I Provide an Opening For My Good

“If a great fire is smoldering under a house, it will never make a bonfire of the house until an opening is made somewhere for a draught [sic]. ……So the mighty Truth, filling every mind with its energy, waits to move.” –Emma Curtis Hopkins. “Scientific Christian Mental Practice”
There is one thing that I know for sure and it is this: The Universe (as Law) can only give to us that which we are willing to accept. To accept is to believe. To believe is to provide entry. To provide entry is to allow. To allow is to let God/Spirit/the Universe have its way; which is to let God BE God, in you!
As I think back on the many challenges that I have experienced throughout my lifetime, I have come to realize that the “toughest” times were when I thought I had to handle everything alone. If not alone, I sought interventions outside of myself, not to say that we do not need others, because we do, but my realization was to discover that the solution was readily available to me as it “was at hand.” What I was looking for was right where I was and awaiting entry. All I needed to have done at the time, was to open the “door.” Today, I realize that the “door” is none other than my conscious mind. All I needed to do was enter the Secret/Sacred place of the Most High. To retreat to the indwelling Spirit of God which was ALWAYS within my very being. The solution was simply awaiting an opening. It is all a process of growth, and as long as we are living, growth continues! So, if you are wondering if you will ever get “there,” wherever “there” is, I say unequivocally, you ARE THERE! Right where you are, God is, and all is well!
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.” Matthew 7:7
