Dec. 03, 2016 – THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT OF TROUBLE

THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT OF TROUBLE

dec-3-2015Jesus proved that God in man is unlimited.  I accept this and now proceed to demonstrate it.  My troubles are no longer stumbling blocks.  I accept them as challenges to prove that right thinking is the creative power of life.  As I dismiss them, the solutions appear.  Temporarily they have blinded me, but now I see through the eyes of Spirit, and the way out is clear.  As I discipline my thoughts to God’s Ideas, I am divinely led to right solutions.  No matter how great my problems may be, I dismiss them as unreal.

Dec. 02, 2016 – ALL POWER IS MINE TO USE AND TO ENJOY

ALL POWER IS MINE TO USE AND TO ENJOY   

dec-2-2015God known is power revealed.  The unlimited power of the Creative Mind is mine to use for the increase of blessings in my world.  Such use will harm no one, and will make me a finer person, a greater instrument of the Almighty.  By my right use of the One Power I shall become what I ought to be.  I know that only through my Spirit can this power be used in right ways.  I am weary of the destruction and turmoil in my life.  I now affirm that I use the power of God for right and intelligent purposes.  I say farewell to all mistakes.

Dec. 01, 3016 – BEFORE ME IS A CLEAR ROAD, AND I PROCEED

BEFORE ME IS A CLEAR ROAD, AND I PROCEED   

dec-1-2015The forward look is the Godward look. My heaven will never be unless I make it out of the materials of my own thinking.  Today I set my sights on Him who fashioned me in His image and after His likeness.  I stand at the door of the abundant life and I knock.  All that I seek opens to me and beckons me to Life’s fullness. Continue reading “Dec. 01, 3016 – BEFORE ME IS A CLEAR ROAD, AND I PROCEED”

Nov. 30, 2016 – THERE IS AN INSPIRATION WITHIN ME THAT GUIDES ME ARIGHT

THERE IS AN INSPIRATION WITHIN ME THAT GUIDES ME ARIGHT

nov-30-2015The disciple John tells us that “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”  Wonderful indeed is this conception of the union of all life, which Jesus proclaimed in the ecstasy of his illumination, “I and the Father are one.”  All cause and all effect proceed from the invisible Spirit.  Man is one with this Spirit and cannot be separated from It.  His word has power because his word is the action of God through his thought. Continue reading “Nov. 30, 2016 – THERE IS AN INSPIRATION WITHIN ME THAT GUIDES ME ARIGHT”

Nov. 29, 2016 – I HAVE DOMINION

I HAVE DOMINION   

nov-29-2015I know that there is a God-Power at the center of every man’s being, a Power that knows neither lack, limitation nor fear, sickness, disquiet nor imperfection. But out of my personal experience come the negative suggestions which arise from the race consciousness.  If I permit them to, they act as a mesmeric or hypnotic power over my imagination.  They bring up arguments from every man’s experience, declaring that impoverishment and pain must necessarily accompany every man in his experience through life. Continue reading “Nov. 29, 2016 – I HAVE DOMINION”

Nov. 28, 2016 – HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART AND I DELIGHT TO DO HIS WILL

HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART AND I DELIGHT TO DO HIS WILL   

nov-28-2015I know that the Perfect Life of the Spirit is my life, and I now permit It to radiate through my world of thought and action – to express in my physical form.  As I relax my body, consciously and definitely – which I am able to do by mentally relaxing and dropping all strain – I feel flowing through me a vital energy, a dynamic force, a great surge of living power.  I feel immersed in and saturated by a vital Essence of Perfection, which brings me into tune with life. Continue reading “Nov. 28, 2016 – HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART AND I DELIGHT TO DO HIS WILL”

Nov. 27, 2016 – I WILL FEAR NO EVIL

I WILL FEAR NO EVIL   

nov-27-2015Today my heart is without fear, for I have implicit confidence in the good, the enduring and the true. Fear is the only thing of which to be afraid.  It is not the host encamped against us, nor the confusion around us, that we need to fear; it is the lack of confidence in the good alone which should concern us. Through inner spiritual vision, we know that evil is transitory, but good is permanent.  We know that right finally dissolves everything opposed to it.  The power of Spirit is supreme over every antagonist.  Therefore, we should cherish no fear, and when we neither fear nor hate, we come to understand the unity of life. Continue reading “Nov. 27, 2016 – I WILL FEAR NO EVIL”

Nov. 26, 2016 – LIFE SINGS THROUGH ME IN RADIANT ECSTASY

LIFE SINGS THROUGH ME IN RADIANT ECSTASY

nov-25-2015Now and always I recognize that I live, move and have my being in God.  I am part of Universal Mind.  I am one with Universal Substance.  All the qualities and all the wealth of good and desirable things that exist in Universal mind are mine now.  I perceive, accept and experience them.  I know that that Presence which manifests in my heart and mind is God expressing Himself within me.  As I feel this Presence more and more I hear the Song of Joy deep within. Continue reading “Nov. 26, 2016 – LIFE SINGS THROUGH ME IN RADIANT ECSTASY”

Nov. 25, 2016 – THE LIFE OF THE FATHER IS MY LIFE

THE LIFE OF THE FATHER IS MY LIFE 

nov-24-2015God can not withhold Himself from me.  That which is He has given fully unto me to enjoy. The life of God is perfect, it is eternal, it is the essence of all things.  That life is God’s gift to me.  Therefore, this fullness is within me, ready to manifest through me as I partake of it.  Since I am self-choosing, even though Divinely endowed, I partake of my Divinity only as I let it through; I am always in the midst of plenty everywhere.  I know that I live in a changeless Reality. Continue reading “Nov. 25, 2016 – THE LIFE OF THE FATHER IS MY LIFE”

Nov. 24, 2016 – I ACCEPT MY OWN SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL PERFECTION

I ACCEPT MY OWN SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL PERFECTION   

nov-26-2015My body is the temple of the Living God.  It is Spiritual Substance.  I have perfect confidence in my heart that God’s lifegiving Spirit is my life. Since God is my life and God is eternal, my life is eternal.  Therefore I cannot be separated from God, from Good, from Perfection.  If I would renew body, mind and affairs, I must first cause my imagination to rise above them. The supreme Ruler, omnipresent, therefore existing at the very center of my thought, the Christ within me, really has the power to make all things new.
