God's plan for salvation is a perfect and ever-unfolding plan through which love brings happiness to all living things. You are learning to give up your frantic searching for what could possibly make you happy and to accept God's plan instead. Holding grievances, however, blocks the unfolding of God's plan. As you learn to give up your grievances, you allow happiness to flow forth.
These ideas are for review today:
Only God's plan for salvation will work.
It is senseless for me to search wildly about for salvation. I have seen it in many people and in many things, but when I reached for it, it was not there. I was mistaken about where it is. I was mistaken about what it is. I will undertake no more idle seeking. Only God's plan for salvation will work. And I will rejoice because His plan can never fail.
These are some suggested forms for applying this idea specifically:
Holding grievances is an attempt to prove that God's plan for salvation will not work. Yet only His plan will work. By holding grievances, I am therefore excluding my only hope of salvation from my awareness. I would no longer defeat my own best interests in this insane way. I would accept God's plan for salvation, and be happy.
Specific applications for this idea might be in these forms:
"Faithlessness is not lack of faith but faith in nothing."
