Lee: “I am an aspiring student. My question is, why is it that people of God at times are denied favor? For instance, I have been praying that God would help me to raise funds so that I can further my college education, but I have not been able to find help. I am beginning to lose confidence in my faith.”
The Voice for Love: “Dearest One, thank you for opening your heart to Spirit for an answer to why it seems that your wish is not being granted by God. You imply that God is withholding some good from you, yet that is never the case. You have been asking God to help you raise money for school. Please remember that God’s grace is always yours and God’s abundance is yours as well.
“When you are in your quiet place of meditation, please take a very deep, slow breath and as you do, begin to relax into a peaceful place within your heart. Allow your confusion, impatience and doubt to flow out of your body and mind. In place of these, allow the peace of God and the love of God to fill you. Breathe in gratitude to God for everything you can think of in your life for which you are grateful. Begin to allow your heart to fill with thanks and appreciation. Affirm all of the good that you have in your life – every little bit of good that you can think of.
“As you breathe in this gratitude and peace, allow a prayer to arise in your mind. This is your prayer: Dear God, I thank you for all of the good that I have in my life. I am grateful for the abundance of life I see all around me. Your glory, majesty and overflowing grace are everywhere to be seen and appreciated. Thank you for showing me how to allow abundance to flow to me and through me. Help me to see all the ways you are providing for my abundance, and help me to be grateful for them. I fully release everything that I thought I knew about my life to you for your blessing. I faithfully and patiently await the complete realization of my life’s purpose, all in divine timing. So it is. Amen.
“This, or a similar prayer in your own words, will help you to release any fears about whether your desires will be realized. It will also help you to rest in patient faith that you are being led step by step to your greatest good. God’s plans do not just involve you, dear one, but there are many others who will be near you in the fulfillment of your life’s unfolding. Trust that all is well and that you may safely release the plans you have made into God’s hands. Every day affirm that you are being led and that all is well. Know that the good God has for you far outweighs the good you have planned for yourself. Pray believing. Smile and be happy and enjoy life every day. Allow all that God has for you to come to your open heart, in its own time and in its own way.
“God bless you! All is well and you are loved beyond measure.”
