ABIDING PEACE by Ernest Holmes

There is peace at the center of your being--a peace that can be felt throughout the day and in the cool of the evening when you have turned from your labor and the first star shines in the soft light of the sky. It broods over the earth quietly, tenderly, as a mother watches over her child. As you contemplate its presence, say to yourself:

"In this peace that holds me so gently I find strength and protection from all fear or anxiety. It is the peace of God in which I feel the love of a Holy Presence.

I am so conscious of this love, this protection, that every sense of fear slips away from me as mist fades in the morning light. I see good in everything, God personified in all people, Life manifest in every event. Spirit is not separate from persons or events; I see that It unites every-thing with Itself, vitalizing all with Its energy, creating everything through Its own divine imagination, surrounding everything with peace and quiet and calm.

I am one with this deep, abiding peace. I Know All Is Well."

AND THEN I WAIT


When we have needs or desires and we pray earnestly and sincerely about them, waiting in the silence is most important. How often when we pray, we expect God's perfect answers, but we do not allow spiritual ideas to grow and unfold in us.

When we say that expectations are from God, we mean that we expect the answers to our prayers to come from God, from the spiritual realm within. In the silence we find the answers to our prayers. Here we gain the assurance that all is well, that the affairs of our lives are under God's care and direction, that there is nothing that cannot be met -- because God is with us, working through us and through all that concerns us.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God" (Romans 8:19 A.V.).

Our prayers, our longings, our desires wait for the inner revelation that we are sons and daughters of god, that we are spiritual beings, that the essence of our lives is spiritual. When we have this revelation in our souls, our expectations are fulfilled and light breaks forth in us.

When we pray in faith, when we hold to positive and constructive ideas of Truth, when we weed out the negative thoughts and feelings, when we let go of limiting beliefs, regrets, bitterness, or resentments, then we wait -- wait for God's good to come forth, wait for the revealing of the son of God, the perfect creation of God to blossom in us.

... We expect perfect results when we pray because our expectations are from God, and because our expectations are from Him we wait in silence. We have absolute confidence, we know that God is the Creator, that above and beyond our expectations is God's perfect good, His perfect fulfillment.
