Lesson 98 – Acceptance and trust

‘I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.’

Today is a day of special dedication. We take a stand on but one side today. We side with truth and let illusions go. We will not vacillate between the two, but take a firm position with the One. We dedicate ourselves to truth today, and to salvation as God planned it to be. All our doubts we lay aside today, and take our stand with certainty of purpose, and with thanks doubt is gone and surety is come.

All our sins are washed away by realising that they were but mistakes. The guiltless have no fear, for they are safe and recognise their safety. The rest in quiet certainty that they will do what is given them to do. They do not doubt their own ability because they know their function will be filled completely in the perfect time and space.

Is it not worth five minutes of your time each hour to be able to accept the happiness that God has given you? Today you practice with Him as you say:

I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.

I once read a book by Susan Jeffers (the author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway) called Living with Uncertainty, which is basically about waking up each day and being prepared to go with what the day brings, being prepared to be flexible with one’s plans, and willing to surrender them to a bigger cause.

Today was one of those days. One of the things I find hardest to deal with (though I am getting better) is waiting on other people. The thing that kept me going today as I waited with uncertainty for a visitor was the fact that whatever happened would be part of God’s plan for salvation.

In the event the person did turn up and the meeting exceeded my expectations. My colleague’s laid back approach taught me a thing or two about patience and trust.

On another note, the surprise from last night’s party was the amount of fun I had – way exceeding my expectation!! See some of the pics.
