Daily Inspiration, April 23rd

“And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.” (Exodus 33: 11)

We have an intimate friend in God. We have an understanding confidante and a trusty advisor who will never fail us. Moses experienced this tender relationship in the midst of his daunting task to lead a people to freedom, against all human odds. The great burning bush experience that initially got Moses’ attention and awe was not God’s necessary method of communication. He doesn’t need pyrotechnics to get His thoughts across to us.

God is ready to speak with us as our friend and we can commune with him in the same way. Communing means “talking with intimately.” Our prayer to this infinite Love is an intimate connection with Him. We can enter into our communion, our open-hearted prayer, with this sense of being ourselves with a friend. Let’s realize the nearness of God to us as well as the natural ease of this presence with us and for us.

When I read descriptions of the prayer times of Jesus or Mary Baker Eddy, I am struck by how natural this communion was. There was a readiness to listen and a joy in doing so, eagerness in hearing what our Friend should say that would be so right and full of understanding. With these inspired healers there was also the spirit of honest and free questioning, not as one would to a Deity but as one would to someone very close, one in whom there was complete trust. They felt they could humbly reveal right where they were in their thoughts and needs, and this led to healing. God speaks in the language of Love for He is Love. This pure affection is so easy to talk to and natural to listen to and so to gratefully receive answers, comfort, and peace.

    How wonderful to picture God as a friend…and then try to shine with that friendship to others…even if it is hard. I am most confused about everything. So I need that time..to commune. Not sure about what to do, hwo to do it..but like Jeff Hildner says…MIND  will tell us…and you have said that here. Sometimes it is darkest before the dawn. I know that with the preseistence I have shown, I can find my way. THere is too much good in things tht have been done…already by god in my life. If I am unhpapy here..and I am…I jsut have to figure out hwo to go to the Southern part of Minnesota, and find a place small…and be able to take my pets..and fins osmeone to help me do this. So meone will. I am not  alone. Just memontairly stopped. It will pass.

    I guess I get solified in thought when I see now pieces ocmign togther of how…like first ptu the hosue hup see what I can get for it…that is scary as what if there is no place for me that I cn afford and will not take my cats…and me. what if things just fall apart…and I end oup soemhow livign int eh streets somewhere or a burden to my son here whow coudl not or woudl not want me there. I would never live with them ..ever. So…being at hte rock bottom..I mus t get clear….clarity….and I do not have it. But this message of commune…mayeb I can do that today…and gain som perspective…and become stronger. I am most weak..and I will be going to my kinesologist as there is some deep seated pain I am feeling that is blocking my forward movment. I cannto seem to move it….I work and study and it is still there blocking me. I am grateful…I am humble…I am tyring not to be critical…tyring to see the all good….but have lost the joy…the soul  of me is gone. I cannto write…paint or do any of the thigns that owuld free me…..so will let youknwo what comes up…it is mortal of course..but it is ok. We all fall down sometimes….Love to you Merri

    You are not out of God’s care or lost to His Life, the good Life! I know that you are not made of fear and doubt. You are made of confidence, life, love, and a natural ability to see in the dark with the light of your own goodness. Give yourself a pause to be comforted, but don’t believe the lies that say you are lost. You may be on a threshhold, but you CAN see in the door and your mansion is just one step forward! You are already on the property!

    Love to you,
    Laura
