PART II. SECTION 5: WHAT IS THE BODY?
Lesson 267 My Heart is Beating in the Peace of God.
- Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love. It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought. Peace fills my heart and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me. Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength. I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving Arms. Each heartbeat calls His Name, and every one is answered by His Voice, assuring me I am at home in Him.
- Let me attend Your Answer, not my own. Father, my heart is beating in the peace the Heart of Love created. It is there and only there that I can be at home.
We are enveloped in an inner world of love calling us with each heartbeat and with each breath, in everything we do and in everything we think. Peace bubbles up from our spiritual core, and our whole beings are awash in forgiveness. A right mind! All that would save the world is given us, for every heartbeat brings more peace, and each breath we take infuses us with might. We are messengers of God, directed by His Voice, Holy Spirit implanted within. We are sustained by His Love. This inner kingdom is forever calm and filled with joy, for we stay sheltered within His Arms. Our heartbeats call His Name, and each one is rejoined by His Voice, declaring we are home in Him.
Dear Father, let me listen and respond to Your Response
and not my own! When my mind is full of
thousands of answers, with its dreams and schemes and go-nowhere ideas, let my
mind be quiet and listen for Your Voice and Your Answer. My heart is beating, thrum, thrum, thrum, in
peace and joy and happiness. Heart of Love, You created my heart, and it is in
You and only in You where I find meaning and purpose. Where I find my home. In Jesus name. Amen.
