Getting to the Truth Where are the “Delta(s)” in your life? Are you ready to rumble with the thoughts, feelings, and actions inorder to get to the meaning and wisdom of your experiences? Can you invite God into that process? (Psalm 139)

Slide 19

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24

Slide 20

PRAYER FOR TRUTH Beloved Light of Love, Somewhere within my troubled scared mind Is the truth of my beloved self. A self that is not weak, but strong, Not flawed or damaged, But whole and perfect.

Slide 21

Not full of pain, but basking in peace. Not doubtful, but sure. Not proud, but humble, Confident, loving, serene and joyful.

Slide 22

I am ready to travel a new road, A road of gentleness and grace. I have been caught and playing in a world of deception, A world of sickness and addiction. A world of limitation and regret.

Slide 23

In this moment, my Dear God, I choose to be released from all this pain. Your Will for me is so beautiful,  So light-filled, so magnificent.

Slide 24

Within the embrace of Your Will for me All negativity will be transformed. I join Your Will for me. I invoke Your Light.

Slide 25

I am no longer willing to be a prisoner of the world I made. I receive the Truth of Your Peace that replaces the hell  Of this limited world.

Slide 26

I am ready for a new way. I move out of my belief in weakness into Your Eternal Strength, Out of this little self I made, into You! Amen
