FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: A RETURN TO LOVE

I am reading A Return to Love, Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles, by Marianne Williamson. Reading this book, the universe is opening up in ways I never imagined. I understand more about fear and love. The Course in Miracles says that love is real: "The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite." WOW! This is huge and illuminating. I am enjoying this journey. I am beginning to see things as they are. When I am feeling fear creep in, I know how to wrestle it back...at least I am learning to wrestle it back. I am finding myself worrying less and sometimes not at all. I am transforming and GOD is finally sighing: "I have been waiting for you" This is a long and glorious journey and I am walking it under my own strength, with my heart fully open. I believe I am worthy because God has said so.
Love is changeless and therefore so are you and I. Nothing that we have ever done or will ever do can mar your perfection in the eyes of God. You're deserving in His eyes because of what you are, not because of what you do. What you do or don't do is not what determines your essential value--your growth perhaps, but not your value. That is why God is totally approving, and accepting of you, exactly as you are. What's not to like? You were not created in sin; you were created in love.
Marianne Williamson.

I find this so moving and so divinely on point. I get this, it speaks to my deepest part of my soul and I know I am on the right path. Where it leads, is where I should be. My faith is swelling and God is pleased.

That was a great quote, something i may have to print out and tag to my pc...i've been doing this lately, positive quotes that keep me moving forward when the days go grey...i promised myself and God that i will keep it moving, stay in the light, welcome his glory, and walk in my destiny...i see you are doing the same, it's a really good thing.
