Lesson 209 – I Feel the Love of God Within Me Now

Part 1  Undoing the Way We See Things Now


I am not a body.  I am free. For I am still as God created me.

Lesson 209

  1. (189)  I feel the love of God within me now.

The Love of God is what created me.  The Love of God is everything I am.  The Love of God proclaimed me as His Son.  The Love of God within me sets me free.

I am not a body.  I am free.  For I am still as God created me. 

Personal Notes and Application:   I do feel the love of God within me now.  This morning we woke up at my brother-in-law’s house.  At first, I didn’t know where I was and then I remembered:  We were here for a funeral.  To honor the memory of the man who brought forth my husband’s body into the world.  However it is the love of God who created us, it is the love of God that is everything we are.  The love of God has proclaimed us as His Son and sets us free from the bondage of our human ancestry, bodies, and DNA – and we can be thankful for that.  The love of God sets us free then from tribal traditions, clannish obligations, and meaningless cultural compulsions.   We can choose to go through the motions if we so desire, but we are free.

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
