I place the future in the hands of God.
Well, why wouldn’t I? No place is better! While God is invisible, Be-ing Presence, rather than a Thing, His works are very visible, and so very present!
How relaxing it is to just say: Take over! No more need for Me to control. That’s not My job; it belongs to Our dear Father-Mother God.
1 Today’s idea takes another step toward quick salvation, – doesn’t that sound good! – and a giant stride it is indeed! So great the distance is that it encompasses, it sets you down just short of Heaven, with the goal in sight and obstacles behind. For perfect trust in God is so relieving and relaxing. Your foot has reached the lawns that welcome you to Heaven’s gate, the quiet place of peace where you await with certainty the final step of God. Nothing so near to Heaven can in any way be toxic. It’s Purity is oh so refreshing. Our minds too feel so fresh, made clean and new by Our trust in God. How far are we progressing now from earth toward our real Home in God, which is Heaven. Not a place, but a holy state of Mind; one that is happy! How close are we approaching to our goal! How short the journey still to be pursued! Even the air is fragrant with God’s Love.
2 Accept today’s idea, and you have passed all anxiety, all pits of hell, all blackness of depression, thoughts of sin, and devastation brought about by guilt, and the desire to be in control. Accept today’s idea, and you have released the world from all imprisonment by loosening the heavy chains – control by ego – that locked the door to freedom on it. Now are You under the domain of God’s most Holy Spirit. You are saved, and your salvation thus becomes the gift you give the world because you have received. One Dreamer awakening- or even stirring – thins out the dream dramatically.
3 In no one instant is depression felt or pain experienced or loss perceived. I speak here, and in My statements following, of the Holy Instants of Your Oneness with Our beloved Father-Mother. In no one instant sorrow can be set upon a throne and worshipped faithfully. For Holiness knows naught of ego pain. In no one instant can one even die. And ‘death’ to God – Your Partner in the Holy Instant – is incomprehensible. And so each instant given unto God in passing, with the next one given Him already, is a time of your release from sadness, pain and even death itself. Good news, isn’t it!
4 God holds your future as He holds your past and present. They are one to Him, and so they should be one to you. There is only Now. Yet in this world the temporal progression still seems real. And so you are not asked to understand the lack of sequence really found in time. You are but asked to let the future go and place it in God’s hands. And as Now, feel Peace. And you will see by your experience that you have laid the past and present in His hands as well because the past will punish you no more and future dread will now be meaningless. How sweet the feeling when You say – and You really mean them – these words so sweet as well to God: Take over!
5 Release the future. Worry not of it. God is taking care of each sense of time: past, present, future. For the past is gone, and what is present, – Be-ing here and now – freed from its bequest of grief and misery, of pain and loss, becomes the instant in which time escapes the bondage of illusions where it runs its pitiless, inevitable course. Then is each instant, which was slave to time, transformed into a holy instant when the light that was kept hidden in God’s Son is freed to bless the world. An endless Holy Instant well describes the wonder-filled Joy of Eternity. Gifted to the Son, who need only be to please His Father. Now is he free, and all his glory shines upon a world made free with him to share his holiness. Can You picture this extreme happiness?
6 If you can see the lesson for today as the deliverance it really is, you will not hesitate to give as much consistent effort as you can to make it be a part of you. Hand to God Your each and every minute! He will return them filled with joy for You. As it becomes a thought which rules your mind, a habit in your problem-solving repertoire, a way of quick reaction to temptation, you extend your learning to the world. And as you learn to see salvation in all things, so will the world perceive that it is saved. Every instant is an opportunity to give to God, Who will return them full with miracles.
7 What worry can beset the one who gives his future to the loving hands of God? There is no other power to contravene His Love for You. What can he suffer? When S/He’s trusting God? What can cause him pain or bring experience of loss to him? This attitude of trust – in and of itself – is uplifting. What can he fear? Trusting Good, S/He now becomes quite fearless. And what can he regard except with love? For he who has escaped all fear of future pain has found his way to present peace and certainty of care the world can never threaten. What can harm You when You’ve put Your trust in the Power of the Universe, and You know this Power Loves You very dearly? He is sure that his perception may be faulty but will never lack correction. For which He’s grateful. He is free to choose again when he has been deceived, to change his mind when he has made mistakes. And still feel guiltless. For those who do forgive are forgiven.
8 Place, then, your future in the hands of God. Could You possibly do any better? For thus you call the memory of Him to come again, replacing all your thoughts of sin and evil with the truth of love. For all Reality can but be God. Ask for His help for He stands ever-present ready for You. Think you the world could fail to gain thereby and every living creature not respond with healed perception? How can this be? It’s very simple. You know all minds are joined. Who entrusts himself to God has also placed the world within the hands to which he has himself appealed for comfort and security. Your turn to God turns all the world to Him, and We all are healed! He lays aside the sick illusions of the world along with his and offers peace to both. You have turned Your mind wholeheartedly to God, and You are healed.
9 Now are we saved indeed. And We can save the world along with Us, for Our minds are joined. For in God’s hands we rest untroubled, sure that only good can come to us. If we forget, we will be gently reassured. If we accept an unforgiving thought, it will be soon replaced by love’s reflection. And if we are tempted to attack, we will appeal to Him Who guards our rest to make the choice for us that leaves temptation far behind. No longer is the world our enemy, for we have chosen that we be its friends. What does this entail but to look at evil and then look through it to see God behind the illusion.
