Honesty
I FACE LIFE HONESTLY, AND I AM FREE.
At times we may feel afraid to be our authentic selves, to expose our real thoughts and feelings for fear of rejection. We may even approach prayer with this same fear. But if we hide our real thoughts, beliefs, and longings, we separate ourselves from God and from others.
We needn’t fear being who we truly are. The self that we try to hide and keep in the background is a worthy and wonderful expression of God.
When we approach prayer with trust and honesty, we find release and peace. Light shines into the dark corners of our mind and heart. Our honest prayer for guidance never goes unanswered. Our honest prayer for understanding is heard. Our honest prayer for Truth sets us free.

The truth will make you free.—John 8:32

Confidence - Thursday, May 30, 2013 | Daily Word

Confidence
I TAKE ACTION TO MANIFEST MY HIGHEST GOOD.
Because I have faith in God, I have faith in myself. I have all the tools I need to achieve my dreams, for God within me is all-wise, all-knowing, all-conquering Spirit.
Through the power of God, I transcend any appearance of lack or limitation. If I feel I need more patience, more perseverance, more understanding, or if I want to become a more loving person, Spirit will reveal to me what I must do to succeed and grow.
Through prayer, I draw upon the spirit of God for answers, and I move forward with confidence. I take action to manifest my highest good.
As I keep my mind and heart open to inspiration and guidance, my faith in God increases and so does my faith in myself.

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.—Psalm 37:5

Journey
I AM FULFILLED ON MY LIFE’S JOURNEY.
When I am at a crossroads, what do I do? Do I take the familiar path or the one less traveled? Whichever path I choose, I make a commitment to enjoy the journey. All paths lead me to, and through, new adventures.
Even when I am not making major life decisions, I enjoy my daily path. Whether I am going to work, to church, or to school, whether I am on vacation or performing a routine task, I remind myself to enjoy all life has to offer. I look around and see the good that abounds. As I do, I experience new joys I might otherwise have missed.
With each new day, I experience fulfillment on my life’s journey.

I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live.—Ecclesiastes 3:12

Tribute
I HONOR THE COURAGE AND SELFLESS SERVICE OF THOSE WHO GAVE TO OUR COUNTRY.
Many nations and cultures set aside a day to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed for the common good. With deep respect, I honor those who have served courageously to preserve our safety and security.
In quiet moments of thankful prayer, I inwardly honor those who have served our nation. I honor them outwardly by allowing their example to inspire my own endeavors.
As I pay homage to the courage and generosity of others who came before me, I also appreciate those qualities in myself and the people I care about. I am grateful for the willingness of people everywhere to give of themselves, creating a better world for all.
If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it.—1 Corinthians 12:26

Wholeness
WHOLENESS IS ALWAYS PRESENT.
I am a divine expression of God—whole, strong, resilient, and vitally alive. Made in the image and likeness of God, I have the capacity to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
When a health challenge arises in me or someone I care about, I visualize wholeness in the midst of the situation and affirm a mighty healing. I know any illness or injury is temporary, while the immanence of God is permanent.
In prayer and meditation, I picture God’s healing energy in every cell and organ. I affirm wholeness. The life of God flows through me and through those I love. In God, we are whole and healed.
The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.—Matthew 6:22

Flexibility
I AM OPEN AND FLEXIBLE IN EVERY SITUATION.

When I watch trees swaying in the breeze, I am reminded of the importance of being flexible. If it were not for flexibility, the trees would break at the first gust of wind.
I, too, must be flexible—in my expectations, my attitudes, and my view of the world. By being flexible, I open myself to new ideas and opportunities. I do not resist growth, progress, or change. Instead, when challenging situations arise, I bend with the winds of change and I am flexible.
As I gain a new appreciation of the world around me and everyone in it, I thrive and grow. With flexibility, I sway in the breezes of life.
You should rather open your hand, willingly lending enough to meet the need, whatever it may be. —Deuteronomy 15:8

Guidance
I AM RECEPTIVE TO INFINITE WISDOM.
Whether I invite a particular change or it seems thrust on me, change is unsettling. “What should I do?” “What can I do?” I may ask. While advice from others may be helpful, it might also lead me to overthink until I am even more confused.
I turn within to shed divine light on the subject. Going deeper than surface appearances, I become receptive to infinite wisdom. I quiet my thinking mind, and in the stillness, I allow my intuition to be awakened. I know the answers are within me, and I wait for them to unfold. With clarity and calm, I summon the courage to act on the divine guidance I receive. I am thankful for a greater good unfolding through me now.
You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me with honor.—Psalm 73:24

Pray for Others
I PRAY FOR OTHERS, KNOWING THEY ARE DIVINELY SUPPORTED.
When people I care about are facing tough circumstances, ill health, or challenging relationships, it may seem overwhelming. With my mind and heart centered on God, I remember that each spiritual being is on an eternal life journey. Difficult circumstances can lead to a deeper awareness of God’s indwelling presence and power.
The presence of God is more powerful than any temporary life condition. God moves in, through, and as every person. With gratitude, I affirm that my family, friends, and coworkers are divinely supported through every challenge. I affirm they are guided by God’s wisdom and enfolded in divine love. For this truth, I am grateful.
I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers.—Ephesians 1:16

Generosity
I GIVE LOVINGLY AND GENEROUSLY.
True generosity means giving without expectation of reward. The blessing comes from the act of giving itself. Sharing my time, talent, and treasure with others is a pleasure, and I do it lovingly and generously.
Being kind and friendly, being cheerful, listening with compassion, letting someone know they are not alone—these are the most generous gifts I can share. When giving is backed by wisdom and love, it is a divine blessing.
As I give, I become a channel through which God’s gifts express in the world. The blessings of God are abundant—so I give without reservation, allowing God to express through me in generous and loving ways.
A generous person will be enriched.—Proverbs 11:25

Free
I AM FREE TO REALIZE MY UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.
Feelings of unworthiness or self-doubt can cripple our ability to cope with life’s challenges. If I recognize low self-esteem in myself, I take back my power by changing my pattern of thinking. I realize that doubt and worry are nothing but thoughts. I imagine scooping these thoughts up with a bubble wand and gently waving them into the air. I am relieved as I watch them drift away and disappear into nothingness.
Divine Love frees me from limiting thoughts. It is unconditional love, my ballast through every circumstance.
I have the power to choose my feelings and thoughts. So today, I choose peace, worthiness, and joy. I claim freedom from limitation and realize my full potential.
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.—Psalm 119:165

Harmony - Monday, May 20, 2013 | Daily Word


Harmony
IN HARMONY OF MIND AND PURPOSE, OUR DIFFERENCES FALL AWAY.
Though one ant alone may be unable to rebuild a damaged anthill, the whole colony working together can move a mountain of dirt. Likewise, many people collaborating toward a common goal can accomplish seeming miracles.
In the wake of a storm, we pick up the pieces together. When floodwaters submerge a community, we work as neighbors to clean up and rebuild. Nations help nations when human needs are greater than divisions or boundaries. As we work in harmony, differences fall away and strangers become friends. My earnest prayer is for harmony of mind and purpose in times of greatest need as well as times of joy.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, … that you be united in the same mind and the same purpose.—1 Corinthians 1:10

New Dawn
I AM FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
As I open my eyes to the morning light, I am rested, renewed, and ready for a new day—a day filled with hope and promise. I am filled with the spirit of God.
How will today be different from yesterday or the day before? While I may travel the same roads, see the same people, or do the same kind of work, I am open to seeing life from a fresh, new perspective. I awaken to spiritual awareness.
Mindful of the activity of God in my life, I am receptive to a new idea, whether it appears as a slow dawning or a flash of inspiration. I revel in divine discovery. The spirit of God guides my every step and breathes life into each sacred moment.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.—John 14:26

Divine Order
I OPEN MY HEART TO LOVE AND MY LIFE TO DIVINE ORDER.
Though I intend to love others as myself, when I conflict with someone, I might consider him or her an adversary. I could, however, see them differently. I pause and ask myself, How else might I view our relationship? This person may be my teacher in some way. What am I to learn from him or her? I open my mind to a different possibility. I open my heart to acceptance.
As I broaden my perspective, I become a radiant expression of unconditional love. I love even in the presence of conflict. No matter what the other person intended, I intend to see God’s goodness. Through this changed perspective, divine order prevails. I look for the good, for the gift. I love and I live a “divine order” life.
Even though you intended to do harm to me, God intended it for good.—Genesis 50:20

IN GOD, I LIVE, MOVE, AND HAVE MY BEING.
I am sheltered by the presence of God within. The more I consciously center myself in the Presence, the more I feel safe and protected.
What is there to fear when I know that wherever I am, God is? What is there to worry about when I know that God is working through me as the Spirit of wisdom, power, and intelligence?
God guides me as I listen with awareness and follow my intuition. Even in the middle of a difficult situation, I trust the wisdom of God to help and protect me. God is my shield in all circumstances. In God, I live, move, and have my being, and I am safe.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.—Psalm 18:2

I AM NEVER APART FROM GOD’S LOVE AND COMFORT.
We cannot be where God is not. God is in the darkness and the light; at the peak of the highest mountain and in the deepest cave; in the raging storm and the gentle breeze.
I may think I am separate from God—but in Truth, God is here with me. With a thought, a prayer, or the awakening of my heart, I become aware of the loving presence of Spirit. In this very moment, I am comforted as peace washes over me. I am enfolded in divine, unconditional love, safe, and protected.
When I am ready, I will consider what is next; but for now, I rest in the Presence.
If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast.—Psalm 139:9-10

Joy
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WITHIN IS MY TREASURE AND JOY.
Everyone delights in finding hidden treasure. Whether a child discovers coins buried in a sandbox or an adult stumbles upon a priceless antique in the attic—finding unexpected wealth is joyous! The greatest treasure, however, isn’t hidden at all. It is the kingdom of heaven within. God’s abiding presence brings treasures of love, wholeness, and life.
Joy comes from discovering God as my source of wisdom, strength, and joy. God’s limitless supply meets every need. This is treasure indeed! I need not search for happiness on the outside when the kingdom of heaven is here on the inside.
The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.—Matthew 13:44

Why Must I Share The Joy of Jesus?

Free to Share

There are so many people both lost and hurting in sin. What is the relief from them today? The typical answer is generally more sin, i.e.,drugs, sex, violence, crime and pain. We are witness crimes against people at an inhuman portions. The question is why?

I read that a man held three young-women prisoner for over 10 years for whatever he pleased. Why? People blowing what people at a well meaning marathon for what reason? The simple answer is sin, in other words an absence of true love.

The Joy of Jesus is that sinners are saved by grace.What do we mean by this statement? Jesus came into this world to save sinners, which is everyone. Jesus died on the cross so that we may see the light. God raised Jesus on the third day so that we may live with Him in perfect peace.Joy.

Given this tremendous gift of faith in a people lost in sin to be saved without merit is a gift of joy. Therefore it must be shared. The Holy Spirit has used me to share this message of love to all who have eyes and hears to pay sharp attention to the meaning of this gift of both love and joy. This is why we must like and share an answer to life's basic question against the sins of the world. Jesus.

Easygoing - Tuesday, May 14, 2013 | Daily

Easygoing
I AM CALM AND EASYGOING.
Life can be busy, but rather than rushing from one activity to another, I remind myself, “Easy does it.” I remember to slow down and fully savor each moment of my life.
Throughout the day, I give myself breathing space by pausing frequently for a few minutes of prayer and meditation. Bringing my awareness within, I notice my breath as it becomes steady and calm. Even in a brief moment of quiet, I sense the presence of God within me. I am enfolded in holiness, resting in Spirit.
This small break helps me relax and open to the joy of being alive. I am aware, awake, and in the flow as I continue with my day in an easygoing manner.
Those who listen to me will be secure and will live at ease.—Proverbs 1:33
