There are people who could be called Godless. For them, God does not exist. In fact, if you ask them, they might tell you that they are the only God they know or desire to know. You might think of these people as do-it-for-yourselfers. In themselves they trust.
Inspite of their lack of belief as far as God is concerned, these people lead normal, healthy lives. You might even determine that many of them are quite successful in the worldly sense. They are professionally stable and financially secure. They have mates and are pretty decent parents. They may even be loyal and trustworthy friends. Although some of us would be horrified at the thought of trying to get by without some connection to God, so-called Godless people seem to make it through life fairly well. In fact, some of them seem to make out a great deal better than the God-knowing, God-loving, God-fearing folks.
Whatever you put your faith and the energy of your belief into will work for you if you trust it to work. Trust, not what you trust, or what you call what you trust, is the key ingredient. If you believe in yourself, if you trust your judgement and back it up with your sincere energy and effort, chances are you will hit the bull’s-eye. It would probably take a little pressure off you if you understood the concepts of grace, mercy, and the divine love of God. You might have a lot less stress if you could lift your hands and voice every now and then just to say, “Thanks You!” for Divine order, Divine timing and Divine presense. But none of this is neccessary unless you believe it is necessary.
Until today, you may have believed that, “In God I Trust” was a prerequisite to a successful life. Just for today, allow yourself and others the freedom to choose the name of what they believe in. Examine how you trust rather than the name you call what you trust.
Today I am devoted to examining and exploring the energy I give to the things I trust!
