April 10 - Humble Miracles

James: Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

To me, "humble yourselves" means that I am my truest self, my most vulnerable self, my self that is not my ego, before the Lord.

Recently I listened to Michael Bernard Beckwith of the Agape Institute when he talked about the Self without the ego. I believe he referenced a Japanese saying, to view yourself as the self (face) before your parents were born.

As mentioned in an earlier blog, we may have inherited our father's eyes or our mother's nose, but our soul belongs to God. That is the self (face) God most wants to spend time with and to see on a regular basis. That is the self with which we may need to become reacquainted. That is the miracle self, before worldly thoughts and limiting beliefs entered our lives.

Recently, I was chatting with a friend about just such a thought. He mentioned that he didn't have self-love. I told him about the birth of my first child. How that child was/is a miracle from the very beginning. That he is a miracle. I am a miracle. Everyone on earth is a miracle because they were all born as miracles. The fact that one sperm and one egg produced each miracle here today is awesome (by awesome, I mean that pertaining to God).

Is it possible to be humble before God, whilst knowing we are miracles? Of course! That is the part God knows and loves about us. When a baby is born, there is no ego attached to that child, no end game in mind, and no limiting beliefs. That baby is full of God's potential and love. A baby lives in the present moment and allows us the opportunity (forces us) to live in the present moment as well.

May we spend time today in God's presence, as our humble self, shedding those limiting beliefs and that ego, so we can bask in His love, believing we are His true miracles. Living our lives as the true miracles we are.

Romans: How then was it reckoned to him? Was it before or after he had been circumcised? It was not after, but before he was circumcised.

1 Corinthians: We are fools for the sake of Christ, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute.

James: Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
