Out of our gratitude, we learn to appreciate everything God has given us. With this thankfulness, our circumstances are seen with eyes of truth and love. The love of God is recognized as our peace, and we give the day to Him in gratitude. Think on the love of God today and your gifting of this day to Him.
This day is God's. It is my gift to Him.
I will not lead my life alone today. I do not understand the world, and so to try to lead my life alone must be but foolishness. But there is One Who knows all that is best for me. And He is glad to make no choices for me but the ones that lead to God. I give this day to Him, for I would not delay my coming home, and it is He Who knows the way to God.
And so we give today to You. We come with wholly open minds. We do not ask for anything that we may think we want. Give us what You would have received by us. You know all our desires and our wants. And You will give us everything we need in helping us to find the way to You.
Quote of the Day
"In accepting the Atonement, the correction of our perceptions, we are returned to who we really are. Our true, purely loving self can never be uncreated. All illusions will be undone."
