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. This is why Jesus said to judge not according to appearances but to judge righteously.

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.

TODAY I SHALL WALK IN THE LIGHT, MY MIND SHALL BE ILLUMINED
Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord should be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
Who uses well his light, Reverting it its (source so) bright, Will from his body ward all blight.
The Tao Te King
The virtuous and well-conducted man, your majesty, is like a medicine in destroying the poison of human corruption; is like a healing herb in quieting the disease of human corruption; is like water in removing dirt and defilement of human corruption; is like the magic jewel in giving all good fortune to men.
Buddhism in Translations
There are so many illustrations in the sacred texts of the world, relative to the Light. The Spirit is thought of as being the essence of light. Man is spoken of as being the “candle of the Lord.” “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.” That is, the darkness has no power over light; light will overcome darkness, but darkness cannot overcome light.

TODAY I LIVE IN ABUNDANCE, FOR GOD SUPPORTS ME IN EVERY WAY
I shall not want.
I live in a universe that is God-created and God-sustained, and I shall never lack any good thing. The Intelligence that brought forth this universe is the Intelligence of my mind today. The lavishness of nature is proof to me that my own personal life can be filled with an abundance beyond the limits of my present belief.

I AM VITALIZED BY THE STRENGTH OF GOD
…I shall be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.
Isaiah 49: 5
If God is all the life that there is, then this life contains the only energy there is. If we are really hooked up with the eternal, everlasting and perfect Energy, then we should never become weary at all. And when we have an enthusiastic and glad outlook on life we seldom do become weary. Continue reading “Mar. 29, 2017 – I AM VITALIZED BY THE STRENGTH OF GOD”
I EXPERIENCE THE WHOLENESS OF GOD
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
I Corinthians 13: 9 – 10
How true it is that we do see as through a glass, darkly, or only in part. But to all of us there come fleeting moments when our inward vision is opened and we seem to look out upon a newer and broader horizon. The Apostle tells us that when that which is perfect shall come, then that which is in part shall be done away. Continue reading “Mar. 27, 2017 – I EXPERIENCE THE WHOLENESS 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.
