PRAYER RESPONSE

LUNCH WITH GOD



There once was a little boy who wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with Twinkies and a six-pack of root beer, and he started his journey.


When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old woman. She was sitting in the park, staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old lady looked hungry, so he offered her a Twinkie.

She gratefully accepted it and smiled at him. Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered her a root beer. Once again, she smiled at him. The boy was delighted. They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling, yet they never said a word.

As it grew dark, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to leave. Before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned around, ran back to the old woman and gave her a hug. She gave him her biggest smile ever.

When the boy opened the door to his own home a short time later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face.

She asked him, "What did you do today that made you so happy? He replied, "I had lunch with God." But before his mother could respond, he added, "You know what? She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her neighbor was stunned by the look of peace on her face, and she asked, "What did you do today that made you so happy?" She replied, "I ate Twinkies in the park with God." But before her neighbor responded, she added, "You know, he's much younger than I expected."

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring. All of which have the potential to make someone's day a very special one, or even turn someone's life around.

Part Of The Whole


What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.  But if that drop was not in the ocean,
I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
- Mother Teresa


When I consider the wonder of God's creation - the stars, planets, animals, people, and so much more - I catch a glimpse of the variety and vastness of life.

God's world is teeming with life, even in the spots that seem barren.  And supporting all the activity that is going on and coming forth is an order which never ceases to sustain and uphold.

So whenever my life seems out of order, I remember the wonder of God's creation and the order that holds it together.  It may be in order for me to make adjustments in the way I think and in what I do.  But as I make those adjustments, I remember that I am part of a wonderful whole that is divine order.


My life is in order because I am an intricate part of an orderly whole.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 83


God has no selfish motive
To love you...
He is bliss... in bliss always...
He loves for love is His nature
He is always aware
Of all as His Self...
He knows not anyone or anything
As the other...
The one who tastes
Even a drop of that love
Peels the unreality
Of his individual self
And merges in His expansive endless truth.



(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)

Divine Thought - 107


DECISION

VEDA 375





Many of you may be wealthy. Many of you are scholars. Your greatness will not be judged merely by your possessions. To what extent you are spending your wealth in a good way, to what extent you are using your learning to good purpose, to what extent you are using your intellect for the good of the community, that is what counts with Bhagavan.

Love is the key to open the doors locked by egoism and greed.

Alive!


Life begets life.  Energy creates energy.
It is be spending oneself that one becomes rich.
- Sarah Bernhardt


What a glorious feeling it is to know that the healing, energizing life of God is surging throughout my entire body, renewing me and making me well!  How wonderful it is to be alive!
So whether I am involved in a physical activity or sitting at rest, I take time to give thanks to God.  I give thanks for the divine life that is present in every cell of my body, and I express my appreciation in heartfelt prayer.  I am completely in awe of the physical body - a work of art created by God.

From the top of my head to the tips of my toes, I feel God's life within me!  I am alive with the life of God!  "Thank You, thank You, God, for this wonderful body and for the ability to understand and appreciate myself as one of Your great works!"


I am alive with the life of God!


(From : 'Daily Word' magazine by Silent Unity, a world wide prayer ministry) 

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
