In springtime, all is made new. As buried bulbs push up through the ground, I behold the cycle of Life at work. I discover the same kind of drive in me to create a new life for myself.
I am free to release old ideas, habits, or preconceptions. I choose to think and do only what supports my highest good. Each moment offers me the gift of making a new choice. I deserve the life I dream of—the life I was meant for. Every day I remind myself: I am free! I am free! My freedom grows as I trust in my God-given power.
The seed of new possibilities has been planted in me. I blossom in every area of my life. I am happy, joyous, and free!
For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.—Galatians 5:1
If I have been feeling angry or critical, I recognize that I may be disconnected from God’s peace within. Today I rise above these feelings, release them, and reconnect with the presence of God in me. As I meditate, I feel divine love moving in and through me. Loving-kindness begins to emanate from me to each person I meet.
Love is the greatest harmonizing force in the world. It dissolves any feelings of negativity or judgment. It fills my heart with peace.
As I discover and express the peace of God, I share it with others. As I do, they, too, awaken to peace within. As each individual recognizes and expresses peace and love, the world is blessed. One person at a time, we contribute to a world of peace.
A harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.—James 3:18
When I need guidance, I go directly to the source of divine wisdom. I close my eyes and relax into my breath. I gently release the chatter in my mind, letting thoughts drift away like faint clouds sweeping across a blue sky. Settling into this silent place of peace, I find the all-knowing mind of God. I ask, rest, and listen.
God’s will is always for the highest good of all concerned. It reveals next steps that unfold easily without force or manipulation. Divine guidance nudges me toward my good. I recognize its wisdom as an inner knowing and a feeling of peace in having received the answers I seek.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.–Romans 12:2
If ever I fear I don’t have enough, I remember the story of the prophet Elisha and the poor widow. Elisha advised the widow to fear not, but to recognize what she had. He blessed the small amount of oil in her home and had her gather more vessels in preparation for its increase. Oil flowed, every available vessel was filled, and the widow was able to provide for her family.
Prosperity was demonstrated through the widow’s gratitude, faith, and action; the good she prepared for came to her. I demonstrate prosperity as I bless and appreciate all I have and make room for more. All I need flows freely to me. As I receive with faith the riches of God’s kingdom, abundance is mine.
Then go in, and shut the door behind you and your children, and start pouring into all these vessels; when each is full, set it aside.—2 Kings 4:4
[Intro:] Jesus, You?re the center of my joy. All that?s good and perfect comes from You. You?re the heart of my contentment. Hope for all I do. Jesus, You?re the center of my joy.
[Verse 1:] When I?ve lost my direction, You?re the compass for my way. You?re the fire n? light, when nights are long and cold. In sadness You are the laughter that shadows all my fears. When I'm all alone, Your hand is there to hold. Oooh
