What We Resist, Persists

Dear God,

What we resist, persists.  Yesterday when I just accepted something I had been resisting, re-surrendering to You, the way within hours was cleared for a solution.

I find this amazing.  A spiritual law that we don’t often countenance.

Thank You for once again reminding me that the solution is found with the problem, exactly what A Course in Miracles says.

Amen.

God Helps

Dear God,

I am trying to solve a minor problem, and the more I think about it, the more confused I become.  I ask You to speak to my heart in this quandary.  Your Answers always leave nothing to be desired.

I will clear my mind and soften my heart, now that I have ask You for help. You never fail me.  You are always here, with me, helping me.

Thank You for the reassurance that Your blessing will solve anything that comes up.

Amen.

Living Well

Dear God,

You ask me to live “sanely,” by which I mean to put into practice what I know about living well.  I would live peacefully today, letting go of all that gets in the way of my happiness, letting my “problems” rest lightly on my mind and heart.

This is the only way.  As an Eastern teacher said, “Be willing to have it so.”  I can’t enjoy life if I am constantly trying to improve it.

Thank You for reminding me once again of the benefits in remembering what You have taught me.

Amen.

An Angel Says “Grow!”

Dear God,

I read recently that everyone’s problems are there so that we will grow.  And the Talmud says that every blade of grass has an Angel bending over it, saying, “Grow.  Grow.” 

I think that You would have us handle these growth opportunities in a smooth and easy way. The solution is always with the problem, something that is A Course in Miracles reassurance. 

Be with me as I remain patient in the timing, patient while you resolve a current dilemma.  Solving problems is always within Your will.  The growth happens while I wait.

Amen.

Constant Care

Dear God,

It is such a mistake to doubt Your care.  The answer to any difficulty is always here when I ask for a solution and then am open to what I “hear.”  You respond.  This is the best and quickest way to an answer to every prayer.

Your constant care keeps me safe and warm.  Your constant care is a blessing that I have come to expect.  Thank You for allowing this expectation to bear fruit.

Amen.

Guidance

Dear God,

May this day go smoothly, despite my allergies.  So many people have allergy problems these days, a minor issue for most.  I am eager for my ears to become unstopped, my nose to return to normal, and life to go on without this little problem.

Help me to be patient.  You don’t assure us of a life without problems, small or big.  But the one thing I always want to remember is that You are here with me, giving me detailed guidance at every turn.

This is the saving grace of life on Earth.  Thank You.

Amen.

Full Heart

Dear God,

My heart is overflowing with gratitude today for the Answer to a longstanding dilemma.  If I had been more attuned to Your Answer, sooner, then I would not have had to wait.  The solution is always with the problem.

May I remember to come to You immediately when something troubles me.  You hold all the Answers.

Thank You for Your solution this day.

Amen.

Obsessions

Dear God,

When I get uptight about something, I tend to hold it in my mind—just obsess.  When this dynamic traps me, I must just relax and let go, release the thought.  Let my heart, as loving as I can make it, rule my day.

You mean for us to enjoy our days.  We are not meant to go from one problem to another, from day to day.  Let me remember this today.  Let me remember this every day.

I appreciate the love with which You cocoon me.

Amen.
