I LIFE UP MY CUP OF ACCEPTANCE, KNOWING THE DIVINE OUTPOURING FILLS IT TO THE BRIM
… God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.
II Corinthians 9: 8
We lift up our cup of acceptance to the Divine Bounty when we think affirmatively and with gratitude to the Giver of all life. Daily we should practice affirming that our cup is filled and running over, always remembering that when we affirm for ourselves we must affirm for others. Living and letting live, giving and receiving, loving and being loved, our cup of acceptance will be filled from the horn of God’s abundance.
I am living in the continual expectancy that every good thing in my experience shall be multiplied. There is neither doubt nor uncertainty in my mind. Every denial is transformed into an affirmation, every negative into an acceptance, every “no” into a “yes.” I know that the Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life. I have complete confidence in this Spirit. I know that I am loved of It and needed by It. I feel at home with It.
Today is filled with blessing for myself and others. The past is gone and I gladly loose it and let it go. The present is filled with peace and joy, and the future with hope. Gratefully I accept the presence of Love and Divine Givingness, and gladly I extend this Love and Givingness to everyone I meet. I am made whole with the wholeness of the Spirit. Gently, but with complete certainty, I am guided into right action and successful accomplishment of all good desires. This I accept. This I experience.
