I AM WARMED BY THE LOVE OF GOD
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God…
I John 3:1
It has been truly said that love is the loadstone of life, the treasure of earth and the highest gift of heaven. We all wish to feel that we are kept in the arms of love, protected by its shelter and warmed by its feeling. But someone might ask, “How do we really know that ‘the universe rests on the shoulders of love?’” The answer is more simple that it might appear.

I SEE WITH THE EYES OF GOD
…one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
The ancients said that there is an “all-seeing eye” and that if we could cause our physical eyes to see with its vision we should be looking at things as they really are. But is it not true that too often we see with a blurred vision because we are so confused mentally? The all-seeing eye of God, by its very nature, being one and only, must forever see things as they really are. Continue reading “Mar. 17, 2017 – I SEE WITH THE EYES OF GOD”
I AM ENDOWED WITH THE PERFECTION OF GOD
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5: 48
When Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven (within you) is perfect,” he was telling us that there is a Perfection at the center of all things, which, recognized, will spring into being. We must learn to identify ourselves with this Perfection, to so accept it that it is real to us, and to so live that it may be expressed through us. Continue reading “Mar. 16, 2017 – I AM ENDOWED WITH THE PERFECTION OF GOD”
I AM SUPPLIED FROM THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
We all have need of many things. We cannot believe that the Divine Spirit wishes to withhold any good from us. It is the nature of God to give, and it is our nature to receive. Back of every idea of supply, every need in our human lives, there is something which forever more gives of itself and takes the form of our experiences when we permit it to. Continue reading “Mar. 15, 2017 – I AM SUPPLIED FROM THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD”
I ENJOY THE COMPANIONSHIP OF GOD
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.
Communion with the Spirit is one of the greatest privileges of life. By communion with God we do not mean telling the Infinite what to do or how to do it, for that is talking at God rather than communing with Him. By communion we mean silently entering into Divine harmony and beauty until we feel that harmony and beauty in our own souls, in our own minds. Continue reading “Mar. 14, 2017 – MARCH 14 I ENJOY THE COMPANIONSHIP OF GOD”
I JUDGE, AND AM JUDGED, WITH THE JUSTICE OF GOD
… my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jesus, the greatest of all the illumined, said, “Judge not that ye be not judged,” by which he meant that we cannot judge others harshly without receiving back into our own consciousness and experience the very things we claim for others. While Jesus was the most compassionate of all men, he was also the most just, for he knew that our lives are governed by an exact and immutable law of cause and effect. Continue reading “Mar. 13, 2017 – I JUDGE, AND AM JUDGED, WITH THE JUSTICE OF GOD”
I EXPRESS THE GLORY OF GOD
Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself…
Perhaps this is one of the most profound thoughts Jesus ever gave to the world, for it really tells us that when man is glorified in God, then God is glorified in man. And it means exactly this: Life is a mirror to each one of us, and as we see the glory of God in this mirror, so shall this mirror reflect back to us that same glory. For Jesus says that if God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in Himself. So shall the image and its reflection become one even as the Father and the Son are one, in glory, in honor and in majesty and might. No more exalted concept of Divine union could possibly be given than this.
Today, then, I glorify myself in God and I glorify God in me. For I am in Him and He is in me. And as He is glorified in me, so am I glorified in Him. I do give thanks for this intimate and complete union of my soul with its Center and its Source. And I do recognize in myself and in others the glory of the incarnated God. Continue reading “Mar. 12, 2017 – I EXPRESS THE GLORY OF GOD”
I AM RADIANT WITH THE HEALTH OF GOD
Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily…
Whatever we identify ourselves with we tend to become. Whatever we think about gradually becomes a subconscious pattern, always tending to manifest itself in our experience. Therefore we should endeavor to identify our physical bodies with the spiritual Reality which is the very substance and essence of the physical being. Continue reading “Mar. 11, 2017 – I AM RADIANT WITH THE HEALTH OF GOD”
I GIVE THANKS FOR THE BLESSINGS OF GOD
And he … took the five loaves, and two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
Have you and I had the faith to bless that which perhaps seemed so very small – a loaf of bread and a fish – and to expect it to become multiplied in our experience to such an extent that it would not only bless us but also bless everyone around us? We cannot help but believe that as Jesus broke the bread and blessed it, in his own mind he saw it multiplied and growing and flowing out to those around him. Continue reading “Mar. 10, 2017 – I GIVE THANKS FOR THE BLESSINGS OF GOD”
I WITNESS EVERYWHERE THE BEAUTY OF GOD
And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us…
I believe it was Plato who said that God is love, truth and beauty. It has always seemed wonderful to me that one of the world’s greatest thinkers should have included beauty as a necessary part of the Divine nature. How evident this beauty is everywhere we look! How wonderful is the landscape, the sunset or the color of the desert at dawn. How beautiful is the daffodil in its sweet simplicity. And what majestic beauty and strength in the mountain and the wave. Continue reading “Mar. 09, 2017 – I WITNESS EVERYWHERE THE BEAUTY OF GOD”
