God, what would you have me say and do today?

God, what would you have me say and do today?
Be as gentle as you can today;
be as gentle as your humanity will allow.
And then, go further-
be even more gentle.
Your strength will remain.
In fact, it takes great inner strength to be gentle.
In this you will surely be tested.
Remember that spiritual progress
demands that your ego be let go.
Use fierce love-
a love committed to love-
to burn through the layers of hardness.
Summon the great strength that I have
already placed within you
You can do it.
Have no doubts.
It may even be somewhat amusing and fun,
if you stay awake to the tricks of your ego
and do not let it
Edge God Out.
Be gentle…
Be gentle…
Be gentle.
