Postal Delivery

The following pieces were written earlier this year when my mother wasn't well. She's now feeling a lot better.


Postal Delivery

I believe the Omnipotent Light/Creative Intelligence/God/Love/Spirit/Source is everywhere present but what we, as humans, are tapping into is only the tip of the iceberg. I believe in order to experience Its full Power, it's important to acknowledge Its presence at all times and let the Power work for you.

Because my mother has been having difficulty getting up and down the stairs, she usually waits for me to pick up her mail. As she was expecting an important letter, she said she would try and go down and pick them up when they arrive. She believed God will help her.

"The Light of God is already here and now, mum," I said. "Instead of asking God to help you, why not let God pick up the letters for you? Then you won't have to struggle."

Later, mum told me that just before she was going to pick up her letters, the doorbell rang and it was the postman delivering a parcel. When she opened the door to let him in, he not only brought up the parcel he picked up her letters too.

"See what I mean about letting Light do the work?" I said.

Mum said she understood.

Light is everywhere present and always perfect.
Light does everything when I let It.

Postal Delivery - Part 2

"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." James 2: 26


I'm very scientific in my approach to life. I believe in testing out principles I believe in to see if they have any practical application. Only then do I share my discoveries and experiences with others. I don't obviously expect anyone to accept my experiences as gospel; I expect people to test the ideas for themselves to see if they work for them or not.

Here's one example.

When I went home I picked up my mother's mail. She said that letter had arrived in the afternoon. She said when the first post arrived she didn't feel like going downstairs to pick them up. She remembered what I had said about asking God to do everything so she prayed, "God, please send someone to pick up those letters!" Then she went back to rest in her chair.

Soon, the doorbell rang. She wondered who it could be as she wasn't expecting any visitors. It was a man from the electricity company who had come round to read the meter. As the man was coming up the stairs, mum asked if he could pick up her letters but he said he'd already done it.

After mum shared her experience, I said, "That's great, mum! See, God doesn't play favourites! What works for me can also work for you. You asked Him to send someone to pick up your letters and He arranged it."

"I didn't even think of how it would happen. If I'd been wondering how it would happen, it probably wouldn't have happened."

"Exactly!" I said. "It's not for you to worry about the how. As long as you trust in God, then God will always make a way where there appears to be no way."

I said to mum that because she'd asked God to send someone to pick up the letters, that's exactly what happened. I believe if she'd asked God to pick up the letters for her, she would have been cutting out the middle man. Then God's power is free to unleash in many different ways. Mum could have felt the Power giving her the strength to walk up and down the stairs effortlessly, or the Power could have still appeared as the electricity man, or someone else might have called round.

Still, it's good to see mum testing out ideas for herself.

"Faith without works is dead."
