Love, which created me, is what I am.
I seek my own Identity, and find It in these words. ‘Love, which created me, is what I am.’ Now need I seek no more. Love has prevailed. So still It waited for my coming home, that I will turn away no longer from the holy face of Christ. And what I look upon attests the truth of the Identity I sought to lose, but which my Father has kept safe for me.
Father, my thanks to You for what I am; for keeping my Identity untouched and sinless, in the midst of all the thoughts of sin my foolish mind made up. And thanks to You for saving me from them. Amen.
There is something incredibly comforting about these lessons. It wasn’t till it was discussed at the group tonight that I realised that I was supposed to be reading the initial introduction ‘what is forgiveness’ at the beginning of each of these lessons from 221-230, for added meaning and relevance. Despite that they have had the most amazing calming effect on me. They seem to be a constant reminder of who I really am, in a really gentle but insistent way. I am love. That’s my true identity. Why wouldn’t I be at peace?
I spent most of the day researching and writing the new novel. Had a real creative splurge. I’m developing a real relationship with the characters, and they are speaking to me with their own voices.
