“He plucked me out of a pit of confusion, even out of the quicksand; he placed my feet on a rock and established my steps.” (Psalms 40: 2, International Standard Version)

Confusion is not a natural state. We don’t need to feel as if our thoughts are in a muddle or if as if decisions and right footsteps are elusive or unclear. We have a rescue from this belief chaos and lack of clarity and that feeling of overwhelm that often comes with this confusion.

We have God’s loving Christ to reach out to us, right where we are, and pull us out and up above the fray to a clear line of vision, where all things settle and make sense. This inspired Comforter is always at the ready to show us that we are not alone, but, rather, at one with God, established on a rock that is never unsteady and always under our feet.

When we feel confused and afraid, we can turn away from the human senses and opinion, its pros and cons and ups and downs, and instead turn to God, to Love. The Christ is with us and at the ready. There is always a clear answer. There is always a loving presence. There is always harmony where the discord seems to be—a ready and established concord to feel and know.

Your steps are established. God’s purpose for you is at hand and His clear voice of wisdom is ready to lead the way home to peace.

“…a man’s words depend on what fills his heart. A good man gives out good—from the goodness stored in his heart;” (Matthew 12: 34-35, JB Phillips New Testament)

What is in your heart? What lies within the core of your being? What truly motivates you and makes you feel happy and whole?

Know your heart’s true intention. Keep in touch with that inner goodness which no person or circumstance can take away from you. Connect with this heart of love regularly and let it lead you in what you say and in what you do. Our words, uttered from a place of sincerity and good intention, are healing balm to others and to the world. Likewise, when we let our conversation proceed from fear and resentment, we bring to others a spirit that is no good to the world or to ourselves.

We do have a rich storehouse of good in our heart. We have an abundance of kindness, understanding, wisdom, compassion, patience, good will, within us. God put it there to bear witness to His own purpose. As we recognize this, it leads us in our words and works. It also ushers in the true serenity and confidence that we may seek for ourselves. We will never really feel contentment and peace when we let wrong motives guide us. It simply isn’t authentic to us. It isn’t honest.

The Truth is that you are made of good. You have it abundantly within you. In being and doing good, you are being yourself, true to what is natural, comfortable, right, and powerfully healing.

truehappiness

“Experience should be the school of virtue and human happiness should proceed from man’s highest nature.” (Science and Health, page 65)

It seems that trials would come to us and beat us down. But, in fact, we can and should always be at the ready to be instructed by our experiences into a greater understanding, and into the peace that comes naturally along with it. We can recognize that our lives are schools and we are forever children in them. We aren’t expected to have the answers, but to continue to be taught, to grow, and to be clearer each day on what Life is truly all about.

Don’t allow that mortal mind—that doubting, judging ego—to tell you what your story is and what it means. Your story is about an increasing awareness of your own goodness, deserving, and power. Your virtues are coming to light and you will see them clearly if you aren’t too busy analyzing your seeming vices, mistakes, fears.

Human happiness is the natural result of divine awareness. The more we begin to know who we really are as children of God—and very simply, as children—the greater, more honest, peaceful, and powerful our lives will be. We come to see our lives as a blooming flower, each day displaying more petals of purity and sweetness and loveliness—uniquely beautiful and also strengthened through growth, humility, and gratitude.

“…your light will shine like the dawning sun, and you will quickly be healed.
Your honesty will protect you as you advance, and the glory of the Lord will defend you from behind.”
(Isaiah 58: 8, Contemporary English Version)

Keep the faith. Stay true to what God has told you about yourself and about Life. You are made to radiate His perfection and this light does not wane with time, phases of human experience, or material circumstances. You are the very glow of God’s own well-being and nothing can delay ever-presence from being All-in-all.

Your honesty will protect you. Being absolutely authentically you, as God caused you to be, guarantees that you rest in His care, in the Truth of you and a Life that is just right, good, and safe. As you proceed forward, stay devoted to God and to yourself as His very expression. This gives you divine authority to enter into any place with the power and strength of God’s own purpose behind you.

God is guiding and guarding. He is also assuring that no lurking error from a human past can attack you and sabotage your natural progress. He is defending from behind—eliminating the false fears and beliefs of unworthiness, distress, limit, mistake, regret—and turning you forward, into the light of the new day, the dawning sun of your life today.

Healing is at hand. You are surrounded by Truth and you are safe in God’s own certainty, a Life full of His faithful, powerful Love.

pressingforward

“I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,  I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.” (Philippians 3: 13-14, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

Paul admitted he hadn’t yet achieved the ideal. He had not fully claimed in thought and embodied the saving message of the Messiah. But his certainty in these verses is still loud and clear and inspiring for us all.

Paul’s intention was to keep on seeking earnestly. He humbly admitted to being a student. He recognized that human sense may not be able to instantly grasp and bear witness to divine Truth, but Paul was not letting that stop his ongoing pursuit of it.

The Christly goal was before Paul’s thought and its promise animated his words and actions. He chose to look forward and not back at what had gone before—his mistakes and his ignorance. Paul knew the prize was his for the taking. Inspiration and revelation had made clear that God’s Word of eternal Life, goodness, and Love, as demonstrated by Jesus, was the reality and available for all to know completely and to live fully.

Let’s keep that prize before us. Let’s not judge what we did before or feel daunted by what we do not understood or have not yet proven. Let’s do what Paul has done and humbly listen to God’s Word to us in each new moment. Let’s receive gratefully His constant encouragement and let the goal and its guarantee burn within us, warming and guiding us every day, with joy!

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength.” (Mark 12: 30, Amplified Bible)

I love how this statement is so imperative! It isn’t a request and it isn’t partial, allowing exception or excuse. You shall love God thoroughly, deeply, wholly, with all that you are and all that you do.

Jesus knew that obedience to this divine demand would set us free and that it was absolutely within each one of us to accomplish. This Love that we express and feel toward God is, in fact, God’s own love powerfully within us. It is the Love God feels towards His own ideas, reflected naturally back towards its Source. For Love simply can’t help but love.

Claim this ideal. Be willing to be what you were made to be: a lover of good, of joy, of life, and of love itself. This is consciously and genuinely loving God with our very being, and with our every action. It is being true to our calling and to our nature. And it is our joy.

We were not made to live and love in a scattered or partial or part-time way. You and I were built to embody Love’s purpose and to shine forth with a powerful devotion to God and to His almighty and magnificent Truth of Life!

“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.” (Exodus 23: 20)

Behold! Open your eyes and see! There is divine guidance, a ready and steady angel, leading you in all that you do. God has given us this spiritual intuition, inspiration, and protection as we go forth expressing fresh aspects of His Life.

Each of us has a holy purpose, God’s moment-by-moment demand, to which our lives bear witness. God has prepared us for everything we have to do to accomplish this mission, and He always prepares our place, our success, ahead of our arrival. He has assured that we get where He would have us go, and that we have all that we need on the journey.

God has also lovingly given us His angel, His divine messenger, to guarantee that we don’t miss our holy land, our place of contentment, freedom, and peace. This angel, this divine guidance, is not obscure nor does it require us to have special visionary powers.

Our angel is the voice within us that knows us and loves us. It is that intelligent goodness that resides in our hearts and instructs us wisely and well. You always have your angels. God has given you the way home, written clearly within your own eager and trusting soul. Behold, follow, and rejoice!

Heart shaped tree during fall

“Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].” (I Corinthians 13: 7, Amplified Bible, Classic Edition)

The true sense of Love is pure, strong, and unconditional. This divine Love comes straight from God, so it knows no limits or fears or selfish intentions. It is the Love that is present with us at all times and that we are able to both receive and express.

When we feel like we can’t hold up or like things are too challenging for us, we can always turn to divine Love for our refuge. This spiritual affection keeps us safe and is invincible; whereas its opposite—a belief in anger, fear, hatred, resentment—makes us feel weak and unsteady, alone, and in doubt. Divine Love vanquishes anything that would attack its government. Love easily and naturally dispels grief and shame with its enduring goodness and tender mercy.

Love doesn’t give up. It doesn’t pass judgment. Love expects the best and therefore it gets it! This Love that is God is our true nature. It thrives in giving and sharing. It isn’t a personal, conditional compassion. It is the infinite embrace of God, knowing no exceptions and being All-in-all, to all, always.

This divine Love is not elusive nor is it found only in or for special selected persons. It is the very active presence and power that is readily at hand—fadeless, no matter what; enduring all human circumstances with certainty and power; and coming to each of us right where we are with God’s powerful, healing, saving, and renewing grace.

freedomimage

“Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.” (Galatians 5: 1, Message Bible)

The Christ-Truth has released us. The consciousness of our true birthright brought to light has opened the door to freedom—full and enduring!

We can accept this Truth of our own identity as children of God, at one with Life and Love, and live in accord with this beautiful reality. We can get out of the cage of limits and the tomb of fear and come out into the bright and new day, and stay among the liberated. Slavery to the senses, to opinion, to fear is not legitimate. No matter what lies and accusations by mortals or by matter may try to tempt you to get back into those shackles, that burdened state of being, there is truly no law of God that supports such false imprisonment.

Keep in thought and claim with vigor and persistence the law of Life that is reliably yours. Christ’s message of your own right to liberty is not conditional nor does it make exceptions. We can turn away from our rights and refuse to live our freedom, or we can remember who we are and the very nature of our Creator.

Divine Life has no limits. You are the very expression of that Life. Divine Love knows no burdened being and you are the very object and evidence of that Love.

Take your stand! The Almighty is behind you. You are free, always have been, and you can live that freedom now!

“Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.” (Joshua 1:9, Message Bible)

God’s command is not negotiable. His demand is imperative and certain and exactly right. It also comes with all the power and protection and resources needed to carry it out effectively and lovingly.

Every step you take, God—your God—is with you. As you walk forward in living your Truth, your inspiration, the life and work you have been led to do, you are doing it all with God’s grace, His intelligence, His protection, and His power. You are not carrying a purpose on your little shoulders. You are being sent forth as the emissary, the qualified representative of all of God’s qualities and His unchallenged intention, to express goodness, purpose, joy, in a way that is impactful, satisfying, and just right not only for you, but for all.

So claim that strength. Own that courage. Dismiss the temptation to be timid or to give in to discouragement. You walk with God. The call to good within you comes from God Almighty. He made you to bear witness to Him in a way that is uniquely you and, because of this, stunningly powerful. And God—divine Truth, Life, and Love—is with you every step of the way, today and every day.

harvest

“You have a saying, ‘Four more months and then the harvest.’ But I tell you, take a good look at the fields; the crops are now ripe and ready to be harvested!” (John 4: 35, Good News Translation)

Human observation with its sense testimony, doubts, and analysis of things, tends to be in waiting mode. We put conditions on accepting what is rightfully ours, living fully, with wholeness, well-being, and with the fruitfulness that multiplies so that we can share it with the world.

Are you pushing your joy, your health, your satisfaction into the future? Are you, perhaps, waiting on people or circumstances to line up in a perfect way before you begin reaping the good that is yours to experience? Or are you, maybe, hiding your light or your awareness of the healing Truth from others because you believe you don’t have enough understanding or ability to share? Are you too focused inward to realize the world is waiting to feast on the very crop that God has been cultivating in you?

Take a good look at your fields! They are ready now! God didn’t form an incomplete idea or ask us to wait for later or for the after-life, so-called, to enjoy and share His blessings. There’s nothing wrong with patience, but take a conscious pause to let your spiritual senses tell you what’s really going on. Am I waiting to share and express and claim goodness because I am looking to the senses and to human judgment for my information? Am I hiding my light out of fear I will fail?

Or, on the other hand, am I hearing the voice of God within me and seeing His vistas of blessings before me, proclaiming His readiness to be harvested, enjoyed, shared—not four months or four days in the future, but right here, right now!

“You know the Lord is God! He created us, and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep in his pasture.” (Psalms 100:3, Contemporary English Version)

You don’t belong to fate, chance, or circumstance. You don’t belong to another person or to your job or to your physicality or personality. You don’t belong to an age or a race or a classification. You belong to God!

And by belonging to God, you belong to all that is good and right and loving. You are the very child and beloved of Life itself, and the beneficiary of its true blessings. You are a child of limitlessness, of freedom, of fearlessness. You are the offspring of Soul’s infinite possibilities and are guided and cared for by infinite Wisdom and pure Love.

We are God’s people. We are His sheep. This doesn’t mean we are wandering aimlessly or that we simply follow like robots. It means that we are playful ideas in a pasture that is abundant in all that sufficiently feeds us, that keeps us lively and energetic, and which is resplendent in delights to occupy as well as teach us as we frolic.

And each of God’s sheep is equally precious to Him. He sees each one of us for who we truly are and why we are uniquely wonderful and necessary and lovable. We belong to God. He is the Lord—our faithful Leader, the keeper of our house and lands, and the tender guardian of our satisfying and satisfied lives.

In Your Light Pic 4

“The Eternal will guard you from all harm, he will preserve your life; he will protect you as you come and go, now and for evermore.” (Psalms 121: 7-8, Moffatt Translation)

You are safe here and now. You are safe over there and in your tomorrow. There isn’t a place you can go or a thing you can do without God’s presence and protection. This is a promise that doesn’t get withdrawn and is unconditional.

Why? Because God cannot fail to be All. He is always going to be where you are and He is always going to be powerful Love right there. He is the Eternal. God is ahead of you, behind you, and right with you now and always. He is Life and you reside safely in that Life and in His embracing, sustaining Love.

We don’t need human bravery to get by. We have divine courage to lean upon. We are guarded from harm in each and every day because we are precious to God and because our comings and goings—all that we are and all that we do—are the expression of His Life. They are God’s qualities made known, so nothing is done without His very nature and substance behind it and within it.

Now and forevermore, walk forward with peace. You are always with God, with good. You can leave a job, your home, a relationship, but you will never be separate from the Eternal Life which is perfect, preserving, protecting, powerful Love.

“There is but one creator and one creation. This creation consists of the unfolding of spiritual ideas and their identities, which are embraced in the infinite Mind and forever reflected.”  (Science and Health, page 502-503)

God’s creation is a boundless universe of brilliant ideas—individual and unique and eternal. Each one of us is a specific thought, purposefully conceived by God. Our lives express the creativity which is God’s eternal abundance. So, the divine Life unfolds new opportunities, adventures, joys, growth, every new day and each new year of our experience.

This unfoldment is not new creation. It is not subject to chance and circumstance or to the ingenuity or ignorance of men. God made all and made it good. He created the beautiful individual identity that you are and with it the beautiful life that you are worthy to live. This Life isn’t your creation. It is already done. Its completeness is not some fate you must live with, but a powerful opportunity to surrender to abundance, perfection, rightness, progress, peace, happiness.

For our Father-Mother already knows the outcome of things. He knows that what He made and saw to be perfect, forever remains this way. What this leaves us with is the great joy and necessity of seeing a bit more of that fullness each day, prepared especially for us.

Walk forward expectantly into each day as more of God’s ideal for your brilliant life is revealed—as fears and doubts and limits are lifted to show what has already been there: creation made by God and made to reflect His glory through you.

And, blessedly, each of God’s ideas is safe in its perfect identity. We are embraced, hugged close and loved, within the thought of God, within Love’s Life and Life’s Love.

happiness-success

“Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men,” (Colossians 3: 23, Amplified Bible)

We all seem to have so much to do! The tasks seem endless and either challenging or monotonous. It is easy to lose sight of the soul’s purpose and with that, to lose steam and power and inspiration. When we work from the outside and not from the inside, we often feel depleted or unsatisfied or unmotivated.

So listen to this message and remember that your Soul is not only where you find focus, it is where you discover or rediscover your joy. Whatever you do, put your heart into it. Remind yourself that your work is done for good, for Love, for Life, to demonstrate the qualities of God on earth. God gave us a purpose, and when we remind ourselves of that, it buoys us to do better and to do it with more willingness, enthusiasm, and success!

When we act to impress people with what we do or to show up another, we may get the job done, but we lose the true satisfaction that comes of utilizing our own special gifts in our own unique way and declaring God’s presence in the process.

When we appreciate and glorify what God made—you and your good work—we are celebrating and honoring Him. We are being true to ourselves as well. In doing so, we not only show forth God’s presence, we discover and feel our best as well.

Our Soul is full of light and inspiration, and when we look to it—to that God connection within us—we shine! And our work is naturally freer, more productive, and we and the world are blessed by it.

a-land-flowing-with-milk-and-honey-paradise

“As the children of Israel were guided triumphantly through the Red Sea, the dark ebbing and flowing tides human fear, — as they were led through the wilderness, walking wearily through the great desert of human hopes, and anticipating the promised joy, — so shall the spiritual idea guide all right desires in their passage from sense to Soul, from a material sense of existence to the spiritual, up to the glory prepared for them who love God.” (Science and Health, page 566)

The children of Israel sought the Promised Land. They were being called to freedom and they would not settle for anything less. This journey was not always easy and their fears and doubts would often try to get the better of them. But the holy purpose and promise never left them. Their desire for what was rightfully theirs led them home.

As we go forward in life, challenged at times by what seems like a desert of uncertainty and insufficiency and a wilderness of fear, our hope can stay strong in the promise as well. We are being guided to something greater and also more natural to us than a life of bondage to limits, worry, doubt, guilt, and personal responsibility.

Freedom is not only our goal; it is our very present state of being. It is the description of ourselves that God made and put permanently within us. It is the reason we are unwilling to settle for less than joy, wholeness, peace, prosperity. We were born with freedom in our hearts because freedom is the Truth, our Truth.

The spiritual idea—our true identity as God’s own child forever at one with Him—is our guiding star, our manna, and our consoling, uplifting Comforter. Our right desires are being guided to the better day, the better way, the real and brilliant and liberated life we deserve to realize.

Stay faithful to your purpose. Appreciate the journey for the gifts of wisdom and patience and mercy and creativity that it is bestowing on you along the way. The Promised Land is not a pipe dream. It is reality inviting you home.

Young woman

You are NEW today!

“…you’ve become a new person. This new person is continually renewed in knowledge to be like its Creator.” (Colossians 3: 10, God’s Word Translation)

The more we know of God, of Life, the more we are made new. We can’t fail to give up—as unreasonable and unnatural and unnecessary—that sense of ourselves that isn’t up to par. God’s standards are high and holy. They are beyond the lowered expectations we may have for ourselves and our lives.

You have become a new person. Each day, you have a renewed opportunity to get better acquainted with who you really are, today. This “you” is the idea that God created, not the one feeling old and weary with years and fears and tears. God made you like Himself. He made you of Spirit, Truth, and Love. He created each one of us to actively and accurately express His qualities and nature today.

Recognize the real you. Every day grants us the occasion to agree to be our best selves, our true selves, new to this moment and brand new in it. You can choose to live as God made you and sees you, and to give up the limited, limiting, depressing, declining, and entirely false. Today is your day to shine. You have become a new person, because God’s Life and Love is constantly revealing new ideas, new outlooks, new perspectives to you and through you. Be willing, ready, eager, and grateful to realize and experience this vibrant newness in yourself, in others, and in your life.

Daily Inspiration, June 16th

walkforward

“If Truth is overcoming error in your daily walk and conversation, you can finally say, ‘I have fought a good fight . . . I have kept the faith,’ because you are a better man.”  (Science and Health, page 21)

Look kindly on your life. Are you each day yearning to know goodness better? Are you striving to think and act with more love in your heart? Are you learning more and more that feeling anything less than kindness, mercy, forgiveness, appreciation, patience, is not only ungodlike, it is uncomfortable and unfruitful?

Trust your journey to a more honest you. You were built to be God’s own expression—the very evidence of Love and harmony here and now. This is your true state of being and any mistaken sense of this, realized, is a learning process that contributes to your ultimate success.

Challenges may come. We may feel we are not good enough, that we have done things we shouldn’t have, or that we haven’t sustained good thoughts in every day. Take heart. If the Truth of Life and Love are becoming more real in your thinking; if the recognition of what truly is good and right is becoming more apparent; if you are having more love for good and giving error and evil less control and focus, you are doing much.

The overcoming can feel daunting, but it is where we truly discover and appreciate the glory of being a better man and woman, the one who God made and who is much more natural to us. By this daily awareness, we come to know the heart within us and the life of Love that would truly set us free—moment by glorious moment, day by glorious day.

Holy-Grail-of-success-440x264

“Unselfish ambition, noble life-motives, and purity, —these constituents of thought, mingling, constitute individually and collectively true happiness, strength, and permanence.” (Science and Health, page 58)

Here noted are three beneficial qualities that we can realize and cultivate if we are to feel truly happy and at peace in ourselves and with the world. These are aspects of our thinking that together help us achieve success. They are entirely natural to you, ready to be utilized.

If you look to your heart, without judgment or analysis, you can discover that selfless purpose and the desire to pursue it. We often think of ambition as something that is a personal drive or push for attainment. But an ambition that is about good for all and not exclusively for ourselves, is an admirable and powerful thing. The dictionary defines ambition as “an earnest desire for some achievement…and the willingness to strive for its attainment.” That willingness, not willfulness, is a yielding to God’s purpose, listening, and obeying with energy and receptivity and expectation of success.

These selfless good works, in unison with life-motives that are noble and thoughts that are pure—free of limits and judgment and fear and the belief of sin and evil—bring us an honest and sustainable joy and peace. We have attuned ourselves to God’s real design for our lives. This harmonious blending of powerful yet loving qualities brings out satisfying results in our own lives and for those around us as well.

“Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:” (Matthew 25: 34)

That’s quite an invitation! Are you willing to accept it? Are you ready to enter into the kingdom that is your rightful inheritance?

I would hope so! Let me tell you about this kingdom, as I see it, but first let me tell you why it’s yours. It is yours because you are, as Jesus tells us here, the very blessed of the Father. You are God’s own child, the one He caused to be and loves with unending, boundless, focused, perfect Love. And this Truth of your nature and God’s affection not only gives you a right to the kingdom, it is the kingdom.

The foundation of the world was God’s original ideal, His creation made in His image to express His qualities. It was and is His design through which to manifest His goodness in infinite ways and to satisfy His own intention: to prove and to express Love.

So He caused you, a blessed child of God, beloved of the Father-Mother and heir to all that He is and all that He has.

There is no waiting for this inheritance to kick in. We don’t need to leave this seeming material realm in order to have access. God has blessed us now. We will never be His children any more than we already are, and we will always be securely residing within the kingdom of His saving, healing, comforting, tender, powerful Love.

“And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:” (Isaiah 58: 10)

Giving is empowering. Kindness is energizing. Compassion is uplifting.

Why is this? It is because when we act like we were built to act; when we draw upon and express our natural goodness, we are at one with the infinite Almighty, with that which is Truth and reality and righteousness. This authentic selfhood takes off the mask of fear and selfishness, and the light of our true selves shines for all to see.

You will know your own greatness through service. You will be known by raising others up. Be willing to respond to that love within you that seeks to help, to share, to give. And be assured that you always have an abundance of loving care to offer. Recognize that in small as well as larger ways you can serve others by expressing Life and Love, without putting conditions or judgments on the worth of your gift or on your own capacity.

You were created to radiate God’s presence, to be the very light to the darkness that might appear in your own life as well as the lives of others. Know that when you unite with God, boundless goodness, you will always have more than enough to give and with it a sense of true success and prosperity. And your riches shared will only establish and declare your own grandeur, that light that brightens others simply by its presence—the glow of Love in you.

“Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness.” (Psalms 37: 3, Amplified Bible)

Abide with God. Let goodness be your intention and at the same time your dwelling place. We can’t pursue kind and good actions with the love and power and honesty needed if we are not aware that we are safe ourselves. As we come to know our own security, we are able to live well and to give well also.

It is about trust. It takes our conscious yielding to God’s faithfulness—an awakened and grateful awareness that He is feeding us daily, hourly, with His ideas, His qualities, His power, His Love. God is trustworthy. He is changeless perfection and fills all space with His presence. This infinite substance that occupies the place where you are is divine Love. You are in a place of plenty!

Relinquish that personal control and look beyond what the senses want to present to you. Spirit transcends the limited testimony and reveals so much more. You are being nurtured right here and right now with all that is fulfilling and sustaining. God’s purpose of Love is unopposed. His resources are yours to lean on and utilize. His strength and His wisdom are guiding you and assuring that you accomplish what He intends.

You are made to be good, to do good, and to feel good. You dwell in God’s land and this is His imperative law of Life and Love!

unity

“Live together in peace, and our instruction to this end is to reprimand the unruly, encourage the timid, help the weak and be very patient with all men…good should be your objective always, among yourselves and in the world at large.” (I Thessalonians 5: 13-15, JB Phillips New Testament)

With good as our objective always, the patience and helpfulness and encouragement of others will come naturally. As we accept a higher purpose for ourselves, we are led to do what is loving, as well as right toward one another. This peace within us expands to include our family, friends, community, and the world.

Cultivate this goodness in you. You were not made to be selfish or judgmental. You were not meant to exclude and to be impatient or apathetic. You were made to radiate God Himself—goodness that is powerful and pleasing and achieves His intention of peace and harmony and unity.

Listen to your heart and respond with eagerness. Every time we answer the call of God, of goodness and kindness and helpfulness, we are coming into line with His design for us. We are recognizing our true selves and yielding up the selfish and unsatisfying and separate and false view of ourselves.

Look around you. Children of God abound. Each is worthy and wonderful. You are one of these children as well. Act like it. This acceptance of your true heritage gives you access to the riches of contentment and joy within and impacts the world as well with the natural and vital and healing power of God’s goodness expressed!

“The power of God brings deliverance to the captive. No power can withstand divine Love.” (Science and Health, page 224)

We may feel at times that we are captive to and captivated by what the senses are telling us or to limiting circumstances or personal relationships that seem challenging. We may feel stuck and without recourse or in need of a miracle to set us free.

Prepare for a rescue! It is our constant preoccupation with trouble and with fear that paralyzes us and blinds us to our solution. If we invest power in matter and ego, not to mention agree to anger and self-justification and doubt, we are turning from the power which is readily available to lead us naturally to peace and freedom.

This power is divine Love. This is our savior. Divine Love is God’s own infinite strength and tenderness. It is that which doesn’t need to fight for victory, but by its own all-encompassing goodness, kindness, leaves nothing left to fight.

The marginal heading for this quote reads: “mental emancipation.” As Love is accepted in thought; as we agree to receive without reservation its absolving, resolving grace, the doors to freedom are opened to us. Our uplifted attitude gives us new and clear vision. We can see things as they really are and begin to feel and act like the free and beloved ones of God Who is Almighty—always powerful, always winning, always with us and for us and always ready to deliver us with invincible Love.

“Divine Love blesses its own ideas, and causes them to multiply, — to manifest His power.” (Science and Health, page 517)

You are an idea of divine Love. Likewise, the inspirations and endeavors that you are led to achieve, have their source in divine Love. God cherishes each of us and has caused us with His purpose in Mind. We were made to manifest His goodness, light, Life, and power.

And so we were not made to fail or to lose or to live meagerly or shamefully. God made us with the imperative intention that we multiply—that the abundant Love that He showered upon us because He delighted in conceiving us, continues to increase in glory and in expression.

We may believe ourselves to be small and with little promise. We may look at ourselves in a way that is demeaning or feel little hope toward anything truly spectacular for ourselves. But, this is belief. It is not Truth. And a belief can be changed. A perspective can be uplifted to see what is really going on, and so to give up that which has been merely accepted and tolerated as the best we can do.

Divine Love has blessed you with the ability to multiply—to demonstrate powerfully all the qualities of peace and joy and capacity for success that He so lovingly bestowed on you. Accept the blessing. Don’t argue against it. Receive this Truth and own it as the living fact for you. Let this divine promise cause you and your purpose to be revealed as right and as fruitful. Do it today!

“Be beautiful in your heart by being gentle and quiet. This kind of beauty will last, and God considers it very special.” (I Peter 3: 4, Contemporary English Version)

Let’s get our true beauty rest. Let’s take that serene pause to let our hearts be right with God. This is a beautiful thing and one that allows our true loveliness to shine fully and naturally and unfailingly.

The gentle and quiet heart is the humble one. It is that inner being that is not caught up in personal control, worry, and ego. It is that selfhood that is not focused on impressing people and in proving ourselves worthy, but instead occupied with dwelling on God, good, Love and letting that true beautifying substance rest us and rejuvenate us.

We were each given a beautiful heart, one that is full of love and ready to share it. We are at our most gorgeous when we claim this Love and know its Source. God’s Love is Life itself, and our consciousness of this makes our faces shine and our lives impactful and significant and satisfying.

True beauty is not in outward display or in the judgment of it. Nor is it in excessive talk without genuine tenderness and respect and honesty behind it.

Be gentle and quiet. It is the best way to hear God’s guiding and assuring Word and to feel within us the beauty that can’t be lost or hidden and that is our true nature to know and to express.

handinhand

“I am the Lord your God. I am holding your hand, so don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” (Isaiah 41: 13, Contemporary English Version)

Relax. Give up that personal sense of control. Let go of the fears and doubts that seem so real and personal and reasonable. None of those things are needed. What is needed is that grateful pause to realize we are not alone.

Our hand is in God’s hand. He is mighty and wise and all-good. He made us and loves us. God knows us as we truly are. He sees His little child and He sees this one’s worthiness to be guided and guarded and led to success and freedom. God’s purpose is to be God—to be the one power, presence, control, and the wise Mind that governs all harmoniously, without exception.

Don’t refuse God’s help. It is not a sign of weakness to accept this gift. It is a sign of intelligence. Doesn’t it make sense to take the hand of one to Whom all threats are nothing, Who is without fear, limit, or mistake? Isn’t letting go of personal control for divine control more rational and wise? God knows and sees all. He is the Father and we are the child. Children obey and are taught, kept safe, and by doing so are able to express what a perfect Father-Mother most wants to see in His child—freedom, happiness, confidence, life expressed with great expectations and with enthusiasm.

God is holding your hand, little one. Don’t be afraid. Accept the ready and effective help. It comes straight from the heart of infinite and unfailing Love.

Secrets-of-the-Sea

“The understanding of his spiritual individuality makes man more real, more formidable in truth, and enables him to conquer sin, disease, and death.”  (Science and Health, page 317)

Physical strength and an assertive personality are not the keys to true success and freedom in life. A focus on ourselves and others as possessing certain human traits, for good or for ill, inhibits our achieving the real victory over limits and challenges in life.

It is our spiritual individuality that is our power. As we come into an awareness of who we are, as God made us to be—His image and His delight—we gain a true strength and capacity for achievement and contentment. It is only by being genuine, true to ourselves as we were made to be, that we begin from a premise that is honest, and therefore right and winning.

Your spiritual individuality is not some elusive idea that is difficult to understand and accept. It is truly everything that you already most authentically are. It is that lovely and lovable ideal that feels natural and right and freeing.

In honoring this simple selfhood, this sweet child of God, we find our true power. We then leave behind the limited ego and the belief in material body and material circumstances. We are allowed to shine and to flourish as the reflection of God’s own infinite power, that invincible strength and unerring wisdom that conquers fear and limits and sets us free to really live grandly as we were made to do.

the-lord-looketh-on-the-heart

“…the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” (I Samuel 16: 7)

God is all-seeing. He has insight, foresight, and perfect perception. God’s Mind is aware of all that is real and true and right. His judgment is clear and not up for debate. What God sees and knows is what is.

The human tendency is to assess people by their outward appearance. We look at people and things and come to conclusions based on what we see with our eyes. We make assumptions based on the outward behavior or demeanor. We often judge others—and even more harshly ourselves—based on what one may have said or done as well as by the people they associate with. We might evaluate people based on distinctions of age, gender, race, and even the choices one makes.

None of these judgments are Truth, because they don’t see into the “heart.” God knows who we are at the core. He knows what He made and He is clear on our true purpose as His expression and as His beloved. God sees All. He sees reality for He made that reality. And He sees you and me as we truly are, at the very heart of ourselves—innocent, eager, beautiful, honorable, honest, noble, wise, joyful, and full of the very Life that is pure and powerful Love.

“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so that there will be food enough in my Temple; if you do, I will open up the windows of heaven for you and pour out a blessing so great you won’t have room enough to take it in! Try it! Let me prove it to you!” (Malachi 3: 10, Living Bible)

Gather up your gratitude. Bring that conscious awareness of God and His goodness into His temple, His sacred place of worship, protection, and divine affection.

When we fill our storehouse, our thoughts and hearts, with the true consciousness of God’s presence and authority, we are dwelling in a state of fullness. If we start from a premise of emptiness and believe we have nothing as well as nothing good to offer, we are blind to the blessings at hand; we are withholding our praise by failing to be obedient to God’s presence and instead worshipping, through our fear and focus, a belief in His absence.

Abundance is God’s nature, so it is yours as well. You are abundant in Love right now, and so you can express that Love toward its very Source. You can love this divine Love for giving you Life, and stand in expectation to be awed by the rich blessings God is fully prepared to shower upon your worthy and grateful head!

peacenotconfusion

“…God is not the author of confusion, but of peace…” (I Corinthians 14: 33)

Peace is God’s presence and purpose. His creation was made to harmonize, to manifest His goodness, perfection, and Love. God made us to know and express this peace that is His own nature, the very quality of His own eternal ever-presence.

Confusion has no divine authority. God is not the author of chaos, lack of understanding, or conflict. The belief that the perfect Mind would create or tolerate confusion is false and without power. He does not require us to agonize over life and its questions or to feel uncertain in His direction. God is always leading us to peace, through peace-filled ideas.

Let’s not give confusion a divine source. Let’s not accept that uncertainty and fear and ignorance are God’s intention for us or that we must suffer with human doubts in order to find our way. God’s voice is full of peace. This is how we know Him and this is how we truly know ourselves.

You are not the child of confusion. You are the child of peace and you can hear God’s word clearly in the stillness of His tender words; you can feel this true peace in the awareness of His love, His control, His own purpose—one which can’t be lost or missed.

Rest in the serene sense of God’s kindness and wisdom. We don’t have to wrestle with things we don’t understand in order to find our way. God’s guidance is clear and certain and resonates naturally within us. Peace is the reality of your life, and it is present here and now for you to know and feel and to share with the world as well.

dancingbeach

“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.” (Psalms 30: 11-12)

We may find at times that we are mourning a loss or grieving over our lives and what we feel may be missing in them today. It may seem difficult to lay off that sackcloth, that dark and depressed state of thought and the apathy and discouragement that would want to keep us from joy and energy and freedom.

But God can do it. He is able to turn our sadness into more than mere resignation or moderate movement. God is able to call us forward into dancing. He can make us recognize that our time is now; that all that would have put us into that closed off cocoon of self-doubt, fear, and disappointment, is ready to be left behind by the butterfly of renewal and color and life that we are truly made to be.

We may not always be able to lift ourselves up to be happy and full of enthusiasm. But our divine Life is always with us and in us at these times. God is at the ready for us to release ourselves to that call to joy that burns faintly but steadily within us, waiting to be reignited. God absolutely requires that we express Him; that we praise Him through our grand and glorious lives. He can and will show us how to sing from our hearts.

The trials may seem like the death of us, but they are simply a rebirth in the making. They are times to give up the human limits and control for the divine intention; to let God remake us not only with a new sense of life and its possibilities, but with a recognition, through those very trials, of why we are truly blessed and why our Life and God’s Love are worthy of our song of grateful joy!

yearning____by_theresahelmer-d631prs

“…we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do.  The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others.” (I Corinthians 12: 6-7, Contemporary English Version)

Our gifts are unique and uniquely wonderful! We all have a special way about us, singular qualities and specific callings for our lives. Every single one of us is needed, special, and powerful.

We should never compare our talents or our daily work in life. No one has less to give than another and not one of us is meant to fill a niche that isn’t truly ours to fill. God’s design is neither limited nor flawed. When He created infinite Life He made it to harmonize. Everything fits and we are each part of that everything, a required element of His creative plan for Life and all in the name of Love.

Don’t be timid about your specialness. You are powerful and splendid. You bring rich benefits to others through your light. And it is not egotism to accept what God saw fit to create, and to realize that all that we do—each special way we serve others—is God working in us, not some mere human endeavor at goodness.

We glorify God as we appreciate our gifts, treasure that they are God’s qualities animated through us. Give God the glory gladly and gratefully and utilize His infinite capacity. Be you and do it freely, with success and finesse!

“…take a fresh grip on life and brace your trembling limbs. Don’t wander away from the path but forge steadily onward. On the right path the limping foot recovers strength and does not collapse.” (Hebrews 12: 12-13, JB Phillips New Testament)

It seems at times that mortal life wants to hobble us, leave us dragging along, with little enthusiasm and feeling challenged by circumstances, discomfort, loss, and limit. It may seem tempting to give up the fight and to justify this choice. It may feel easy and natural to take on the mantle of victim and wear it as if it is our own skin.

Take a pause. Get a fresh grip on life and steady yourself for forward movement. Mortal life may seem to leave us at a standstill, but the divine Life is always impelling us forward, onward, and out of the very troubles we feel are holding us back. Today is a new day. The path is clear before us. It is that which is full of Life and Love. It is protected by God’s intention and its way is surrounded by beauty, inspiration, ideas that buoy us forward and strengthen our resolve.

The right path is a healing path. It is God’s purpose unfurled before you and you deserve to walk in it, to claim the joys of the journey itself, the discovery of our true self—one who is worthy of the good life that God has made for you. Trust Him. Trust yourself. Trust Life to lead you in experiencing that which is upright, good, and full of the satisfied confidence that comes of being—and accepting—the true and beautiful you.

Daily Inspiration, April 12th

storm light

“Now may God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace as you believe, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15: 13, International Standard Version)

Joy and peace are infinite and forever available to feel and to know. This sense of well-being and harmony are a hope we inherently have. It is God, the very Source of all goodness and Life and Truth, Who plants this hope within us.

This seed of expectation may seem small, but it comes with the full power of God and His holy purpose behind it. We were made to know Him and express His nature. We were designed with this divine intention in our souls and with it the ability to recognize the Truth of this active law of Life.

Sometimes when things seem difficult in our human experience, we are inclined to discount this hope. We deny that it is legitimate or push it back as too good to be true, to be Truth.

And yet it still remains there, ready for our acknowledgement. For that hope of good, peace, and joy, is God speaking to us, calling us to believe. And when we do, we find that that small drop of conscious awareness of God can’t help but overflow, filling us up with Truth and Love, and washing away the doubts and fears. This hope, this connection with God that material sense would hide, is our true guide and forever friend. It leads us home and impels us to bring healing hope, light, joy, and peace to others as well.

Daily Inspiration, April 7th

yearning

“When mortal man blends his thoughts of existence with the spiritual and works only as God works, he will no longer grope in the dark and cling to earth because he has not tasted heaven.” (Science and Health, page 263)

We all seem subject to mortal thoughts. There are times when we can’t help but believe the limits of material life and the reports from the senses to be legitimate and our fate. We can even become comfortable with our discomfort merely because it is familiar and it has come to feel like truth to us.

But this mortal viewpoint is ready for an awakening. Even our fears and doubts can’t keep God’s ideas from entering into our consciousness. These angels of Truth come to set us free from the bondage of believing we are not free! When we hear these voices within us calling us to something greater and more beautiful than finite mortal existence, we can heed them. We can listen and learn and be ready to open our eyes to the better way, a brighter day.

So, let us allow our sweet humanity to work for us. This yearning spirit within us is our right desire to get a taste of heaven. It is that within us that—while still earth-bound and uncertain and perhaps disbelieving—somehow recognizes that there is a hope for something greater. Listen to that voice and let its sincere desire blend with those higher truths, straight from God, where answers to all those questions are clear and satisfying.

We can taste heaven here and now. We can begin to allow those angel thoughts that remind us of our true perfection and divine origin, to uplift us to a higher view, a new outlook, and a heavenly walk right here on our beautiful earth.

“…remember Jesus’ words, ‘The kingdom of God is within you.’ This spiritual consciousness is therefore a present possibility.” (Science and Health, page 573-574)

Heaven is not far off and out of reach. The kingdom of harmony, where God’s goodness always reigns supreme, is not some remote destination that we can only hope for. It is available and active and the nearest thing to us at all times.

Jesus, who was always truthful and proved it by demonstration, has given us this promise and guarantee: The kingdom of God is within you. What did he mean by that? Did he place a litany of conditions upon this fact? Did he say it to tempt us, like the very devil he defeated in the wilderness?

No! Jesus was giving us the good news, the very gospel he came preaching and teaching and proving. This spiritual consciousness, the awareness of heaven here and now, is ours to know. It is the reality at the very heart of us, God’s presence and Love and Life within us. What might keep this truth of heaven hidden from us is only that false belief that we can’t have it, don’t deserve it, or that it is separate from us, a distant hope that has nothing to do with us right now.

Awaken to the Truth of Life within you. The kingdom of heaven is that always-available consciousness of God’s presence. It is the spiritual reality of harmony that may seem interrupted by the material world, but in Truth is the very nature of the universe right here and right now. This kingdom dwells in Love, in the heart of you that is that little child, full of expectation, and having a willingness to believe that all good things are possible today.

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began…” (II Timothy 1: 9)

Our purpose is not something we make nor is it something we can mess up. God has called each one of us, ushered us into glorious being, to show forth the very thing that Christ Jesus came demonstrating—our oneness with God and all that He is.

God is Love. So we were created in order to be the very evidence of that Love, to fulfill this holy intention in a way that only we can. We can’t miss our calling, because it is the very nature of who we are; it is the way in which God’s multitude of beautiful qualities are blending in us and living to be shared. We have always been in God’s thought, a necessary and wonderful idea that He conceived and consciously, constantly expresses and loves. This glorious selfhood was with God—in that Truth preached by Christ—before the world began, before material sense would attempt to limit us, separate us, belittle us.

God has saved us. He has preserved us just as we are for all time because we are important to His own purpose and grace. His Love requires we know and live that holy calling to do good, to be good, and to be true to ourselves in doing so. We are not called and equipped to be amazing because of anything we did or didn’t do. It is because of what God has already done in loving you into being, into your purposeful, unique, and powerful life.

“Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.” (Psalms 34: 14)

Peace. Isn’t it really at the heart of what we all desire? We yearn for a sense of well-being, completeness, harmony, steadiness, satisfaction. We seek freedom from fear and anxiety, and a sense of feeling comfortable, confident, and in control no matter what.

Peace is surely seen in outward ideas—a calm river, a sleeping kitten, a church or temple quiet and sacred. But true peace is not outside of us, but within. It is a deep awareness of safety, of trust, of goodness. It is an inward acceptance of this moment and an expectation of grace in the next. It is, in truth, an awareness of God.

As we depart from believing in and practicing evil—that which is not aligned with God and His goodness—we can begin to realize that peaceful presence within. When we do good; when we express love and compassion toward others and towards ourselves when needed, we discover our true selves. We come into a real balance in our being. We settle into who we really are, and this is peace. It is a conscious oneness with our Source and with His intention when He created us.

Pursue peace. Actively choose to find and practice the living Truth of you. Let that gleaming gem that you are shine. Wipe off the grit of self-defensiveness, fear, and regret. Stop hiding that jewel in a box of personal limits, self-imposed or tacitly agreed to because of society’s seeming strong arm.

Seek peace. Accept its presence and power. It is closer than you think. It is the very nature of you, and so it is always right where you are.

Sunflower-Field

“God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis.” (Science and Health, page 258)

We are not small and limited, with only so much life and so many possibilities. We are God’s manner of expressing His own infinitude. We are each the very way in which God shows forth just how vast and inexhaustible His qualities are and how far-reaching is His grand purpose.

We may accept earthly limits about ourselves and our potential. We may see things from a perspective of finiteness, personal sense, and fear. But this viewpoint doesn’t change God’s facts about you, the Truth of His holy demand that you express Him faithfully and fully. God is expansive, eternal, and always new and vibrant and whole. If we acknowledge this Truth, we realize we certainly can’t be what God Himself has not created. We must be like Him, the very evidence of His ever-presence and infinitude.

You are an idea of God, a seed containing every right and perfect quality of His, continually blossoming in the awareness of this fact of your being. Let Life nurture you forward, upward, outward, rather than accepting a premise of limitation that would falsely—yet often aggressively—suggest that our lives must taper off, or that we have only so many options for feeling happy, productive, and blessed.

Hogwash! God is doing the grand expressing as each of us. Eternal Life and infinite Love has no intention of being confined or old or wasted. So He has you—yes you!—to reveal day by day more and more of His goodness, intelligence, inspiration, activity, beauty, joy, love, freedom, and fun!

Guide through Rough Waters

“When you cross deep rivers, I will be with you, and you won’t drown. When you walk through fire, you won’t be burned or scorched by the flames. I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, the God who saves you.” (Isaiah 43: 2-3, Contemporary English Version)

Life is full of challenges. The world is continually parading before us causes for fear and danger and discouragement. We can’t escape the barrage completely. But we can stay safe and even serene in the midst of what appears as chaos. We have an invincible protection and a ready rescue.

God is our salvation. Infinite good, our own loving Creator, is also our Keeper. He has made us to express Him fully; and so His Love is forever with us and in us to assure that we are always the sustained image of Himself—whole, right, full of life and joy, and having the inherent ability to recognize and appreciate this eternal fact of ourselves.

Those deep rivers that may appear as debt, depression, or physical concerns for oneself or one’s home or family, can’t overwhelm us. We may have to navigate them, but we will never drown; in fact, we will likely find new strength that we didn’t know we had, and wisdom going forward.

We might find ourselves faced with the fires of anger or insult or misunderstanding from others, or an agitated sense within, but those flames will never touch your true being. You remain intact because God saves you—He consistently and without interruption keeps you safe, enduring; the true you remaining in all its innocence, purity, and goodness.

Don’t be afraid when mortal life seems ready to engulf you. God is right where you are. He is always ready to lovingly, tenderly, powerfully lead you home to safety, harmony, and peace.

proverbs_14_31

“Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.” (Proverbs 14: 31, New International Version)

Oppression comes in many forms. Poverty, as well, includes more than someone having less money to sustain their existence.

If we are to honor our Maker, God, divine Love itself, being unkind to or shaming or even being blind to one who appears to have less than us, is unacceptable. Behavior that diminishes another or judges him, shows contempt for our Creator, the One Who saw fit to create each one of us and to make us in His own image and likeness—worthy, lovable, good. We can see that any time we sneer at, denigrate, or even poke fun at one who seems in need, we are scorning God, divine Love, our very own Maker and Father-Mother.

Kindness is power and it is substance. When we show kindness toward one in need— whether it be a need for material provision or a need for enlightenment, renewal, joy, understanding—we are honoring God by utilizing His divine Love in ways that humanity can feel and know. This kindness and compassion blesses with God’s own qualities that one who seems in need, and the one expressing that loving care is blessed as well.

We all have times in our lives where we feel a lack. In Truth, our needs are always and already met by God. We are always worthy of knowing and feeling this Truth. The kindness of others and our mercy towards ourselves, begins to fill that need with the one most powerful and necessary thing—Love.

empty-tomb1

“The lonely precincts of the tomb gave Jesus a refuge from his foes, a place in which to solve the great problem of being.” (Science and Health, page 44)

Jesus sure knew how to make the best of any situation! His three days in the tomb before his triumphant proof of ever-lasting life to the world, was a sacred time for him and a grand blessing for us all.

We can’t know exactly what Jesus was doing for those three days. But his resurrection after that time makes it clear something wonderful, healing, world-changing was going on. The tomb was not a prison, a place of death and mourning and giving up. It was a “refuge” from the world and the accusing, doubting, hatred and envy that was looming outside that sepulcher.

Just as Jesus took this crucial time as one in which to draw closer to God and His Love and the truth of His everlasting Life, so we can make use of those challenging times as moments for consecrated prayer, communion with God, and a preparation for glorious resurrection. Through our listening and trusting patience, we then emerge into new life at just the right time and right way for us, and to bless others as well.

Jesus proved that life was not subject to the world’s view of it. We have his brilliant example to follow as we, too, come to realize that even when life feels like a hopeless and lonely tomb, right there are we attended by Life’s most brilliant angels, ready to awaken us to new promises and to roll away the stone to show us our own life as we’ve never seen it before!

don'tworry

“Can any of you add a single hour to the length of your life by worrying?” (Matthew 6: 27, International Standard Version)

Think about it. Is there anything about worrying that is productive, progressive, healing? Does fretful preoccupation ever yield anything fruitful? Does worry have any power at all except to attempt to muddle thought, stymie action, and rob us of our rightful joy and freedom in this moment? We never gain a single hour by worrying, but we surely lose a good one in this pointless activity!

So, let’s learn the difference between being rightly alert to concerns that need weeding out, healing, and conquering; as opposed to giving undue focus and weight to challenges through unnecessary fretting and ruminating. We can immediately begin to calm the fearful thought with the conscious awareness that with God—infinite wisdom and goodness—there is always and already an answer, a resolution, our cares met. This release of the need to personally fix and change things and instead to know that God’s answer of peace is at hand, clears the mist and allows for right ideas that are clear and wise and healing.

When you catch yourself in the mode of worrying about things large or small, remind yourself what a waste of time this is. Challenge that fretfulness with the recognition that your time could be spent in much better ways. Say a grateful good-bye to those worries and their seeming cause through your conscious release to Life, and to the Truth of God’s faithful and loving care for you and for all!

day-22gifts-God-gives

“Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well.” (I Peter 4: 10, Contemporary English Version)

We are all uniquely endowed with talents. We all have within us very special qualities which we so much need to express in our very singular way. We can cherish those gifts we are already aware of and at the same time continue to be open to other treasures God is revealing to us.

Don’t limit yourself or agree to be less vital, productive, full of light and goodness, than God knows that you are and guaranteed that you be. He designed you as one of a kind—like no one else and with a very specific manner of expressing His Soul through your life. There is nothing missing or incomplete in any one of us. We are all ideas jam-packed with all the right characteristics, blended together in way that is powerful and pleasing.

Know just how blessed you are. Bask in Love, letting that light shine on you to reveal your glorious gifts—your creativity, your intelligence, the special way which you love, the keen care you have for detail, your strength and flexibility, your natural grace in movement and in the way in which you live your life. Your gifts are plentiful and beautiful and unique and needed and no one can express them like you do. No one.

Treat your gifts with loving care. Use them well. Don’t hoard your gifts or second-guess them. Nurture them, let them blossom in the way that feels right and satisfying, and spread that inherent goodness in a way that is rich with generosity.
