Prosperity - Saturday, September 26, 2015 | Daily Word



I EMBRACE ABUNDANT LIVING AND GIVE THANKS.
True prosperity is no mystery—it is a manifestation of faith. Jesus gave us a pattern to follow. A crowd of 5,000 who had gathered to hear him speak needed a meal. Taking five loaves and two fish, Jesus turned his attention to God. He acknowledged his Source, gave thanks for what he had, and blessed it. He anticipated an abundance of food and a miracle occurred.
I follow the example of Jesus and give thanks in advance for what I desire. I share love with others and love returns to me. I give thanks for my healthy body, nourish it, and use it to serve God. I am vigorous and vibrant. I live in faith and gratitude and I am prosperous.


And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled.—Luke 9:16-17

I TAKE GREAT CARE OF MY MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT.
Jesus taught us to love one another as ourselves. When we hear this, we may automatically think Jesus is speaking only about loving others. The truth is Jesus asks us to love ourselves first.
I am better able to care for others when I take care of myself. I honor my body temple by providing myself with good nutrition, adequate exercise, and appreciation for what I bring to the world.
I read uplifting books and magazines, I speak affirmative words about myself and others, and I refuse to be pulled down by another person’s pessimistic outlook. I look for and find the best in myself and in each person. In mind, body, and spirit, I take great care of myself.


Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light; but if it is not healthy, your body is full of darkness.—Luke 11:34

If I encounter what looks like a roadblock, I call upon my divine faculty of strength. I turn within and feel the mighty power of God. I affirm: I am strong and unstoppable!Passion wells up within me as I envision my dreams. With renewed strength and faith, I see my goals through to completion.

Relax - Saturday, September 12, 2015 | Daily Word



I RELAX AND CONNECT WITH MY SOURCE.
Sometimes I may be anxious and catch myself holding my breath. I quickly center myself by relaxing my shoulders and breathing in slowly. Then I exhale all the air from my lungs. As I let go of tension, I connect with my Source. I concentrate on my breathing for a while—mentally using my outbreaths to bring relaxation to every part of my body.
The energizing activity of God flows in and through me. Breathing in, I open my heart. Breathing out, I release the old. I experience love, joy, and gratitude in the depth of my being. The rhythm of my breath draws me into the presence of God and I relax. I am filled with the life of Spirit, surrounded by the unbounded love of God. My soul rests gratefully in sweet silence and peace.


Return, O my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.—Psalm 116:7
