While the ego's voice is fearful and chaotic, the voice for God is small and still. With this exercise, we command the mind to hear only the voice of love.
Let every voice but God's be still in me.
Father, today I would but hear Your Voice. In deepest silence I would come to You, to hear Your Voice and to receive Your Word. I have no prayer but this: I come to You to ask You for the truth. And truth is but Your Will, which I would share with You today.
Today we let no ego thoughts direct our words or actions. When such thoughts occur, we quietly step back and look at them, and then we let them go. We do not want what they would bring with them. And so we do not choose to keep them. They are silent now. And in the stillness, hallowed by His Love, God speaks to us and tells us of our will, as we have chosen to remember Him.
Quote of the Day
"People don't normally associate business with kindness, because business has come to be regarded as simply a tool for making money. Miracle-worker are not in business only to make money; they're in business to inject love into the world."
