TODAY I PRAISE THE HEALTH OF GOD IN MY BODY
I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works.
The law of response is the law of praise. Whatever we bless increases, and whatever we curse decreases. The key to the use of this law is to watch our ideas and note the ones we are praising. This is easy to, as the ideas we talk about the most are the ones we are praising. Like all laws it is impersonal. When we constantly discuss disease, we are actually raising its power in our lives, and the law produces further illness and discomfort. Likewise, when we are not at our best physically, we can praise the health of God in our bodies, and the law will bring forth greater ease, vitality and strength.

I TAKE DOMINION OVER MY WORLD TODAY AND HANDLE IT RIGHTLY
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands: thou hast put all things under his feet.
Timidity has never been a virtue, and modern psychology has proved that it is a definite indication of a wrong habit pattern in the unconscious. Many people who never give the impression of being timid, fail to really take dominion over their own thought and organize it into efficient patterns. As metaphysicians, we know that until we control our thinking, we shall never control the conditions of our environment, business and personal health. The point of control is always within, and the wise person starts to assume dominion over his disorganized thinking Continue reading “Feb. 07, 2018 – I TAKE DOMINION OVER MY WORLD TODAY AND HANDLE IT RIGHTLY “
I AM THE CREATION OF GOD, THEREFORE, I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visiteth him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor.
There seems to be strange quirks in the human mind. It has the ability to remember so much that is not good, and to remember so little that is good. Whenever we look to the past, we almost always remember the great hurts, and fail to recall the great joys and blessings we have once experienced. Memory, in its true spiritual sense, is the capacity to remember our origin in God and the steady unfoldment of our nature through experience.

THE FATHER IN ME DOETH THE WORK, AND I LET HIS MIND BRING FORTH PERFECT RESULTS
O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth.
Today we are labor conscious, and it is essential for us to have a correct understanding of the spiritual nature of our work. Whether this work is in the home or in the commercial world, it is the same. The spiritual idea behind all work is the individualizing of the universal action of Infinite Mind. Our jobs, regardless of location or income level, are the places where we individualize the eternal activity of God. It is that point where we “let” God unfold through us. Jesus did his mighty works because he was able to let God flow through him. We are trying to do the same, and this requires a constant reminder to our outer minds that the inner Intelligence, born of God, will work through us as we let It. Continue reading “Feb. 05, 2018 – THE FATHER IN ME DOETH THE WORK, AND I LET HIS MIND BRING FORTH PERFECT RESULTS “
I AM VICTORIOUS OVER ALL DIFFICULTIES FOR I HAVE FAITH IN GOD, THE GOOD, OMNIPOTENT
The Lord knoweth the way of righteousness; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
The victorious attitude is the one that recognizes the unlimited power of God. Without this awareness no one can be victorious over the negatives of life. Those who live without spiritual vision and understanding are forever trying to solve their problems by manipulating their human minds, and exerting their human wills. This exhausts them, frustrates them, and gives them no peace. The recognition of God as Cause, and as the Creative Power of this world brings victory to the soul. Continue reading “Feb. 04, 2018 – I AM VICTORIOUS OVER ALL DIFFICULTIES FOR I HAVE FAITH IN GOD, THE GOOD, OMNIPOTENT “
I AM SECURE FOR I AM IN THE FATHER AND THE FATHER IS IN ME
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The omnipresence, omniscience, omnipotence and Omniaction of God as Infinite Mind are the security of man. These eternal verities sustain us at every instant and in every place. They are ours in days of good cheer; they are ours in times of despair. They are never lost; they are merely forgotten in our confusion. We are not under the law of material problems and world beliefs. We are under the Law of the Spirit which maintains us in freedom and peace. Continue reading “Feb. 03, 2018 – I AM SECURE FOR I AM IN THE FATHER AND THE FATHER IS IN ME”
I GIVE THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYER
His delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
The Law of Mind never fails. Even when It delivers to us the things and conditions we do not like, It has still functioned perfectly. Our use of It determines our experience, and wise is the man who only thinks rightly. Prayer scientifically understood, is a statement of Spiritual Fact. It convinces us that good alone is true, and right alone is victorious. As we are convinced of these facts, the results are brought into our lives by the Law of Life. Continue reading “Feb. 02, 2018 – I GIVE THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYER “
I AM ESTABLISHED IN RIGHT THINKING, AND NO ONE CAN CONFUSE ME THIS DAY
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly.
The “ungodly” are those who perceive, accept and describe evil. Unfortunately there are many people whom we meet each day who are in such states of consciousness. Unless we are exceptionally careful of the ideas accepted by us, we shall let a few false ones slip into the back corners of our mind. Gradually this infiltration makes an impression, and we become discouraged and feel that all men are out to defraud us. As students of Truth, we know that this is not true, and that we must perceive the Truth operating through our fellowman. Continue reading “Feb. 01, 2018 – I AM ESTABLISHED IN RIGHT THINKING, AND NO ONE CAN CONFUSE ME THIS DAY “
I RELEASE EVERY TENSION OF MIND AND BODY
Release and ye be relaxed.
Today I release all thoughts of fear from my mind. Today I lay down the burden of carrying the load of responsibility for life for myself or for others. Today I relax all sense of strain. I remember that Emerson said “The universe remains to heart unhurt”; that Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled.” Therefore, I lay all trouble aside, seeking to look through it, beyond it, above it; to detach it from the realm of Reality, to separate it from any consciousness that it belongs to me or to anyone else, regardless of what any problem of the moment seems to be. Continue reading “Jan. 31, 2018 – I RELEASE EVERY TENSION OF MIND AND BODY”
I KNOW THAT EVERY APPARENT DEATH IS RESURRECTION, THEREFORE GLADLY I DIE TO EVERYTHING THAT IS UNLIKE GOOD
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Unhappy is he who mistakes the branch for the tree, the shadow for the substance.
Gain for yourselves, ye sons of Adam, by means of these transitory things which are not yours, that which is your own, and passeth not away. Fragments of a Faith Forgotten
We are told that we must gain a knowledge of that which cannot pass away. The Talmud says that unhappy conditions arise when we mistake shadow for substance. Even the valley of the shadow of death causes no fear when we arrive at the consciousness of the Psalmist who, from the exaltation of his Divine deliverance, proclaimed “… thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” The rod and the staff of truth is the realization of the substantiality and the permanence of that which cannot change. We are ever renewed by the passage of the Divine Light through our consciousness of wholeness into our physical organism and into every objective act, when we give the realization of the Divine Presence free passage through our thought. Emerson tells us that in these moments we are conscious that we as isolated beings are nothing, but that the Light is all. Thus he admonishes us to get our “bloated nothingness” out of the way of the Divine Circuit. How wonderful to realize this possibility to which he refers – nonresistance and nonburden. Let us, then, learn to let the burden slip from the shoulders of personal responsibility and enter into our divine union with enthusiasm.
I know that every apparent death is a resurrection. Therefore, gladly, today, I die to everything that is unlike the good. Joyfully I am resurrected into that which is beautiful, enduring and true. Silently I pass from less to more; from isolation into inclusion; from separation into oneness.
