Think about what it means to live my life in Harmony with the willl of God.

This means that I am daily, hourly or moment by moment checking in with the promptings of the spirit. This means that I know that he is Father and I am his child and he can guide me through this life better than I can even concieve of being able to on my own. It means that I am tuned in to the spirit for decisions, that I seek things out in my own mind, but not before asking for his involvement and whenever possible I return to confirm decisions I am making. It means that anything in my life that is causing an interuption or disturbance with the his messenger and member of the God head the Holy Ghost, I need to cease or remove myself from such.

In thinking about his enabling power coming into my life as I turn to him how do I feel about letting God direct my life?

I believe it makes sense logically. I fear it though. I feel this decision to allow him to direct me takes a lot of faith to replace this fear. I suppose it takes a lifetime of faith. I am hopeful that a disciplined study of his WILL will prove fruitful and bring happiness, I am a child and a rebelious child at times I suppose. I am also affraid of what will be asked. This fear is not for the present it is for the future and I must have faith that he will ask only that which he makes me equal to. Again easier and more logically thought then performed. I feel peaceful to face these obstacles to me turning over my will.

For today I can begin the habit of constantly deciding to turn over my will.

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
