Part 1

Undoing The Way We See Things Now.

Review V

Lesson 180

God Is But Love, and Therefore So Am I.

1.  (169)  By grace I live. By grace I am released.

2.  (170)  There is no cruelty in God and none in me.

     God is but love, and therefore so am I.

Daily Prayer for Review V:

Steady our feet, our Father. Let our doubts be quiet and our holy minds be still and speak to us. We have no words to give to You. We would but listen to Your Word and make it ours. Lead our practicing as does a father lead a child along a way he does not understand. Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe because his father leads the way for him. So do we bring our practicing to You. And if we stumble, you will raise us up. If we forget the way, we count upon Your sure remembering. We wander off, but You will not forget to call us back. Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk more certainly and quickly unto You. And we accept the Word You offer us to unify our practicing, as we review the thoughts that You have given us. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Personal Notes:

By grace I live. By grace I am released. Grace cannot come until the mind prepares itself for true acceptance. Grace becomes inevitable instantly in those who have prepared a table where it can be gently laid and willingly received, an altar clean and holy for the gift. Grace is acceptance of the love of God within a world of seeming hate and fear. By grace alone the hate and fear are gone, for grace presents a state so opposite to everything the world contains that those whose minds are lightened by the gift of grace cannot believe the world of fear is real. We prepare for grace in that an open mind can hear the Call to waken. It is not shut tight against God’s Voice. “By grace I live. By grace I am released. By grace I give. By grace I will release. There is no cruelty in God and none in me. No one attacks without intent to hurt. This can have no exception. How thoroughly insane is the idea that to defend from fear is to attack! It may seem the enemy without that you attack. Yet your defense sets up an enemy within; an alien thought at war with you, depriving you of peace, splitting your mind into two camps which seem wholly irreconcilable. Love would ask you to lay down all defense as merely foolish, and your arms indeed would crumble into dust, for such are they are. The choice we make today is certain. We have reached this place before, but have chosen this cruel god remain with us in still another form, and so the fear of God returned with us. This time we leave it, and return to a new world unburdened by its weight, because not in its sightless eyes but in the vision that our choice restored to us. Now do our eyes belong to Christ, and He looks through them. Now our voice belongs to God and echoes His. And now our heart remains at peace forever. “Father, we are like You. No cruelty abides in us, for there is none in You. Your peace is ours. And we bless the world with what we have received from You alone. We choose again, and make our choice for all our brothers, knowing they are one with us. We bring them Your salvation as we have received it now. And we give thanks for them who render us complete. In them we see Your glory, and in them we find our peace. Holy are we, because Your holiness has set us free. And we give thanks, in Jesus name. Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!

God is Love

Love is God

I choose Love
