“The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.” (Psalms 121: 7)
We may feel spoiled, tarnished. We may feel that our lives have been damaged by experiences, others’ actions, and our own. We may see ourselves as no longer pure and fresh and innocent. But this presentation of you is not the truth of your being. God has preserved you, kept you perfect.
God’s Love is a preservative. His affection and protection means that our true natures and our true lives are maintained and sustained forever. Our goodness and original flavor is in no way lost or tainted. God has made us in Spirit and He keeps us spiritually. We are not material identities with lives that have had their way with us.
We are spiritual ideas, the right and good and beloved thoughts of God. This man and this woman that you were caused to be have not gone anywhere. They are ready for the claiming and the living. We do not need to believe that material life has more control over us than God, our Maker. You aren’t lost from goodness or fallen from grace. You don’t need to remake yourself. God has you in His Love and in this Love you remain at your very best, safe from harm or misuse. Listen for His voice telling you who you really are and how you really are and rejoice that your soul, your identity and glory, is preserved forever.
