GOD AROUND ME, GOD WITHIN ME, ALL IS WELL
One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all. Ephesians 4: 5,6
We live in the midst of an unlimited Presence, forever in action as unlimited Mind. It created us, and it sustains us. It operates through us. All it asks of us is our recognition of It. As we affirm the Presence and Power of God in our lives, something happens within us to improve us. This can be tested by anyone who wishes to see what will happen when God works in his experience. It requires no advanced study, no educational background, no particular vocabulary or posture. The process of approaching the Deity is merely one of knowing It is, and that It abides within. What we affirm, we become. As we affirm God, we actually become the Sons of God and heirs to all that God is and has. “Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh unto you.”
There is only one Presence, God, and I am in It. There is only one Power, God, and it acts through me this day. There is only one Mind, God, and it is my mind now. All around me at every instant is the same Presence that enfolded Jesus. The same mind which acted through him is now in action through me. I am the heir of all that God is and has and I know it. I live in a Spiritual universe governed by a Spiritual law that is always working for my good. I am safe for God is with me. I am wise for God is in me as my consciousness. There is nothing to fear. God around me, God within me, all is well with me today.
