God’s sovereignty  and The Purpose of Prayer

 

Today I share with you my blessing that I post daily on Facebook, following that excerpts from Illuminata by Marianne Williamson.

Blessings Day 252: yesterday was hard for a number of reasons. Picking up Marianne Williamson’s Illuminata was so helpful. I read aloud to my husband passages in the chapter “Ladders to God”.

I’m not always sure I’ve made the right decisions but I’m not walking this path pretending I am alone any more. I am born of the Divine Consciousness of God, the field of infinite possibilities, All That Is, All That Heals, All That Infinitely Loves. May I rest in those pastures, today and every day.

“The issue is not whether our day is easy, but whether we spend it with an open heart.”

“Prayer and meditation reconnect us with our Source. …Just as we used to think that the earth was the center of external power and then found out that the sun is, we have been thinking that man’s ego is the center of internal power, and at last, we’re remembering that God is. …The purpose of prayer is to bring Heaven and earth together.  It gives inner peace in ways that neither intellectual understanding, credentials, money, sex, drugs, houses, clothes nor any gifts of the world can do.  …The intellect gives many things, but ultimately it cannot give comfort.  …Through prayer we find what we cannot find elsewhere; a peace that is not of this world.”

After so many years apart from my Christian and Judaic roots, God doesn’t care why or how I came back, only that I have.
