This day is God’s. It is my gift to Him.
I will not lead my life alone today. I do not understand the world, and so to try and lead my life alone must be but foolishness. But there is One Who knows all that is best for me. And He is glad to make no choices for me but the ones that lead to God. I give this day to Him, for I would not delay my comings home, and it is He Who knows the way to God.
And so we give today to You. We come with wholly open minds. We do not ask for anything that we may think we want. Give us what you would have received by us. You know all our desires and our wants. And You will give us anything we need in helping us to find the way to You.
What a struggle today was. I was awake at 3 a.m. and at 4 a.m. gave us trying to sleep and began to write the story my characters were telling me. When they finished speaking at 6.15 a.m. I did some emails and went back to bed at 7. It was nearly ten before someone else’s drama intruded into my world and woke me up. In addition to the lesson today, I read again the 50 principles of miracles, and while inspired and grounded by them; I still found it difficult at times throughout the day to implement them, to remain in the energy of love in the face of an onslaught of negativity. Maybe it would have been easier if I hadn’t been so tired. Maybe it would have been harder if I hadn’t constantly handed the day over to the Holy Spirit, especially in the moments when I felt like screaming, or when I felt my heart beating faster with frustration.
