WHEN I AM CONFUSED
As we tread our individual paths through life we are sometimes diverted into side-roads where we feel lost and confused. We seek the advice of others, or we sit and “stew”, mentally sketching images of failure and defeat. “If only I knew,” we cry. “If only” is the hallmark of the confused, bewildered human mind.
In Truth we are training ourselves to step out of the if only” consciousness, and into the security of the Christ Light.
You may seem to be in a tunnel of darkness, unable to see your next step. But every tunnel has an end and if you look with your heart you shall “see” that Light which signifies hope and victory. It may be only a pin- point of light at first; but it will grow as you keep your vision centered on the Christ within you. Say the following prayer statement to yourself until you get the “feel” of it and then speak it aloud—quietly, but with conviction and faith:
I Turn to the Christ Within For Inspiration and Guidance
. . . I am a spiritual being, one with the Mind of God in which resides all wisdom. Just as a lost and bewildered child turns to his parent for guidance when faced with a new and baffling experience; so I turn eagerly and trustingly to the Father within.
Through the Christ in me, the Father’s Image-like- ness,
I receive new confidence, new understanding and new strength.
Inspiration floods my mind and I know what to do.
