I stand humbly before a power that is in me but not of me.
I am not the divine source, but merely a faucet through which its waters flow into the world.
I find power as a human being as I defer to the power of the spirit.
Placing myself in service to God, I pray that His love move through me to bless the world. I take a step back today with my personality, that I might more clearly reflect His gentleness and love.
As I step back, He leads the way for me to follow.
Meekness and mildness carry invisible power. The meek shall inherit the earth because of their strength, having stepped back and allowed a greater power to flow through them.
Today I choose to step back with the force of my personality, that I might step forward with the force of my spirit.”
Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “A Year of Miracles.”
