Confidence
THE SPIRIT OF GOD WITHIN GUIDES ME ON THE PATH OF GOOD.
Sometimes I know what I need to do, but I hesitate to take action. Perhaps fear or concern is draining my confidence. Today I decide to move beyond any fear and stepboldly forward.
The spirit of God is with and within me. It is the source of my strength, creativity and courage. I open my heart to divine wisdom and trust in the guidance I receive. Then I let go and allow Spirit to guide my way forward.
Acting with confidence and faith opens the door to greater good in my life. I no longer hide behind fear; I have courage and faith to experience all that life has to offer. I am divinely supported and feel Spirit’s presence urging me on.
With Spirit-led momentum, I step confidently forward to accept my good.
For we walk by faith, not by sight.—2 Corinthians 5:7

Enthusiasm
I AM ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT LIFE!
Just as I can turn a different direction when I walk, I can change the direction of my thinking if I wish. If I am feeling tired, sad or disappointed and I want to feel energized, I need only change my thoughts.
I think about what brings me joy, what sparks my creativity, what excites me about being alive. I consider what a positive difference I make as I lend a hand or take better care of myself. I take action, and I feel enthusiasm, a zest for life.
A simple shift in my thinking makes all the difference. I love my life right now, and I recognize my potential. My enthusiasm is contagious! Others around me catch my positive energy. I feel the spirit of God moving through me to do mighty works!
Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord.—Romans 12:11

Guidance
GUIDANCE IS REVEALED IN THE STILLNESS OF MY MIND.
When faced with a significant decision, I may search for a solution from a variety of sources. I consider my past experiences, conduct research, or ask a friend for an opinion. At the root of my search is a desire for trustworthy guidance.
The best source, however, is within me. I quiet my thoughts and concerns, silence my analytic mind, and turn within.
I sit quietly, close my eyes and relax my body. I feel the quiet stillness of the Infinite permeating my being. In the Silence, I tap into the vast storehouse of Divine Mind—God. The divine solution brings with it peace. That is how I know it’s the right decision.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path. —Psalm 143:10

Thank You - Dr. James A. Lee

Thank You - Daily Word

Thank You
WITH GRATITUDE, I BRING YOU TO HEART AND MIND. YOU ARE A GIFT FROM GOD.
When I look back on the times I’ve shared with friends and family, I know our bonds cannot be broken. Through laughter and tears, good times and bad, we have created indelible memories.
Today I take the opportunity to tell my loved ones how much they mean to me. I give thanks for the many ways in which they have blessed and enriched my life. I seek ways to honor them.
Many people I may have never personally met have also helped make my life better. Public servants, service providers and others who work behind the scenes, all contribute to my life in significant ways. Today I also say a prayer of gratitude for the work they do and the ways in which they serve.
I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers.—Ephesians 1:16

Protected
THE POWER OF GOD PROTECTS MY LOVED ONES AND ME.
The One Presence in the universe—God the good—is all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere present. I turn to the presence of God within me to guide my choices, inspire my thinking, adjust my attitude, and infuse my interactions with love and respect.
I give thanks for the illuminating light that surrounds me, the divine love that enfolds me, and the power that protects me. Likewise, I hold this truth for my loved ones and know they are safe and secure.
With my faith and trust firmly in God, I am at peace. I am free to enjoy life, to travel and to savor new adventures, living each day with confidence.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts. —Psalm 28:7

World Peace - Dr. James A. Lee

World Peace - Saturday, May 26, 2012 | Daily WordWorld Peace
PRAYERFULLY, I STAND FOR PEACE.
In my thoughts and prayers, I affirm peace for myself and for the world. With patience and courage, I stand for peace no matter what the circumstance. I hold a vision of peace in the midst of conflict. I honor the dream of peace in each one of us.
My prayer and vision are made manifest when I serve as an understanding presence during a disagreement. Standing for peace, I encourage others to listen, to honor each other, and to seek common ground.
Every land, every nation, includes people like me who are standing for peace. We are one in Spirit, and our oneness generates true power. One by one, we stand for peace and together we bring it forth in our world.
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. —Isaiah 2:4

The Will of God in Your Life Dr. James A. Lee

Will - Friday, May 25, 2012 | Daily Word

Will
THE GIFTS OF SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING AND WILL PROPEL ME TO MY HIGHEST GOOD.
Willfulness is action without guidance. Impulsive decisions, made without careful discernment, can lead me down a rocky path. Before making a decision, I take time to quiet my inner dialogue and align with Divine Mind. In the Silence, I open to the wisdom of Spirit.
Ideas fill my imagination, beyond what I had considered possible. Divine will urges me to express my infinite potential. Powered by spiritual understanding, I am propelled to my highest good.
Divine will pushes me to move out of complacency and claim the abundant good that awaits. I open to its power and confidently pursue the realization of my God-given potential.
I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me.—John 6:38

Comfort
I GIVE AND RECEIVE FROM THE LOVE OF GOD WITHIN.

Anytime I feel disappointed or sad about some aspect of my life, I go within to the presence of God. Resting in God’s pure love, I am put at ease. The love of God comforts me.
The love I share with others springs from this Presence at the core of my being. With every caring and compassionate word and action, I am a conduit for God’s love.
I bring to mind the Prayer of Saint Francis, a prayer revered for centuries. In these words, I am reassured that as I give, so I receive:
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive.
Comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.—2 Thessalonians 2:17

Shift
I AM RENEWED IN BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT.
An automobile runs best when it is well-tuned and properly maintained—and so do I! My spiritual maintenance depends on devoting time to prayer and meditation. With proper attention to my spiritual well-being, I continue to move smoothly through life.
If I encounter bumps in the road, I shift my thinking to consider a new perspective, just as I might shift the gears on my car. I slow down to concentrate on an issue and gradually regain momentum as I attain clarity and understanding. I shift to a higher consciousness, and I gain a new perspective, a sense of peace and renewed awareness of my oneness with God.
For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth. —Isaiah 65:1

Harmony to Live in Peace

Harmony - Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | Daily Word: "Harmony
I LIVE IN HARMONY WITHIN MYSELF.
Unity co-founder Myrtle Fillmore wrote, “Keep your mind filled with joyous, constructive, beautiful, health-producing thoughts that maintain harmony in both mind and body.” Today I take her advice to heart. I observe my thinking and focus on loving and accepting myself. If I find myself slipping into negative patterns, I gently redirect my thoughts and remind myself that I am a beloved child of God.

When I enfold myself in love, joy bubbles up within me. I become more aware of the wonder in everyday living. I see myself awakening to new life.

I honor and care for myself by maintaining inner harmony. I affirm health, wholeness and balance in mind and body.

Live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.—2 Corinthians 13:11"

Healing
WHOLENESS IS MY TRUTH.
The truth about my health is this: I am whole. Nothing stands in the way of this truth; rather, I stand in the truth of my wholeness.
I align my mind, body and spirit with complete health. I reject activities, conversations and media choices that do not serve my highest good. I focus on Divine Life and know I am whole and well.
Through meditation and prayer, I align with my indwelling Spirit. My daily choices reflect the value I place on the life I’ve been given to live.
I affirm my wholeness with every thought, word and action. I am healthy, whole and complete.
I am going to bring it recovery and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.—Jeremiah 33:6

This is The Day of Pure Joy Dr. James A. Lee

Joy -  Daily Word

Joy
I AM JAZZED WITH IRREPRESSIBLE JOY!
I proclaim today to be a day of joy, no matter what the current circumstances in my life may be. I do not dwell in pessimism, lack, fear or doubt. Today I am jazzed with irrepressible joy!
My exuberance is fueled by my awareness of true joy—the joy that lives within me. It does not depend on outer situations or other people. This joy is innate. It comes from the unfailing Source of happiness and serenity within me.
When I allow joy to surface, even in difficult times, its powerful energy calls forth my good. As I share joy freely, my own joy is increased.
For you shall go out in joy … the mountains and the hills before you shall burst into song. —Isaiah 55:12

Let Go, Let God - Saturday, May 19, 2012 | Daily Word

Let Go, Let God
I LET GO OF CONCERNS AND LET GOD BE GOD IN MY LIFE.
Gardeners consider the sunlight and soil conditions each plant needs to thrive. A gardener’s work begins with designing the garden, preparing the soil, and planting the seeds. Watering, weeding and thinning the crop are necessary. Gardening involves proper preparation and continual care.
The desires of my heart are like seeds. They respond to careful planning and nurturing, and they manifest in their own time. Just as a gardener knows not to disturb germinating seeds to check their progress, I learn to be patient and not worry as my life unfolds. I trust that God is ever-present. My desires will bear fruit in time, and all is well.
The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps. —Proverbs 16:9

Divine Order - Friday, May 18, 2012 | Daily Word


Divine Order

DIVINE ORDER IS AT WORK IN MY LIFE AND I AM GRATEFUL.
A magnificent order underlies all of creation. It is found in the macrocosm of our galaxy, as we see the placement of sun, earth and moon in perfect alignment to support life on this planet. Order is also manifest in the microcosm, as the smallest atoms of oxygen and hydrogen bond to form water vapor, water and ice. Divine intelligence is revealed in all things. God eternally creates, sustains and re-creates all that is.
Just as divine order works in nature, it also works in my life. I am at peace knowing that my good is now becoming visible. I am grateful for the divine creative process.
Who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night. —Jeremiah 31:35

Power - Dr. James A. Lee

Power 


Power
I USE THE POWER OF MY WORDS TO CO-CREATE THE LIFE I WANT TO LIVE.
In the first creation story of the Bible, God creates the universe by speaking into the void. God’s words bring light, sky and all visible and physical aspects of the world into being.
With this as my model, I use my words intentionally to create a life of meaning and purpose. I create harmony in my home, workplace and community by mindfully choosing my words. If I am tempted to complain or blame, I turn within. In the Silence, I affirm the light of God in the situation. A new way of being emerges.
My creative power is reflected in my words, so I choose them carefully. I affirm abundance, wholeness and peace.
God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.—Genesis 1:5

LIVE SIMPLY
I live simply by setting my mind on Spirit.
The world seems more complex every day, and though I can't simplify society, I can simplify my own life. As I focus on Spirit, the complicated becomes more clear. Trouble does not disturb me when I am aware of Spirit's simple solutions. The answers are within.
I live simply, allowing God's gentle presence to work in and through me. I trust in the ever-present love and wisdom of the Divine.
When my mind is attuned to Spirit, I see the world from a higher perspective. Life's complexities dissolve. I relax, and time seems to slow down. I move gracefully through my days. Setting my sights on joy, my heart on love and my mind on peace, I live according to Spirit, simply and at ease.
Those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.--Romans 8:5

Christian Women - The Pain and Joy of Motherhood

FaithWriters.com-Christian Women - The Pain and Joy of Motherhood


The Pain and Joy of Motherhood 
by Dr.James A. Lee
12/31/69
Not For Sale

What is one of the greatest days for which there is no holiday? Out of all the special days; which one stirs the greatest sense of joy and pain between the question of death vs. the living? What day brings tremendous joy and love that can barely be expressed? The mothers of the world are perhaps the only people on Earth to understand the depths of motherhood.

Jesus understood that His mother Mary was blessed among all women. At the cross, Jesus did not want His mother to weep for Him, but for the children of the future, so that they were to endure the hardships ahead. The mothers were the only ones to stand firmly with Jesus as he died on the cross. Sure John was was there, but what happened to the the other disciples?

Motherhood has changed so dramatically today because of the social economic conditions. Women are often facing single parent status; bread-winner, and standard barer for society. The Christian Faith is generally dominated by mothers.

There are so many mothers that have moved on to glory. We pray for their souls and praise God and thank God for the gift of love we had in this life. Jesus knew that the times in which we live will be a real challenge. However, Jesus understood the absolute power of faith.

Jesus died in the cross to save us from sin. God raised Jesus from the grave where he first appeared to the women/mothers to care for his anointing. But He was risen. My mother is alive but barely. This mother's day is one of joy and pain. The Joy of Jesus is the true gift of motherhood. Blessed is the fruit of thy womb. Happy Mother's Day to all God's Children....

INNER PEACE
My world is at peace because I am at peace.
I accept the responsibility to generate peace on earth by keeping myself in harmony. No matter how confused outer circumstances may become, I do not allow them to disturb my inner serenity. I am the keeper of my thoughts, and my reaction to turmoil is one of calm assuredness.
When my mind is at peace, I am receptive to the inspiration of the Christ within, and I find a way out of every difficulty. My ability to meet conditions with grace comes from my peace of mind. I do not imagine disastrous scenarios; I visualize what I desire and allow my thoughts to dwell on it in peace.
The indwelling Christ shows me the way of peace, and I follow.
Listen to me; be silent, and I will teach you wisdom. --Job 33:33

FAITH
In faith, I "touch the cloak" of Spirit.
One day as Jesus walked among the people, healing and teaching, a woman touched his cloak and was healed of a hemorrhage. She thought it was the personal power of Jesus that healed her, but Jesus reminded her that her own faith made it possible.
I know that with God all things are possible. In prayer and meditation, I "touch the cloak" as I align my body, heart and mind with Spirit.
Each time I pray, my faith grows. Each time I see good unfolding in my life and in the lives of others, my faith expands. Each time I turn to God within, I "touch the cloak" once more.
Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well." And instantly the woman was made well.--Matthew 9:22

Apologies

If you . . . remember that your brother has something against you, . . . first be reconciled to your brother. —Matthew 5:23-24
Mark messed up. He arrived an hour late at a restaurant where he was to meet a friend from church. The friend had already left. Feeling sorry about his mistake, Mark purchased a gift certificate from the restaurant and stopped at a local card shop to search for an apology card. Among hundreds of cards, he was surprised to find only a few “sorry for my actions” cards in an obscure part of the store. He purchased one and gave it to his friend who accepted his apology.
Although apology cards may not be popular, apologies are frequently needed in our relationships. Apologizing is a biblical action. Jesus instructed His followers to make things right with those we’ve offended (Matt. 5:23-24; 18:15-20). And the apostle Paul said, “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all” (Rom. 12:18). Living at peace may require apologies.
Apologies can be hard to make because it takes a spirit of humility to admit our mistake, which may not come naturally for us. But taking responsibility for how we were wrong in a situation can bring healing and restoration to a relationship.
Have you messed up? Swallow your pride and make the first move—even if you can’t find a card to help you say it. —Anne Cetas
Whenever you offend a friend,
Apologize and make things right;
For if you will admit your wrong,
You may avoid a needless fight. —Sper
The best way to get the last word is to apologize.
