Somewhere it is written “Let not your heart be troubled, neither be ye afraid, for I, thy God, am with thee always”.
God lives within each one of us.
Everyone has problems of one kind or another: ill-health; disability; unemployment or loneliness.
We all tend to dwell on our problems too much: making them seem bigger or more important; letting them take over our life. We have to think of life as a whole and put them in perspective.
Earth life is but a school for the soul. We are here to learn to overcome our difficulties, some of which we chose before we came here.
We have to realise the divinity within us, for God lives within each one of us; his strength is our strength. In getting through our problems, even though they hurt us, our soul is getting stronger and we are progressing spiritually.
So share your troubles with God. Talk to God. Talk to your spirit guides and helpers. They are there to help you and they like to be asked. They cannot interfere with your free will or take away your problems for that would be taking away your progression. But they can help by putting thoughts into your mind or by pointing you in the right direction.
Because God lives within us, He knows about all that happens to us, what we experience, wherever we go, and with whom we go; He goes too. There is nowhere on Earth that God is not. Omnipresent and omnipotent, so with all that power and protection within, we cannot be afraid.
Waste no energy in regretting past mistakes. They are behind us and nothing can ever alter them. They were part of our learning process and we were allowed to use our free will, rightly or wrongly.
The important thing is not to make the same mistakes again. Send kindly thoughts to those who wronged you. Always remember that they too are learning and may have acted out of ignorance.
Nothing goes unnoticed by God and there comes a time of retribution and compensation for all. So let the love within you rise above everything knowing that all works together for good under God’s control.
Consider the beautiful world we live in, the things we take for granted; like the rising of the sun each morning and the stars in the sky at night. These things remind us of the one who made them and us. We are made in His image and everything else He created is here for our use and enjoyment: the blue skies and sunshine of the Summer, the rain that fills rivers and streams and makes trees and flowers grow for our pleasure. We can forget our problems for a little while if we make time to look at nature. Have you ever noticed the beautiful symmetry of the humble white daisy or been transported by the wonderful colourful flowers and shrubs? Many birds have flown thousands of miles to spend the Summer in our country: swallows, martins and swifts. The song of a bird is one of the sweetest sounds on Earth.
All these things and more are put on Earth for us to enjoy. They, like us, are part of God’s creation and the beauty of them can uplift a tired spirit. So find the time to refresh your soul. “What is this life if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare.”
We all seem to concentrate too much on the material side of life, forgetting the spiritual part of us, which is the real US. We live on Earth for such a small part of our existence. Right now we are eternal spirit using a human body to experience the limitations and trials that this entails. We are here to discover what we really: part of God – perfect love. When we use this love in the service of others, we become more fulfilled and at peace with ourselves. We are becoming whole, for our mind, body and spirit are working together as God intended and good health follows.
So manifest God’s love in your everyday life: be kind to others, share a smile.
Know that God lives in everyone; then, it is easier to love those you don’t like as well as those you do. If you can’t love them, say a little prayer for them and send them light.
Realise your own divinity, your true potential and nothing need worry you again.
You are God and God is you.
Be strong, be happy and live forever.
