Realizing God's Will Is Oneness

Everyone Who Asks Receives

I sit with confidence that in asking for the Will of God to be made known to me for me, that it will be given.  I am confident that in asking for God’s love to be a greater awareness in my mind, that it will be given.  I am confident that I will find what truly nourishes me and satisfies me on a profoundly deep level because it is given.  For in asking for this would my Father give me a rock or stone instead?  I don’t think so.  I do think of all I would give my children should they ask.  It is promised that my Father would give me even more than this.

I feel a great void in my life, a great void of meaning and purpose.  I know in truth I cannot be apart from the Will of God, yet in my conscious awareness there is a need so vast and so great.  I wonder what can fill it.  I have tried to fill it with things of the world, but they have failed me.  I am wondering if I stopped filling it with worldly things that I would feel in a panic because the feeling of need is so great.  My mind seems like a vast space to be filled.  What would nourish and fulfill me to such a degree that I would feel totally complete and whole?  Across my mind there is anticipation and hope, and yes, even a confidence that this will be given me to know.

I place myself in an attitude of listening.  How does one know the answer?  What certainty comes?  My mind’s thoughts come forth - children, potential activities, creative ideas, abstract visions without meaning.  What is my Spirit’s pleasure as it appears to walk the earth?  What is my greatest fulfillment here that would dwarf all earthly pleasures?  I long for that deep, deep nourishment that completely satisfies me.  This can only be of God, but what is it?  I have no answers.  I wish I did.

I do believe that such awareness can come to me.  I do believe that I can recognize it when the answers comes.  It is promised and I believe God does not promise falsely.  It is a matter of patience, though, as to when the awareness is granted.  Which now moment?  For it can only come in the now moment.

As thoughts come to the surface of my mind and fade away, I allow deeper awareness to come forth.  I let worldly thoughts drift away, not hanging onto them, yet there can be a message in these.  For in these I can notice what I am valuing in the world that is causing me pain.  What lies deeper?  What is underneath?  This is what I ask; I seek and knock for the door to be opened.  Let this come forth, the awareness of love’s presence.  I know only this will satisfy me.  It is the great desire to know myself as one with God.  This is my will, to be one with God’s Will.  How can this be denied?  It is not possible for it to be denied.  This is my salvation.  This is my great anticipation.

What form would this take here on earth?  Maybe it does not have to take form, but earth itself is full of form.  It is a matter of not being attached to any particular form, but letting it be drawn to me from the highest good.  I cannot say what shape or texture or type the Bread of Life shall be.  It shall come to me as is perfect for me and for the world around me.  This is perfect prayer - let it be done according to my Father’s Will, for the Father’s Will is only love.  Whatever form this takes shall fulfill me.

I open to this.  I know not what it is, but I am open to it nonetheless, confident it will arrive.  Jesus taught us to pray this way, and so I am.  I am tired of trying to complete myself in the world.  I realize my spiritual wholeness leads to activity in the world, but the source of the activity is different, as well as the purpose.  Activity sourced from wholeness, from the awareness of God’s love, is nourishing, is satisfying to the Spirit, and so to the body as well as mind.  This is powerfully purposeful.  From this there is no void to fill, for the activity springs from abundance.  Trying to fill the void from things of the world is without purpose and without any satisfaction past the fleeting moment.  The world is as empty as its promises of happiness.

I know my only happiness is in the love of God, and the awareness of the love of God.  Perhaps this is a great deal to know, afterall.  I may act differently at times because my human ego mind is uppermost, and I have forgotten.  But soon the dissatisfaction with worldly things returns and I am reminded that the world is not my true home and a mind filled with worldly things feels lonely and without purpose.

Oh to know my true purpose here!  Oh such a gift as this do I ask and seek!  Such fulfillment would be mine to have this answer uppermost in my mind.  To be love’s presence is great purpose.  I am grateful to know that only this will satisfy me, only this is my true delight.  God is pleased to grant me this, I know.  I am so grateful for the teaching that we can be confident that when we ask for this, we shall be answered for the door will open and we shall receive.  I am grateful to be confident in this.  I must practice patience, but patience is easier to practice when the answer is certain to arrive.  Oh that this would be in this moment, this moment that I knock!

Even should the answer come in the tiniest increments that I can hardly recognize, I am grateful.  For these increments will amass into a greater awareness over time.  Perhaps one day will dawn soon with their accumulation and I shall see clearly God’s love in a magnificent way.  I ask for the brilliance all at once, but I am grateful that it comes, and that it comes however it would come.  I accept God’s divine plan for me as best.  I can practice confidence in prayer.  I can know all is well, however it is.  I ask for fulfillment and let go of timetables, forms attitudes, and trust in God’s abundant love.  I forgive myself for feeling that I have lack or a void to fill because this thought is false.  God’s love sees no void to fill because there is only love.  Yet, in God’s grace there is a healing plan at work for me and I accept in confidence it is there and comes to me as I ask.  I ask only God’s Will be done.  Amen.
