“…The kingdom of God is within you.”
“Stop searching!” God admonished me this morning as I was sipping my decaf latte before the start of my work day.
“I didn’t know I was searching, God,” I answered.
“You look for answers in things outside of yourself,” He said in His usual gentle way. “Your answers are inside yourself because I put them there.”
I took another sip of coffee and swallowed as I pondered His words. “It’s hard to trust myself.”
“You’ve been told by people all of your life that you weren’t good enough, I know,” God said. “Everyone has that problem. But you’ve got to have faith that I’m in your heart. I won’t steer you in the wrong direction. I promise.”
“Let go of your own understanding. Let go of your ego. Listen to your heart, not your head,” God explained. “Talk to me more. Listen to me more. Meditate more.”
I swallowed the last of my coffee. “Okay, God, I’ll do my best to do those things. You’ll help me, right?”
“Don’t I always help you?” He asked as a reminder.
“Yes. You do. Always. You’ve never let me down.”
“What you desire is inside of you. Trust it. Nurture it. Love it. It’s my Spirit, tucked into your heart and soul,” God whispered. I reached out my hand and felt the warmth of His touch. I was ready to start the day.
Happy Valentine’s Day my friends!
