The Light Within

A very interesting thing happened to me this morning.  While sitting at my desk with glass across the entire  back of the room, the sun was hidden behind the clouds, so I got up and turned on my large light.  After returning to my desk and reading a short while,  the sun came out and the room was bright once again.  Then, I turned off the light once again and the same thing happened again and again about four times.  A light came on in my consciousness and I realized the light was from within, not without!

And once again, this showed me that it is always my choice how I want to see any and everything.  Today, I will be alert and see what God/Love is seeing.  Psalm 5:3 states “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  We are not now and have never been separated from God, nor could ever be so we can always see what He sees.

Doubt

There are times I feel as if my prayers are effective and then, there are times when they seem “hit and miss”.  As I still my thoughts and soften my heart, right then and right there I realize that is when they are working because I know without a doubt it is God and not me.  The doubts I entertain are never, ever about God but my worthiness or receptivity.  Humility and gratitude fill my heart as I lay my earthly all on the altar.  I also know I am worthy and the precious child of God as we all are.

Psalm 5:3 reads “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning  I lay my requests before you  and  wait in expectation.”

Disappointment

Recently, it was revealed to me that our granddaughter was not going to receive a much-needed scholarship from an organization, where I am very active.  It seemed she didn’t show enough initiative nor interest and I was very upset.  This morning as I was at my desk studying and praying, the thought came to me that God has this!  I don’t need to plan, outline and manipulate, but only trust Him.  Psalm 5:3 reads, “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  No where in that verse does it require my doing anything but expect Good.  God doesn’t need my help.

Today, I will put that into practice and know all is well and only Good is going on.

Morning Requests

At times when I first awaken, my thoughts go immediately to  what I have been working on or things I need to do.  Before that takes hold in my consciousness, I recall two scriptures, one is Psalm 5:3 which reads, “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  The other one is Philippians 4:13 and states, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

With that being said, I pause and wait on God to direct my path.

Prayer

This morning as I awoke early and began to pray, I realized that the words would not flow nor was I even sure I had the right words.  Then humbly I knew that I could just ask God to know my heart and I needn’t worry about “getting it right”.    Then I opened my Bible to Psalm 5:3 and it states, “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  There is neither a right or wrong way to commune with God!
