God and....

Even more thanks to Katherine Saux in SOM for this Daily Guide for July 24 which is so good I want to quote it and share it in its entirety.

“Until we have God, we have nothing; but at the very moment we have God, we have all there is in the world. There is no such thing as God and….” Joel Goldsmith

“How much of this Infinite Good is ours? All of it!” SOM, p 50

“One of my favorite mantras is, ‘I am the honored guest at the banquet of life.’ It reminds me that God’s goodness is constantly and generously available to me. It also reminds me that God is my host, the source of all, who continuously urges me to eat my fill of blessings and joy and other good things.

“Joel Goldsmith takes this thought even further. He chalenges us to know that in having God, we already have all that is. Jesus said the same thing when he patiently explained to his disciples that the Father know we need things like clothing and food and shelter. Jesus went on to urge us to seek first the kingdom of heaven, then ‘all these things’ would be added to us. Truly, Spirit supports its own expression.

“This does not mean that we do not have to work for our good; remember that God can only do for us what It can do through us. Not even the Lord of the Universe will force us to partake of Its banquet. Sitting at the table and helping ourselves to the feast means doing what it takes to manifest the feast in the world of humanity – things like getting an education or honing our skills. So pull up a chair, unfold your napking and dig in. There’s more where that came from.”

Affirmation: Today, I remember that I am the honored guest at the banquet of life. God is my nourishment and my source of all. God’s grace bestows all good things on me even before I ask.
