I give my life to God to guide today.
Father, I give You all my thoughts today. I would have none of mine. In place of them, give me your own. I give you all my acts as well, that I may do your will instead of seeking goals which cannot be obtained, and wasting time in vain imaginings. Today I come to you. I will step back and merely follow you. Be you the guide, and I the follower who questions not the wisdom of the Infinite, nor Love whose tenderness I cannot comprehend, but which is yet your perfect gift to me.
Today we have one Guide to lead us on. And as we walk together, we will give this day to Him with no reserve at all. This is His day. And so it is a day of countless gifts and mercies unto us.
There is a short saying that encompasses everything in this lesson, and I had need of using it several times today. It’s ‘Let go and let God’.
In a meeting where I was expected to defend my corner I resisted the temptation to attack, and simply sat back and allowed the situation to unfold. I don’t yet know how the whole thing will play out, but I am very pleased that I had this lesson today to focus on, and I remained at peace throughout.
Today I knew the meaning of faith.
