

But, as it says in the Epistle of  James,

my interpretation

as I draw nigh to God {4:8} I am allowing the wisdom {1:5} of the Omniscient One

to guide, guard, govern my day!

When I connect with the One

when I allow this One

to provide all of my needs,

Grace

is

my sufficiency,

I

am

at

peace.

Of course, throughout the day, I have the choice to “be aware”

to be conscious of this Presence

this “nighness” of God

and it is in this continuous awareness that the harmonious day unfolds

but it is essential to

BEGIN

the

day

aright.

To

BEGIN

the

day

with

God.

To

BEGIN

Anew.

Once you feel this connection to God, you cannot go without it!

It is like having your very best friend, attached at the hip, all of the time.

Cheering you on!

It is glorious!

It is magnificent!

It is God!

Please, my friend. Practice the Presence.

Become nigh to God.

Live in Grace.

Accept the Magnificent

Expression

  You

Are

!

*

Thank you, O’ lover of our souls,

for this increasing awareness that you are indeed our  best friend,

that your desire is for us to recognize

that we truly are attached at the hip,

we are

{One with the One}

and all that we need do is become aware,

tune into,

Your Grace.

Our Sufficiency.

It Guides.  It Governs.  It Guards

us

this day

 &

so it is

!
