Lesson #

(187) I bless the world because I bless myself.



Do not abandon Love. Remember this; whatever you may think about yourself, whatever you may think about the world, your Father needs you and will call to you until you come to Him in peace at last. (S-3.IV.10:6-7)

A Better Way

December/January Issue of A Better Way #137 This month's article is one by Greg entitled "Miracles Depend on Timing: Trusting in the Process of Positive Change." Jesus once told Helen that "miracles depend on timing," and that their effectiveness depends on a "three-way readiness": Jesus' readiness, the miracle worker's readiness, and the miracle receiver's readiness. In this article, Greg expands on this idea and shows how it can help us become more trusting, confident, and patient with the process as we extend miracles of love to others.
