People sometimes feel that God is testing them. While I understand that feeling, and it’s one that I’ve had.   I’ve come to shift my view from feeling TORTURED by the testing to feeling supported by it. I no longer believe God tests us to find out what we’ll do, but to help us rise to the highest and best within us.

God isn’t an old man in the sky who’s fiendish in one moment and generous in another. I love what Ernest Holmes writes in the Science of Mind about the nature of God being responsive and Loving, but not intercessory. I believe that God is impersonal, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient – the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and forever without opinions, preferences or personality. God is not human. God is Intelligence. God is Love. For this reason, I often use the words Love, or Life, or Universe, or Spirit, or Divine, or Beloved, rather than God.

The Divine Mind of Love Intelligence does not test us. However, I do believe that our Higher Holy Spirit Self – the mighty I AM Presence, our own “personal” Higher Self, does create situations and circumstances that help us to strengthen and purify; And those experiences can feel like a test when I hold onto that which no longer serves me.

When I’m willing to let go, it feels like an opportunity not a test.

I now welcome the opportunity to clear out old patterns and perceptions through being strengthened.  In fact, I’m GRATEFUL for them!  When I take this view of the challenge that seems like a test, I am truly grateful that my Spirit supports me by creating an opportunity for me to rise to my Divinity.

Divine Love is unconditional. What is there to test? When I live a life of surrender, non-attachment and non-judgment, then Life provides me wonderful opportunities, situations and circumstances that give me the opportunity to course correct, to build strong heart muscle, deep compassion and to purify my view of Life and Love. I have a great desire for that! I AM grateful for the support that appears as a challenge!

Sometimes, I can feel resistant, reluctant and just plain lazy. However, that’s not a place I choose to make my nest in. Thank GOD my Higher Holy Spirit Self pushes me out of the nest when I forget it.

I was born to fly! I prefer to fly! When I forget, I welcome that push! Grateful am I. Phew and woo hoo!
