It’s everyday occurrences where the vigilance needs to be so I may learn trust in God. In recent situations, those initial feelings I had that rose to the surface really ran the whole gamut of every emotion imaginable. Yet here is today’s lesson, proud and strong, teaching me to not rely on my own strength. How perfect it i!

If I place my trust in my own strength well no wonder why I have fear, anxiety, and everything in between, right? That’s what Jesus says here! So a few deep breaths after the initial shock, inhale and exhale, and I am regrounded. God is my safety. If I slow myself down and listen to His Voice, I will be comforted and know I am not alone in my challenges.

When we are told to practice this and we do, the emotions and thoughts begin to simmer down and quiet as we are in the presence of the Holy Spirit. I imagined today a beautifully lit candle in my mind with which to place my focus. It gave me the encouragement to know the light is within me and I can trust God completely in my life.

And so I repeat again, “God is the strength in which I trust.”

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
