Reading & Pondering Today 11-1

imageThere’s a divine order to the spiritual universe, and chaos of any kind is temporary. Faith is simply recognizing this. Whatever the ego casts down, God will ultimately lift back up. This is not just a belief; it’s spiritual intelligence. And spiritual intelligence gives us strength and fortitude. Faith as a container for our emotions is important because it gives us certainty in the face of uncertainty. During times of suffering it keeps us above the emotional waterline, giving us the strength to endure by knowing that whatever it is, this too shall pass. There is a huge emotional difference between “I’m depressed and I feel like this pain will never end” and “I’m depressed but I know that I’ll get through this.” It can be very dark on certain nights, but there is no question whether dawn will come. No matter what has happened in our lives, miracles are possible.”

Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “Tears to Triumph.”
