I am sustained by the Love of God.
Excerpt from Lesson 50 from our book Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages
Rev. Deb’s Message
In a day of feeling very ill, I was at first anxious and felt guilty because I could not follow through with the commitments that I had scheduled for the day. I tried to figure out what remedy, natural or over-the-counter, would make all the symptoms go away. In looking at my thoughts when the symptoms started, I could not find the defining “a-ha” thought that caused this seeming ill effect. That disturbed my peace more. I find as I go through these symptoms that it is an approach of gentleness that I need to take with myself. I do not need to sit and continue to analyze why I am feeling as physically bad as I do when the day before I was perfectly healthy. That is the ego that wants to analyze and keep me distracted. As this Lesson indicates, “Put not your faith in illusions. They will fail you.” This means to me to let go of trying to find the “right” solution either through searching my mind or using magic pills. As the Lesson continues, “Put all your faith in the Love of God within you; eternal, changeless and forever unfailing.” I can resolve everything that I am feeling by remembering my Source, my Creator, and my Comforter.
In quiet space with the Holy Spirit, I can give to Him all of what I am feeling; the guilt, the anxiety, the sense of helplessness, the sadness and the physical symptoms. I can stop ruminating about it all in my mind, “Why has this occurred?” and just drop the focus on the physical and focus on what He would have me know. (It’s perfectly okay to use medicine or natural remedies, of course, as there is no need to suffer.)
