Tonight I was talking to my children on the phone while they were at their Dad’s house and for the millionth time, he abruptly hung up the phone while the kids were in the middle of a sentence.
The tears were streaming down my face once again until a friend gently reminded me that God never hangs up on us. She is always on the line!
Never for a moment can we be separated or disconnected from divine Love.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote an article in the late 1800’s entitled “Love Your Enemies.” In it, she wrote:
“We have no enemies. Whatever envy, hatred, revenge – the most remorseless motives that govern mortal mind – whatever these try to do, shall “work together for good to them that love God.”
The seeming bad things that happen to us really shall “work together for good to them that love God” as long as we demand to turn our suffering into blessing for the good of mankind.
By turning to God in every situation and demanding to get to know Him/Her better, we have no choice but to grow.
Mrs. Eddy also writes in the same article:
“If you have been badly wronged, forgive and forget: God will recompense this wrong and punish, more severely than you could, him who has striven to injure you. Never return evil for evil.”
Forgiving and forgetting often seem nearly impossible. But it is requires of us. When we don’t forgive, it is only ourselves we are hurting. No good can come from us holding on to hurtful thoughts.
My children, or your children, can never be cut off from their Father/Mother God. THey can’t be forced to be without their true Mother.
My grieving heart has resulted in world-wide prayers for all mothers and children who seem to be separated for one reason or another. There truly can be no separation from divine Love. Her embrace spans all space and is felt every moment of every day.
As mothers, we can never truly lose our children. no good can ever be withheld from us. God created us as totally complete and with all good imaginable. We should never ever accept anything less, nor label ourselves as victims. It may seem someone has done something horrific to us, but the more we identify with this, the more we will experience it.
So, I love the thought that God never hangs up on us. She is “on the line” speaking to our consciousness every single moment. The connection can never be lost or cut in and out or disconnected all together. There is no way to be without Her call.
I was eating in a restaurant the other day and a song was playing by Josh Groban that is so awesome. Here’s the first part of the song:
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.
First of all, when we are down, we have to be still and wait and God comes to us (really because God never left us!) I love it because God DOES raise us up to more than we can be. He raises us up to walk on the stormy seas. He lifts us up to be and do more than we could ever do on our own.
So, I’m going to rest in the knowledge that God never hangs up on me or my children, or on you.
God, Thank You for creating every child in your image and likeness. Thank you for giving us an eternal abundance of everything we could ever need. Thank you for loving us with an indescribable Love than can never be taken or diminished. I love you, God!
May all the women and children and yes, men too, feel the inseparable love of our Father/Mother God and rest in the understanding that She is never disconnected from Her ideas. Loss or grief are never options in Gods creations. All good is yours and mine right this very instant. Demand to experience it! Demand to be free from any sense of anything unlike good.
