When it feels like there’s no way, Spirit can still make a way.
When it feels like only failure is possible, Spirit can still succeed.
When it feels like all is lost, Spirit can show us what’s valuable.
In God, all things worth doing, having and being are always possible.

When we’re feeling hopeless and helpless, then we’ve left God out of the equation, and that’s the real reason that we feel so down and desperate. We can say we think that we feel despair because of what’s happening in the world, but our upset is really because we’re not allowing Spirit to lead us, guide us, and direct us. And we can change our mind. We can go the other way.

When we’re worried, we’re imagining that things won’t go well.

We’re imagining what we don’t want. It seems scary to put Spirit in charge and that’s precisely why we’re worried. It’s because our faith is in our own ability to discern the best, and make it happen, and we know we cannot do it, and so we are fearful.

We can’t control the world.
We can’t control our mind.
Surrender is the key.

When we’re willing to put Spirit in charge then everything changes.

It can seem that we don’t want change. It can feel as if change is a threat and a worry. We can fear change because we can’t control it, but the fact is that we can’t control anything, so let’s not fool ourselves anymore.

All we have to do is to look to the world – at some of the most “powerful” people in the world and see how they try so hard to control things and no matter how much “power and influence” they have, they still can’t control things to go their way.

In truth, there’s only one way, and that way is God’s way. Let’s all get off the pain train and jump on board the Love Train. Let’s not wait until the pain is squeezing us so hard we just wish we were dead.

Let’s simply put Spirit in charge and allow the miracles to unfold.

Let’s get out of the way. And let’s get on with it and do what we’re here to do – Love ourselves and each other.

“Wherever [the Holy Spirit] looks He sees Himself, and because He is united He offers the whole Kingdom always. This is the one message God gave to Him and for which He must speak, because that is what He is. The peace of God lies in that message, and so the peace of God lies in you. The great peace of the Kingdom shines in your mind forever, but it must shine outward to make you aware of it.” A Course in Miracles, T-6.II.12.

Let us decide to really live as though we knew this to be true:

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Therein lies the peace of God.

We are eternal.
We are real.
We are part of God.
God will not be destroyed.
