Daily Word this month writes, ‘My soul thirsts for God.’(7th July 2023) When we are gasping for water, we drink. When we are desperate for help and support, we may finally turn to God in prayer, often demanding God meets our needs: Fix this, arrange that, intervene and sort this out. Oh, and thank you!
Yet, this is not where the real power of prayer lies. For me, the power lies in surrendering into Pure Presence, for here, the greater good, that which is greater than we can ever imagine, more easily flows. God will always show up as our collective good, which we notice when we surrender into Presence. For we are all beloved of God; we are all made in the image and likeness of God. “God saw everything that he had made and indeed it was very good.” (Gen. 1:31) Not one of us is forgotten or left out: God as our good is here and now.
This is why my soul thirsts for God. To know God in me and through me and as me. To feel this profound energy as my energy. To live my life from this point of centre – being in Pure Presence. Centred in this way, I now can know that God is here, in, through and as you. My affirmative prayers and words come from this inner knowing and profound experience of God.
I invite you to take time in the stillness, through meditation, prayer, being in nature, to discover God as good in you and those around you. It is a practice worth doing. For underneath all the discontent, all the fear and worry, is God. Allow Pure Being to hold you, express through and as you, so that when change and turmoil happens, you experience the profound energy of God holding you, expressing through and as you. Now we can find a way through that blesses us all.
