“ ‘…Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.’ [God] whispered, ‘My precious child, I love you and will never leave you; never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.’ ”

Dear Prosperity Partners and Friends,

‘Namaste,’ I salute the Divinity Within YOU! I pray that you are well, happy, and taking life one day at a time. As I’ve always said, ‘when one day at a time seems too much to bear, take life one hour at a time or one minute at a time.’ Stay in the Present moment of your life. Be all you can be in every moment and do not allow worry to rob you of the gift of NOW!

In the midst of your life and all of its happenings, know that you rest in the heart of the
Universal Centre of Truth spiritual community. We intentionally hold the highest vision of sufficiency, love, health and faith as it relates to you and all that concerns you. God is still being God and God is you in coming through in miraculous and awesome ways for you, NOW! You are farther along the path of your life than you know. Please keep going forward. Refuse to grow weary.

Last Sunday’s Worship Service reminded us of a universal spiritual truth that was held dear by
Universal Foundation for Better Living’s Founder, The Rev. Dr. Johnnie Colemon. Dear Johnnie
would say again and again that God told her, ‘Johnnie, I will not fail you or forsake you.’ (See
Joshua 1:5)

God says the same thing to each of us every single day. ‘I am with you. I will not fail you.’ Rev. Claudia’s powerful lesson encouraged us to keep our eye on God because God cannot fail.

Here are some key points of her lesson:

1. You can unequivocally know to trust God to lead you to victory. God wants you to know this.
Sometimes we place our trust in others when God, alone, is always with us. God doesn’t abandon us, but we often abandon God when we turn to seek help elsewhere. Jonah turned away, but when he turned back to God, he was delivered from hardship.

2. God sustains us in every circumstance.
God is with you in every season of life. God takes delight in being God. There is no variation or change in God. Therefore, when facing any challenge, say: ‘God in me is coming through.’

3. God’s faithfulness is unquestionable.
Have you noticed that God has an impeccable track record? It is wise to rely on God and to trust God all the time, for everything.

4. When we are certain that God is with us at every turn, we live life confident that God doesn’t change. Things may seem uncertain, but God is always a certainty.
God is our unfailing Source and God cannot fail. The outcomes may not look as we wish them to, but we must never think that God has failed to come through. Never believe that God has abandoned you and left you all alone.


Let’s pray

God,

I know You are here. Open my eyes that I may see evidence of Your presence. Open my understanding to know that You have fully equipped me with all things necessary to achieve, to press on, to prosper, to love and be loved, and to express wholeness in every way. Help me to lift my faith to declare and accept that Your plan for my life is perfect. It is fulfilled, even NOW! I give thanks that the tide has turned and wholeness, in every way, is mine.’

Amen.

Empowered to Get It Done,
Rev. Sheila
