I am sustained by the Love of God.

1. 1Here is the answer to every problem that will confront you, today and tomorrow and throughout time. 2In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God. 3Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols; pills, money, “protective” clothing, influence, prestige, being liked, knowing the “right” people, and an endless list of forms of nothingness that you endow with magical powers.

2. 1All these things are your replacements for the Love of God. 2All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification. 3They are songs of praise to the ego. 4Do not put your faith in the worthless. 5It will not sustain you.

3. 1Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances. 2It will lift you out of every trial, and raise you high above all the perceived dangers of this world into a climate of perfect peace and safety. 3It will transport you into a state of mind that nothing can threaten, nothing can disturb, and where nothing can intrude upon the eternal calm of the Son of God.

4. 1Put not your faith in illusions. 2They will fail you. 3Put all your faith in the Love of God within you; eternal, changeless and for­ever unfailing. 4This is the answer to whatever confronts you to­day. 5Through the Love of God within you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence. 6Tell yourself this often today. 7It is a declaration of release from the belief in idols. 8It is your acknowledgment of the truth about yourself.

5. 1For ten minutes, twice today, morning and evening, let the idea for today sink deep into your consciousness. 2Repeat it, think about it, let related thoughts come to help you recognize its truth, and allow peace to flow over you like a blanket of protec­tion and surety. 3Let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God. 4Such is the Kingdom of Heaven. 5Such is the resting place where your Father has placed you forever.
