Lesson 87 – Review 17

‘I will there be light.’

 I will use the power of my will today. It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows, and afraid of things unseen and unreal. Light shall be my guide today. I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only onwhat it shows me. This day I will experience the peace of true perception.
Specific applications of this idea include:

This cannot hide the light I will to see.
You stand with me in light (name)
In the light this will look different.

 ‘There is no will but God’s.’

 I am safe today because there is no will but God’s I can  become afraid only when I believe there is another will. I try to attack only when I’m afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my external safety is threatened. Today I will recognise that all this has not occurred. I am safe because there is no will but God’s.
Specific applications of this idea include:

Let me perceive this in accordance with the will of God.
It is God’s will you are His Son, (name), and mine as well.
This is part of God’s will for me, however I may see it.

 Today I woke up and planned my day. Only 50% of it turned out the way I wanted. The viewing I’d planned didn’t happen, nor did any of the accounting. I only partially wrote my journal before I was interrupted by a visitor. My participation in the ‘Pay it Forward Book Give Away Flash Mob didn’t happen either (I got the time wrong, and was there a whole hour too early). What did happen was an unexpected meeting with my friend fromMontserrat, who was inBirmingham on a lightening visit. We met in the city centre and the weather was so beautiful it could have beenMontserrat. The city centre was humming with the quiet confidence that this weather will go on for another few days. People are even daring enough to be planning BBQs.

 I also made the effort to go to my first Ceroc dance class tonight at the Jaguar Social Club in Castle Vale. I’m definitely getting better at partner dancing, not nearly as good as the people who’ve been going for nine years though.

 So how did today’s lessons fit into my life? It was the last short practice statement that helped me through the day, ‘This is part of God’s will for me, however I may see it.’ It’s not too much at all. If it wasn’t needed it wouldn’t be here. It is relevant. Maybe the learning is that I need to plan fewer things to do each day, and accept that anything vital for my well being will be given priority by God.
