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 Want.

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!

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.
