I RELAX IN THE PEACE OF GOD   

Mar 21 2015And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7

We often wonder if peace really exists anywhere.  In a world distraught with so much confusion and chaos we deeply need an inner, abiding sense of calm and tranquility.  Peace of mind really is what the world is searching after because without it we have only a sense of insecurity and loneliness.  Without peace, deep and abiding, there can be no happiness nor contentment, no sense of security, no confidence.

I AM GOVERNED BY THE LAW OF GOD

Mar 19 2015For I delight in the law of God, after the inward man:  Romans 7: 22

This scriptural passage tells us of all that we should have delight in living.  All creation is a manifestation of the delight of God – God seeing Himself in form, God experiencing Himself in His own actions, and God knowing Himself in us as us. Continue reading “March 19, 2016”

I AM WARMED BY THE LOVE OF GOD  

Mar 18 2015Behold, 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

Mar 17 2015…one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.  John 9:25

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?

I AM ENDOWED WITH THE PERFECTION OF GOD 

Mar 16 2015Be 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 “March 16, 2016”

I AM SUPPLIED FROM THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD   

Mar 15 2015The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.  John 3:35

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 “March 15, 2016”

I ENJOY THE COMPANIONSHIP OF GOD

Mar 14 2015And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.  John 14;16

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 “March 14,2016”

I JUDGE, AND AM JUDGED, WITH THE JUSTICE OF GOD

Mar 13 2015… my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.  John 5:30

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.  He knew, and we all must learn, that it is impossible to wish something for someone else without at the same time willing it for ourselves.
