God goes with me wherever I go.
St. Paul writes in one of his letters to the Corinthians, “If God is with you who can be against you?” Deep down God is always with us because it is from God that we have emerged into this world in our bodies.
Are you a soul in a body or a body with a soul? You are a soul, an extension of the Divine Essence which temporarily is incarnated in a body. Do not mistake your true identity.
The third step of Alcoholic Anonymous states “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand Him.” God, of course, is always with us because God is the ground of our existence. We only think we have separated ourselves from Him in our arrogance and ignorance.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which comes from God. We further affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which takes us within to our essence past all appearances and illusions.
Today, we are asked to sit quietly for five minutes and go beneath the cloud cover that we call our lives and just become aware of Love which is our natural inheritance. There is a place there of peace and bliss and we realize that God goes with me wherever I go.
