I will not leave you comfortless:
I will come to you.
“Father, I come to You today to seek the
peace that You alone can give. I come in
silence. In the quiet of my heart, the deep
recesses of my mind, I wait and listen for
Your Voice. My Father, speak to me today.
I come to hear Your Voice in silence and
in certainty and love, sure You will hear
my call and answer me.”
At that day ye shall know that
I am in my Father,
and ye in me, and I in you.
Now do we wait in quiet. God is here, because
we wait together. I am sure that He will speak to
you, and you will hear. Accept my confidence,
for it is yours. Our minds are joined. We wait with
one intent; to hear our Father’s answer to our call,
to let our thoughts be still and find His peace, to
hear Him speak to us of what we are, and to reveal
Himself unto His Son.
No man can serve two masters:
“Father, it is today that I am free, because
my will is Yours. I thought to make
another will. Yet nothing that I thought
apart from You exists. And I am free
because I was mistaken, and did not affect
my own reality at all by my illusions. Now
I give them up, and lay them down before
the feet of truth, to be removed forever
from my mind. This is my holy instant of
release. Father, I know my will is one with
for either he will hate the one, and love the other;
or else he will hold to the one
and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
And so today we find our glad return to Heaven,
which we never really left. The Son of God this
day lays down his dreams. The Son of God this
day comes home again, released from sin and clad
in holiness, with his right mind restored to him at
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
“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.”
The Son can do nothing of himself,
but what he seeth the Father do:
for what things soever He doeth,
these also doeth the Son likewise.
Today we have one Guide to lead us on. 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.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me:
for I am meek and lowly in heart;
“Father, how still today! How quietly do
all things fall in place! This is the day
that has been chosen as the time in which
I come to understand the lesson that there
is no need that I do anything. In You is
every choice already made. In You has
every conflict been resolved. In You is
everything I hope to find already given
me. Your peace is mine. My heart is quiet,
and my mind at rest. Your Love is Heaven,
and Your Love is mine.”
and ye shall find rest unto your souls:
For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.
The stillness of today will give us hope that we
have found the way, and travelled far along it to a
wholly certain goal. Today we will not doubt the
end which God Himself has promised us. We trust
in Him, and in our Self, Who still is one with Him.
Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
where thieves do not break through nor steal.
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.
I will not wait another day to find the treasures
that my Father offers me. Illusions are all vain,
and dreams are gone even while they are woven
out of thoughts that rest on false perceptions. Let
me not accept such meager gifts again today.
God’s Voice is offering the peace of God to all
who hear and choose to follow Him. This is my
choice today. And so I go to find the treasures
God has given me.
“Father, I seek but the eternal. For Your
Son can be content with nothing less than
this. What, then, can be his solace but
what You are offering to his bewildered
mind and frightened heart, to give him
certainty and bring him peace? Today I
would behold my brother sinless. This
Your Will for me, for so will I behold my
Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgement ye judge,
ye shall be judged:
and with what measure ye mete,
it shall be measured to you again.
I will be honest with myself today. I will not think
that I already know what must remain beyond my
present grasp. I will not think I understand the
whole from bits of my perception, which are all
that I can see. Today I recognize that this is so.
And so I am relieved of judgements that I cannot
make. Thus do I free myself and what I look upon,
to be in peace as God created us.
“Father, today I leave creation free to be
itself. I honor all its parts, in which I am
included. We are one because each part
contains Your memory, and truth must
shine in all of us as one.”
