Joel’s Meditation –
The italicized portions of the book are spontaneous meditations which have come to the Joel during periods of uplifted consciousness and not in any sense intended to be used as affirmations, denials, or formulas. They serve as examples of the free flowing of the Spirit. As the reader practices the Presence, he, too, in his exalted moments, will receive ever-new and fresh inspirations as the outpouring of the Spirit.
Father, all I want is my relationship with Thee, my conscious realization of the Christ – not for any reason, just for the joy of sitting here with the Christ. Christ liveth my life. The moment I have Christ, I have no life of my own to live; the responsibility is on His shoulders. From now on all I have to do is to follow where He leads, into green pastures, beside the still water.
