May 2 – Souls That Smile
To conquer adverse circumstances, conquer yourselves. The answer to the desire of My Disciples to follow Me was “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
To accomplish much, be much. In all cases the doing, to be well-doing, must be the mere unconscious expression of the being.
Fear not, fear not, all is well. Let the day be full of little prayers to Me, little turnings toward me. The smiles of the soul at one it loves.
Men call the Father the First Cause. Yes! See Him as the First Cause of every warm ray, every color in the sunset, every gleam on the water, every beautiful flower, every planned pleasure.
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving
one another, even as God for Christ’s sake
hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
