Inherit

I GRACIOUSLY SAY YES TO MY DIVINE INHERITANCE AND USE IT WISELY.
Within me is the potential for meaningful, creative, and dynamic living. I am worthy and free to demonstrate life, wisdom, understanding, strength, and order—attributes of my divine inheritance.
Inheriting the kingdom comes with the responsibility to use what has been given. It requires the willingness to accept my good and believe in possibilities. I joyously accept and use my inherent talents and strengths to build a life of fulfillment and good works.
Every day and every experience offers the opportunity to express more of my innate potential to positively affect our collective consciousness. I graciously say yes to my divine inheritance and use it wisely.


I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.—Matthew 16:19

I DO NOT RESIST CHANGE FOR I KNOW ONLY GOD THE GOOD GOVERNS ME.
I do not resist change, however challenging it may be. When I am called on to meet it, I know this truth: As the door to a former way of life closes, another door opens. I know that only good governs me, my circumstances, and my environment, for God governs me.
I do not resist change. I maintain my poise. I do not give way to fearful thoughts. I do not persist in the feeling that I cannot be happy in other circumstances or other places.
I find that change is easy to make when I remember that God has not given me a spirit of fear but a spirit that is wonderfully flexible and adaptable. God has given me a spirit that welcomes new ideas, new ways of living, new places, new friends. God has given me a spirit that is willing to grow, a spirit that is willing to unfold and to change.


Grow in the grace of our Lord.—2 Peter 3:18

THE HARMONIZING POWER OF GOD WORKS IN EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE.
If situations in my life feel out of sync, I pause for a moment of prayer. As I turn within, I come back to center. I pray to understand how I can harmonize with the ways of the Divine. I am reminded that “all things work together for good.” A higher power is at work in my life and in the lives of those I hold dear.
In the stillness of prayer, I relax and let go of any worry or concern. I give thanks for the power and presence of God. My life is unfolding as it should, and I am patient. In tune with God, I know what is mine to do and when to do it. All is well. I rest in this peaceful awareness and emerge with a new sense of direction, appreciation, and joy.


We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.—Romans 8:28

Let Go, Let God - Monday, July 28, 2014 | Daily Word



I LET GO AND FIND ANSWERS WITHIN.
Confinement can be self-inflicted. Just like the monkey who reaches in a jar to grab a banana: When he makes a fist around the food and refuses to let go, he becomes stuck. Sometimes I find myself cramped and confined, stuck in patterns, beliefs, or behaviors that do not serve me well.
My return to freedom and renewal begins with realizing my limitations are self-imposed. With awareness, I can release my grip and turn to the Divine Presence. “Letting go” allows me to relax and realize I am not alone. “Letting God” leads me to answers, healing, and peace of mind. I am no longer confined to the ways of the past. As I place my faith in God, I open to new opportunities.


Happy are those who make the Lord their trust.—Psalm 40:4

Talents - Sunday, July 27, 2014 | Daily Word



I BOLDLY SHARE MY SPIRITUAL GIFTS.
Jesus’ parable of the talents expresses the spiritual law of increase. If I let fear or self-doubt prevail, I become like the servant who, upon receiving one talent from his master, buried it. When the servant returned with nothing more than the same one talent, his master took even that gift away.
I choose to live boldly in faith rather than fear, like the two other servants in Jesus’ parable who did not diminish, hide, or hoard their talents, but wisely invested all they were given. Like these faithful servants, I explore exciting and creative ways to express and share my spiritual gifts for the greatest good of all. As I honor my God-given talents, even greater gifts are revealed to me, and my joy and prosperity multiply.


You have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things.—Matthew 25:23

THE LOVE OF GOD IS EXPRESSED THROUGH MY FRIENDS.
One way the love of God expresses is through friendship. I feel valued and valuable as I connect with my friends. They deepen my experience of life, and our camaraderie is mutually supportive.
With encouraging words and supportive actions, we lift one another’s spirits. We share times of joy and adversity, growing together in friendship. We accept each other as we are and hold faith in positive outcomes for one another. We share a love that has no opposition, only respect, kindness, and a sense of ease.
As I encourage, reassure, or console a friend, I am expressing Divine Love and that love is expressed back to me.


All of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.—1 Peter

Healing

I ACTIVATE THE HEALING POWER OF DIVINE LOVE.
Love heals. Love is an energy that harmonizes any discord I might be experiencing in myself or in the world. Love is a light that reveals the truth of my wholeness.
Divine Love, everywhere present, is the very nature and essence of my being. Turning within, I recognize and activate the life-affirming and restorative power of Divine Love within me. I deserve to experience the health and wholeness inherent in me. I attract health by adopting practices of self-care and making decisions that improve my life in all aspects.
Established in the awareness of Love’s rejuvenating power, I express the truth of my essential wholeness and well-being today and every day.


The Lord, your God, is in your midst … he will renew you in his love.—Zephaniah 3:17
