I am Not Alone
by Sue Hoadley, RScP
As I feel overwhelmed with the thought, ”I have to be strong enough to handle this” or “I have to deal with this, fix it, make it better,” “I have to be forgiving, compassionate, patient..” I feel very alone.
Then I remember the truth of my being, I am not alone! There is a Power greater than I am. It created me, created the earth and all beings, the galaxies, the Universe! It expresses as life, beauty, all the wonder and intelligence in nature… the tiny seed, the giant redwoods…all that is. This Power we call by a thousands names, God, Allah, Spirit, Father, Lord, and really it is so ineffable, so great, we cannot name it. This Power is alway here, in my breath, breathing me, in my heartbeat, pulsing me. And it is good.
As this Power breathes me, I know I am an expression, an extension of this living God. Nothing can separate me from my living, loving source.
It is always guiding me, governing me, guarding me, for that is Its nature, the essence of Its relationship with me, It’s creation and all of creation. It is the essence of its relationship with you. You are never alone. You are loved, guarded, guided, governed, lifted in this Power that flows through you.
Stop and be still and know that God is here, as close as your breath. Know that your needs and desires are supported by your Source, supplied by your Source, in abundance. You are healed, strengthened, enlivened, supported always. You are the beloved of your Creator.
And so in response to this Divine Love and caring, I give thanks. I give thanks for the innate involvement of God, Life Force, with me and all that is. I am grateful, knowing you too are held in the loving arms of your Source.
“Nothing can separate us from the love of God, neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow— no power in the sky above or in the earth below-indeed nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the Love of God.” Romans 8: 31-39
I release these words into the Divine law of the Universe, knowing they are manifest in my life as in yours. And so it is!
