We're welcoming back campers!

Prayer Watch G.E.M. Pause to acknowledge all you do is for and from God! — Don’t try to go it alone! "Wait on God…” Citation S19 (SH p. 323:9) is a CedarS favorite met for water-skiing. Mary Baker Eddy says there: "Beholding the infinite tasks of Truth, we pause, wait on God. Then we push onward, until boundless thought walks enraptured and conception unconfined is winged to reach the divine glory." After saying "Hit it!" for the boat to start pulling you, it's all too easy for most beginners to lean forward right away, as if to get up "on their own." This causes quick nose-dives. However, when we PAUSE, waiting to acknowledge the boat, or really God, as the true power of the event, able to pull us through it, God precedes and PRE-SERVES us – and we express such dominion that we almost feel able to walk on the water. (A successful pausing posture for skiers to mimic is that of a testifier getting halfway up out of his seat and pausing for a few seconds before proceeding, because another testifier got up at the same time.)

In like manner, when we realize that life is about God, about Love, and not about us (as physical beings) or because of us (as sexual beings) we are free to merely reflect, instead of originate, the "incontrovertible" perfection of man AS A SPIRITUAL BEING, as the "image, reflection, of God. . . neither inverted" ('reversed in position, order, or relationship') "nor subverted," ('overturned from the foundation: RUINED: perverted or corrupted by an undermining of morals, allegiance, or faith') "but upright and Godlike." (S&H 200:19, with Merriam Webster's definitions in parenthesis)
