“As you communicate with your Source of Being, know that you’re awakening a part of yourself that’s just like it.” – Jim Dyer
In the calendar “Quote of the Day,” I am reminded how important it is to stay in contact with God and share my thoughts with Him. Prior to becoming enlightened, I rarely prayed at all and when I did, it was usually half-hearted prayer. But as the difficult times in my life became too much to bear, I found that God was my constant companion and I could talk to Him at any time I wished.
There are people in our lives that we consider friends and mentors and most are just a quick phone call away. God provides those people in our lives that can help us decipher what’s going on in our minds. Many times they have faced similar circumstances and can relate to the situation we’re going through at the time.
But then there are those times when nothing short of a conversation with God in prayer will do. In the darkest hours of the night or the brightest rays of the sunny day, He is there to give us guidance, wisdom, and strength to face whatever might be facing us in that particular time. He is the God of all consolation and wants His children to come to Him in prayer, both in good times and bad.
And as we do this, we awaken the Holy Spirit that dwells in each one of us and begin to think more with the mind of God and less like that of an Earthly being. And while complete conformity is not to be attained, we certainly can become more God-like in our thoughts, words, and deeds.
