On the homepage I say this website is about sharing the process by which I went from a person of no faith to one who lives in complete faith in God acting in my life. That is God as my life. Here is a bit about that process. I have found that, every time I say I believe something, Life will not be long in providing a circumstance which offers me the opportunity to live the truth I know - the truth I say I know. As I was growing spiritually, and the roots of faith began to grow and develop in me, It did not take Life very long to pull the rug out from under my comfortable existence. Life said, OK here's a chance to live your faith. Live the truth you say you know. What I found was something expressed by May Rowland, "When you come to the end of your rope. It is time to let go of the rope." You might call this the time to take a leap of faith. When the rug has been pulled out from under your life, It is truly the time to let go of the rope, and put yourself entirely in God's hands.
When it became time to admit that as an individual I could see no way forward, I opened myself to the Divine Presence; became open without any judgment or expectation. When the realization hit that my problem was something I could not solve on my own, that is when another realization hit - I have no other way to go, or thing to do except to trust in God. The act of letting go lets go of the fear and the worry around any situation. Suddenly I was free, and able to say I am open to whatever comes and in the flow of Divine Presence. Letting go of the rope I did not fall, but found I was bouyed up in God's love in ways I could have never expected. I was blessed in ways I could never have dreamed. Letting go opened me to change and growth, and took me in new spiritual directions.
I tell you if you are in any difficult life circumstance and you feel you are the end of your rope. Let go. Trust God. Where you see no way. GOD SEES A WAY. Letting go and letting God is an enlarged and enlarging way to live life. Trust the Divine Presence in you and in all to provide your highest good - and your highest good will happen. This is the truth I know. Be at peace at all times.
BEHOLD THE LIGHT IN EVERYONE!
