A happy outcome to all things is sure

God’s promises make no exception. And God guarantees that only joy can be the final outcome found for everything.

The past is over. It can touch me not.

The past is over. It can touch me not.

Let me not look upon a past that is not there. For you have offered me Your Own replacement, in a present world the past has left untouched and free of sin. Here is the end of guilt. And here am I made ready for Your Final step. Shall I demand that You wait longer for Your Child to find the loveliness You planned to be the end of all dreams and pain?

I will not be afraid of love today

I will not be afraid of love today.

If I could realize this but today, salvation would be reached for all the world.

This decision not to be insane, and to accept myself as God, My Source, created me. This the determination to not be asleep in dreams of death, while truth remains forever living in the joy of love.

Today I wake with joy

My holiness shines bright and clear today.

Today I wake with joy, expecting but the happy things of God to come to me. I ask but they come, and realize my invitation will be answered by the thoughts to which it has been sent by me.

Creation’s Gentleness is all I see

I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I had laid my sins on it and saw them looking back at me. How fierce they seemed! And how deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of my mind alone.

Today I see the world in the celestial gentleness with which creation shines. There is no fear in it. Let no appearance of my sins obscure the light of Heaven shining in the world.

Forgiveness Ends All Suffering

Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end. What suffering is now conceivable? What loss can be sustained? The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving. It is now so like to Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light it reflects. And so the journey which the Child of God began has ended in the light from which it came.

Father, we would return our minds to You. We have betrayed them, held them in a vise of bitterness, and frightened them with thoughts of violence and death. Now would we rest again in You, as You created us.
