“God is the strength in which I trust.” A Course In Miracles
“I will breathe and trust today.”
Fear blinds us to joy. Sometimes we cannot lift the blinders because they are too heavy. That is when we must stop fighting like a child trying to escape a nightmare. Just breathe quietly and pray, “God I can’t free myself. Please help me.”
Grow quiet, breathe in and out and allow the pain, remembering it isn’t real. Remembering it WILL pass. What we give to God cannot hurt us. Knowing these heavy, dark feelings cannot hurt us, we can now see them as amazing opportunities and quietly move through them.
It is in our darkest moments that we can most powerfully learn
… to be patient with ourselves,
… to be gentle with ourselves,
… to be kind to ourselves,
… to be compassionate with ourselves,
… to be forgiving of ourselves.
Our job is to know the darkness isn’t real no matter how strong it feels.
Our job is to trust in the Light no matter how fleeting it may seem.
And then as it always does, light will shine through and lift our hearts again.
Just as spring always follows winter, so does light follow darkness.
And we’ll see that even though we doubted often and we doubted deeply, it doesn’t matter because God never doubted us. Not for an instant.
