Keep the faith, the faith in your God to use you as a blessing, as a channel of understanding to others.
Based on Edgar Cayce reading 816-3
While working with children at an art museum, Amy came in one day unprepared for class and planned to ad-lib a bit. But upon her arrival she discovered that today people were going to videotape her program for promotional purposes and that one of her major financial supporters was present to observe.
She said a quick prayer, affirming to herself, "Possibilities will open. I will be a channel to do what is right for the children."
As she relaxed, her inner voice told her to go to her supply room. She was attracted to the yellow construction paper and began to cut it up into triangles, not knowing at all what she was going to do with those pieces of paper. When the children arrived, she gave each child a different-shaped paper to hold. Then they went to the gallery and stopped at the painting Amy's assistant had chosen for that day. To her utter amazement this painting had yellow triangles of all sizes in it. The children then began to match their paper triangles with the ones in the painting. They talked about colors and shapes and how these go together in a painting.
Amy relearned from this experience how to handle anxiety: She needed to go into an open space within, get her ego out of the way, and let the Creative Forces come through.
APPLICATION: The next time you face an anxious situation pray before you begin, set your ego aside, and affirm that you are a channel for God's work.
