I Like My Religion

By Vernon Shields

There is a spirit in man; and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. (Job 32:8)

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
(Ephesians 4:6)

God is Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
(John 4:24)

My religion binds me back to my God and my good. My religion helps me to understand that God is with me and is ever willing to assist me through each experience. My religion reveals to me that God is ever available to me, that He listens, that He cares, that He loves me with a boundless, eternal Love.

My religion is a practical religion that is ever with me assisting me in my work. It inspires me to lofty goals and assures me that I can accomplish whatever I conceive myself as being. My religion reveals to me that God works through me to accomplish the work I find at hand to be doing. God works with my hands and His Loving Nature inspires in me beautiful thoughts. With God I can accomplish.

My religion reveals to me the Healing Power of God’s Nature. As I practice my religion, I practice the Presence of the Living God and I discover that God lives in me, through me, as me. My religion assures me that God’s Healing Presence is always with me and is the Healing Spirit that restores me to my original state of Wholeness, if I become sick. My religion reveals to me that God is the Spirit of Wholeness, or Holiness and that this state of Wholeness is my birthright, my heritage, and my salvation.

My religion is a satisfying experience. It reveals to me the Beauty of God’s Nature that is found in all of nature, that is found in His Kingdom which He implanted within me, and that is found in all things visible and invisible. God’s Beauty is without end, nor can it be measured. His Goodness is boundless and ever at hand. His love is Supreme and His Love dwells within me and reigns supreme in my life. His Peace is my peace and His Peace rules in my heart each day.

My religion is a joy and as I meditate upon God’s Nature ever with me this Truth becomes a satisfying experience to my soul. It is then that I am glad in the Lord. It is then that I realize that the eternal call is to “come up higher.” I follow this path. I respond to the Higher Good that is within me. I LIKE MY RELIGION.

My meditation of Him shall be sweet, I will be glad in the Lord. (Psalm 104:34)
