I greet The Indwelling Spiritual Overcomer.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – I’m An Overcomer. The best teachers teach from the heart, not from a book. They have overcome their self-centeredness long enough to help another overcome themselves. Emmet Fox’s suggestion, Meekness – it is a combination of open-mindedness, faith in God, and the realization that the Will of God for us is always something joyous and interesting and vital. This state of mind also includes a perfect willingness to allow this Will of God to come about in whatever way Divine wisdom considers to be best, rather than in some particular way that we have chosen for ourselves, in other words, be teachable. There are two useful things to have if we are going to overcome our present way of life. One is an abiding faith in our Father’s grace; the confidence in things unseen, and a fundamental goodness and purpose in the universe. The other is obedience; living in accordance with our faith, one day at a time, and willing to do and to be our created purpose. I have confidence in myself when I have confidence in our Father. Let’s stop looking outside ourselves for our worth. Let’s visit the infinite intelligence within us all; that is transforming what we eat into our physical body, for the wisdom we need. “There is no great and no small, to the Soul that makes all, and whence It cometh all things are, and It cometh everywhere” Ralph Waldo Emerson. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
