Simple Grace - - Letter From The Editor -

Dear child, have you ever been in a place so ru­ral that you needed to care­fully turn the ra­dio tun­ing dial this way and that for many min­utes be­fore you could find a sta­tion? If so, you know the frus­tra­tion of sens­ing there’s a broad­cast you could ac­cess if only you got the tun­ing just right.

Re­ceiv­ing love and guid­ance from Me is not so dif­fer­ent: Al­though the Holy

Spirit is al­ways with you and al­ways “broad­cast­ing,” you need to open your heart, align your soul and still your mind in or­der to make sense of what I’m send­ing to you through My Helper.

Sound com­pli­cated? It isn’t…thanks to love. Love tunes your heart, your soul and your mind to the Spirit’s “broad­cast fre­quency” with­out re­ly­ing on how skill­ful or knowl­edge­able you are. That’s why send­ing Me love is the fastest, eas­i­est and most di­rect way to unite with Me.

Let’s try right now: Sit com­fort­ably and let your thoughts sub­side. Treat worry like a buzzing bum­ble­bee that comes into your field of view and then moves on:

You don’t need to fol­low it with your eyes or your mind. Re­lax and let your heart fill with love for Me. Feel the joy of your Fa­ther’s cre­ation. Feel grat­i­tude for what I’ve done for you. Send Me those beau­ti­ful feel­ings as though di­rect from your heart to Mine. You’ll feel your spirit lifted as I re­spond. There: You’ve found Me! —Je­sus to the Pharisees,

Matthew 22:37–38

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first com­mand­ment.”
