Daily Inspiration -- April 28, 2017
When we feel out of sorts, unclear about our purpose, floating anxiety, or minor exhaustion, it can be helpful to take some time out, become quiet and centered, and gently ask ourselves to be still and know. Know what? That God is present and graciously inviting us to be held in a loving embrace. That is all. We needn’t always complicate things by attempting to figure out what is wrong or investigate deeply into our motives. Just surrender to a Power greater than our personal strength, a Presence more loving than human, an Intelligence grander than our individual minds, and a Wisdom more insightful and rewarding than any philosophy we may have known.
There is a time and place to follow the thread of sadness or upset in order to understand ourselves and move into a more conscious and creative direction, but an initial, open-hearted invitation to Divine Nurture can be the best basis for such important personal work. From this firm foundation, peace begins to replace upset, faith supplants fear, and love heals separation. When we begin at the beginning, we are guided each step of the way on the path to health and wellbeing. You may wish to use the following affirmation:
I open my heart to God’s Love, my mind to Divine Wisdom, and I am nurtured and led to greater good every moment of my day.
May your Friday be peaceful, your weekend restorative, and I’ll be with you again on Monday.
