Lesson 222

 

God is with me. I live and move in Him.

 

There is a verse in the Bible that says “In Him I live and move and have my being.” I try to spiritually connect with every part of life around me for everywhere I go there God is. One of my favorite parts of the summer is going to our family’s campsite in Jackman, Maine. Jackman is close to the Canadian border and is just a dot on the map. Jackman has a population around 700 people. Jackman is known for the rivers, trails, wildlife, fishing, and more. I feel connected to my Source in many places, but Jackman is a favorite place of mine where I love to go to connect and center myself. I can see my Source in the flowing streams, the majestic trees, I feel my Source in the air I breathe. It reminds me that everywhere I go God is with me. I love it there because it’s quite, nothing there to distract me. It is just my Source and I. Being in that setting is comforting to me, it is a place where I am renewed, refreshed, and cleansed; it’s a majestic place to “un-plug” and I can hear The Holy Spirit clearly directing me and sharing His thoughts with me in the stillness, quite, and surroundings of the nature. “How still is he who knows the truth of what He speaks today!” It at that tiny campsite that I am able to still myself and feel myself being covered kindness, love, and care. This lesson takes my mind to that beautiful healing place where I can clearly hear The Holy Spirit’s Guidance and rest in His Presence as I am covered with the Peace that He alone can give.

 

 

Wishing each of you the Deepest Peace,

Lesson 223

 

God is my life. I have no life but His.

 

For too many years I had been taught the false belief that I was isolated from God. I could only remember the sins I had committed to my brothers and sisters, but most of all… God. 

 

I was always taught and felt that my body was a holy and sacred temple in which my Father resides deep within the Altar of my heart and soul. I was so lonely when I was told that God was angry with me and would forever banish me from the very Heaven that was supposed to be my journeys goal. All I knew was God was angry with me and with my sin. When I think of the word “sin” and what it means to me today, it simply means I made a mistake. I love the part of this lesson that says, “…let us see the face of Christ instead of our mistakes.” I am joyous as I proclaim the Truth, “I have no other home, and I do not exist apart from Him.” Today I know that I was never apart from God, nor was I separated from my Home. My Father is always with me, He is part of me and I am part of Him. In Him I am Whole. He is my life and I acknowledge that I am His Son. 

 

Wishing each of you the Deepest Peace,

Workbook Lesson: 225

God is my Father, and His Son loves Him.

 

Lesson 225

 

God is my Father, and His Son loves Him.

 

There have been times in my life when I have found myself at a fork in the road. I can choose to go right or left, not knowing where each path will lead. 

This lesson reminds me to simply just be quiet and sit in the stillness and the way is open to me, for Jesus is a faithful friend in the in-between. It is because of my faithful friend that I return His love for me for it is in giving that I receive True Peace. 

 

I used to be afraid that somewhere along my Spiritual Path I would become separated from my Father, but He assures me fear is behind me and to together in peace do we follow. My Father offers me the sweet assurance that He will never leave me, for I have reached out my hand to Him and He will never leave me. 

 

I know that if I seek the Guidance of The Holy Spirit and my Father the way to choose the path in the fork in the road is made clear. The promises my Father made to me make it so. His promises are not in vain. He has promised His hand to lead me on which path to take in the midst of all the ego’s chatter that tries to muddle to voice of the Truth, but if I Still myself I can hear the beautiful still voice within telling me the Truth on where to go.

 

This lesson reminds me that no matter how alone I feel in any circumstances that my Father is always beside my side and I no longer have anything to fear, but only the Peace that my Father can give. Now I have total confidence in continuing my journey in full awareness of my Holiness, Strength, and Worth. 

 

If a struggle seems to creep back up into my life when a difficult decision is around the corner. I know all I need to do is proclaim, My Father’s hand is here to Guide me, He is beside me and has never left me alone and will guide me to which path will connect to the Holy purpose that my Father has led me to complete. I will complete my purpose in confidence for, “You have given all your Love to me, I must return it…” I now know the Father is always there guiding me no matter what the circumstances are surrounding me. His voice will always be there to remind me that is always beside me, and I am never alone. We are never alone the Father is always there quietly there beside us waiting us to call. I have more Peace knowing that my Father has never forgotten me and has always known my name, for I have never been apart from Him, not even for one second. How encouraging it is to hear that my Father has never forgotten me and has been waiting to lead me Home! What a Joyous thought… Reaching my goal, Heaven!

 

 

Wishing you the Deepest Peace,

 

Ryan
