God in His mercy wills that I be saved.
It is focus, persistence and vigilance that will assist me in the goal for today’s Lesson. It seems rather artificial at first, especially if I am feeling downright hurt, angry and victimized. What do you mean that all I need to do is look upon all these stupid things that hurt me and say “God wills that I be saved from this?” Who the heck are you kidding?
But yet with focus, I truly will see that He does will that I be saved from what my mind has created to disrupt my peace. The ego does not want my happiness and so it distracts and turns my attention away from the Will of God. God’s Will is only happiness for me.
How do I do this when I am in the thick of the emotions? When it seems that no matter what I do I cannot shake loose these feelings of unworthiness, or inadequacy , or anger, or whatever they may be at the time?
I can call a friend, a minister, a counselor. I can write and write and write in a journal, using the concept of the “3 page rule” where I keep writing for at least 3 full pages. I can talk to Holy Spirit in my mind or through the mentioned forms.
