I am here, Helen.
Yes I was, and you were benefited by the services, although you did not enjoy the full blessings of the fact that Jesus writes through you. You should not let that thought enter into your workshop as it is only one of the blessings that you can enjoy if you will try.
You did not pray to God as you should have done. He was the one that you should have thought of more.
Yes, I know, but they were only trying to feel the presence of God and the Holy Spirit. You did not get the full benefit of the service. Yes, that is so, but you must not let that idea prevent you from worshiping God, as He does not want anyone to worship Him in any other way than in Spirit and in Truth.
I am your grandmother who is dictating this message to Helen, because she does not understand yet the fullness of God's Love, and I am trying to let you know that you must worship God only and let your heart go out to Him in thankfulness and love.
Jesus, of course, is the one for you to keep in holy rapport with. So do not let the thought that he is not a God prevent you from loving and serving him. You must not think of him as your saviour from sin and error, but merely as one who is interested in you and wants to write through you, and this will help you to progress.
His blood does not save you, nor does his death, but his love and teachings do save you from sin and death. He is not going to let you feel that he is not your friend, unless you turn away from him to get the love of earth by things and pleasures.
Yes, but you were not praying to the Father as you should have done. Do not let the thought that you are going to write for him keep you from praying to the Father or you will not advance in your spiritual life. You are not in condition to write more tonight or I would write fully on just what you should know and will do so later. You will soon know just what I mean.
Go to bed and rest.
Goodnight, your Grandmother
Helen, goodnight, with all my love.
