II.  SECTION 14. What am I?

Lesson 358 No call to God can be unheard nor left unanswered.  And of this I can be sure; His answer is the one I really want.

  1. You Who remember what I really am alone remember what I really want. You speak for God, and so You speak for me.  And what You give me comes from God Himself.  Your Voice, my Father, then is mine as well, and all I want is what You offer me, in just the form You choose that it be mine.  Let me remember all I do not know, and let my voice be still, remembering.  But let me not forget Your Love and care, keeping Your promise to Your Son in my awareness always.  Let me not forget myself is nothing, but my Self is all.[1]

Today we pray the prayer of the humble shepherds, the Kings from the East, the beggar, and the thief.  We pray the prayer of Christmas for we have found no joy in the world without God; we have found no peace and no comfort.  In the Voice for God and in the voice of our true Selves, we acknowledge that all we want can be found in what God gives us and in the form that He chooses to be ours.  We lay down the treasures of this world to take up the treasure of Christ.  We ask for remembrance – we remember but we want to quiet this voice, the distractions of what is temporal and unreal, and remember only that which is real and from our loving Father. 

Help us, Lord, to remember always Your Love and Care!  Let Your promise to Your Son, be our awareness always.  Without You this self is nothing: a shadow, a wisp of smoke, a morsel of meat and bone and gristle.  With You, we become the spirit of Christmas; Christ becomes us as we become Christ, bringing tidings of comfort and joy to all!
