My friend, Laura, who lives alone often calls me and asks me how I really feel emotionally, mentally and spiritually. She tells me what she is struggling with in her life and what puzzles she is trying to put together in relationship to God. It is our custom to talk from the heart at least twice a week, asking Holy Spirit to guide our conversations and be a helpmate in our busy lives.
Our two discussions this week centered around how anxiety grabs us and holds on to us and we personally feel we have to figure out solutions to our problems ourselves. My own huge stumbling block is that I want the problem solved now, as quickly and simply as possible. We forget we are supposed to worship, pray and ask for help from God. We forget to take a deep breath, calm down and turn our problems over to our helper, our biggest fan, God.
Our assignment between calls this week was to read and digest Lesson 105 in A Course in Miracles Workbook for Students on page 188 titled, God’s Peace and Joy Are Mine. Sentence four sums up our discussion very well:
“As Heaven’s peace and joy intensify when you accept them as God’s gift to you, so does the joy of your Creator grow when you accept His joy and peace as yours.”
When I accept God’s joy and God’s peace, I learn to lay my busyness and my problems at His feet and trust that He does have a plan for me. He will hold my hand and lead me through my toughest of times so that I may in turn shower the joy and peace I feel through His awesome presence on those around me and accept their loving joy and peace in return.
