Lesson 42 – God is my strength. Vision is His gift.

Keys to this Lesson
Two powerful thoughts in today’s lesson.
Jesus states that these thoughts are of MAJOR importance.
We are also learning more about the cause and effect relationship.
You cannot fail in achieving the goal of this course.
He continues to state that we will see because it is God’s Will.
His strength gives us power.
It is His gift that offers vision.
Of ourselves we do not have the strength and the power.

We can receive His strength anytime and anywhere, no matter what seems to be occurring.
You are always at the right place at the right time.

2, 3-5 minute practice periods.
One after you wake and the other when you go to bed at night.
Wait until you can sit quietly by yourself.
Repeat the idea slowly with eyes open, looking about you.
Close your eyes and repeat the idea but more slowly.
Then try to think of nothing but thoughts that occur to you in relation to today’s lesson.

Jesus gives us these examples:

Vision must be possible. God gives truly.
God’s gifts to me must be mine, because He gave them to me.

Anything thought related to the lesson is suitable.
You may find yourself with many thoughts that are related as you practice.
If you have no thoughts come to mind, just open your eyes and repeat the idea once more while looking slowly about.
Close your eyes, repeat idea then look for related thoughts in your mind.

Step back and let the thoughts come. They will.
If it is difficult go back to instruction of open eyes, repeat and close eyes, repeat.

Practice frequently throughout the day for the shorter practice periods.

In these practices we are bringing thoughts together and teaching a unified thought system.

The more you repeat the idea today, the more you are reminding yourself of the goal of this course.
