magi

“Midnight foretells the dawn. Led by a solitary star amid the darkness, the Magi of old foretold the Messiahship of Truth.” (Science and Health, p. 95)

We can join the wise men who recognized in the night what the dawn would bring. We can commemorate that amazing occasion where the world was led to a humble place to embrace a powerful promise.

Let’s not fail to glimpse that star. We can find it in others, in experiences that inspire, in scriptural verses, in angel ideas that come to us just when we need them. We can find that star in our own hearts—a light within beckoning us to follow through, to trust that this saving radiance is to be appreciated deeply and accepted gratefully.

We have this light of Love in us. It encourages us forward not only to see that Christ-Truth and to accept the glorious message of freedom, but to freely share it as well. We can follow that star as it leads us out of personal darkness, to the reality of God’s presence, forgiveness, peace. And we can keep on following it, walking not only toward that Christ-idea, that Christmas glory, but with it.

Let’s enjoy the midnight hour, even the mystery of the unknowing, and wake with expectation of the goodness to come.

renewal

“The Lord is close to all whose hearts are crushed by pain, and he is always ready to restore the repentant one.” (Psalms 34: 18, the Passion Translation)

We have a tender Father-Mother always ready to comfort us. When we may feel the furthest from peace, this is when our God is close to us. We can rely on the gentle caress of divine Love to wipe away tears of grief and disappointment. We can lean into the arms of kindness and understanding from the One Who knows and loves us.

God is ready to restore us. He is able to make us new when we have lost our way. When we make mistakes, we aren’t abandoned by Him nor are we failures in the world. God sees us for who we truly are, accepts our repentance—our realization of errors and changed hearts—and opens the way for new opportunities, a fresh start.

God, perfect Life and Love, is here. You are not alone. You are not hopeless. You have solace, uplift, a steady ready hand to lift you up, to carry you forward, to pull you in for a holy and healing embrace.

pourpeace

“Now, may the Lord himself, the Lord of peace, pour into you his peace in every circumstance and in every possible way. The Lord’s tangible presence be with you all.” (II Thessalonians 3: 16, the Passion Translation)

Paul preached and taught widely and enthusiastically. He led people who were from different locations and having varied perspectives, to awake to the Christ-message of God’s goodness and healing power.

And Paul was also generous with his blessings. His prayers were beautiful blankets of sweet salvation cast upon his followers, leaving them with an awareness not only of the Word of God, but of the Spirit of Love which always accompanies His ideas.

We can receive this benediction today. We can eagerly and gratefully open ourselves up to receive true peace. We can acknowledge joyously that no matter what appears to be confronting us, or how far from certain we seem to be, God’s presence is with us, and it can be felt.

Paul knew that this tangible presence was with him and with all. He felt it, demonstrated it, was set free physically and mentally, by this awareness.

And Paul’s message begins with this word: Now. So, let us now feel that peace, straight from God, to our open hearts and our willing minds.

soul

“And how does a man benefit if he gains the whole world and loses his soul in the process?” (Mark 8: 36, the Living Bible)

Let’s tend to our souls. Let care for the inner spirit, the essence of who we are individually, and awake to our greater purpose.

It may seem like gaining riches and fame, ease in the material world, is the ultimate goal. And there certainly isn’t anything wrong with prosperity. But our motives and methods make a difference. For to seek gain at the expense of others, is costly to our souls. It moves against that love within that makes us whole and keeps us secure in our being.

If we seek power in order to feel we can control others, to show we are better than them, or to achieve accolades, we deny God Who is good and the only power. We try to take what isn’t ours to have, and in doing so, we lose the integrity that is also our protection. We may gain attention, but we lose our faith, our goodness, our security, and our hearts.

Let’s pause and strive for what is right and good, knowing we can achieve more with God and His intention, and we can keep our souls intact as well.

“And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the Lord.” (Zechariah 8: 17)

The Lord is quite clear here. He is telling the people of Jerusalem how best to please Him. God is straightforward and specific with them on what is intolerable to Him.

These words articulate the law of God, good. They tell the ancient followers and us today that if we are to feel like children of God—free, blessed, loved, worthy—then we would do best to give up those actions and thoughts that deny this heritage.

We may think it’s okay to think badly of others if we keep it to ourselves and don’t act upon our feelings toward them. But if we imagine evil, we are harboring ill will, wishing for another to suffer, and this goes against God’s purpose, against the will of Love. These imaginings do not honor God, nor do they give us the peace that we truly seek. Likewise, to be dishonest, or to make false claims, is to go against God’s nature, and so to lose the power of Truth and the blessings it naturally brings.

God is not asking us to be something we are not. He wants us to be who we truly are—loving, honest, kind, the active expression of His own true wisdom and glorious goodness.

powerofgod

“I am the Lord All-Powerful. So don’t depend on your own power or strength, but on my Spirit.” (Zechariah 4: 6, Contemporary English Version)

We often like to feel that we can handle things. We value our own independence, our abilities, our intelligence. Even when we feel less than capable, there is a tendency to believe that we must prove that we can manage everything, that we are strong and in control.

But this human view of things, while in some ways admirable, is flawed, burdensome, and unwise overall. For it doesn’t honor God. When we claim personal power, we deny omnipotence, and deprive ourselves of that true energy that can bring all things to pass rightly, timely, and without the ego’s limited perspective and unreliable resources.

God’s Spirit has no limitations. He is boundless in His goodness, His presence, and His righteousness. We can let go of the need to be god to our own lives and to others, and rest humbly and gratefully in God’s strength, His power, His control. We can do this because this is wisdom. It gets the job done.

And we can rejoice that the Spirit of God on which we can rely is also Love. He is trustworthy, perfect, and He accomplishes for us what is progressive, and which gives us freedom and peace as well.

sunstorm

“The lightnings and thunderbolts of error may burst and flash till the cloud is cleared and the tumult dies away in the distance. Then the raindrops of divinity refresh the earth. As St. Paul says: ‘There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God’ (of Spirit).” (Science and Health, p. 288)

The storms of life around us and the tumult in our thoughts can feel overwhelming. It may feel like we are in the midst of destructiveness. Fear and discouragement may overtake us, with hope seeming dim at the very least.

But just as the earth can look even more pristine and the sky more vibrant after a storm comes through, so we can see these darker hours as leading us to a resolving, a rest, a new outlook. We can be alert and thoughtful in the shadowy times, but unafraid. The mortal scene bashes away at us, trying to get our attention. But we are well-fortified. The noise and flash may be distracting, but it can’t harm us.

Let’s be serene in the darkness, because we know the light is at hand. The raindrops of divinity are God’s own inspirations, His loving actions, washing us and the world clean, opening the way to a new day. We can relax and accept the peace that is always ours, in both sunshine and in storms.

fillingup

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6)

We all can have days when we feel empty. There may be a loss of energy or of hope or of comfort. We may not feel we understand enough or have enough confidence or wisdom to be helpful to others or to ourselves.

But Jesus gives us promises in his beatitudes. He reminds us in this verse that it isn’t about being humanly perfect, having great intelligence, or having always lived a perfect life. Our very awareness that we need God, that we seek the nutriment of what is good and right, is enriching. It is fulfillment.

We can recognize that this humble sense of spiritual seeking reveals a feast. As our hearts reach for more than what the eyes can see or what human opinions would tell us, we gain insights and inspiration. As we do our best to turn away from the limited, from the ego, we find God, the Life that provides for our needs, brings us peace, and causes us to naturally progress as well.

“I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.” (Psalms 69: 30)

We can rejoice in our holiday celebrations on this Thanksgiving Day. We can be grateful for the provision of good that we have—food, family, community. We can take a moment to step away from the daily grind of work and worry to pause, breathe, and remember our blessings.

And we can actively acknowledge their source. We can do more than be happy about a day off or a hearty meal. We can praise God for the abundance of His qualities of good that make all things possible and pleasing. We can be open about our thanks by singing our praises, aloud or in our full hearts, honoring God by recognizing His Fatherhood, Motherhood, Love.

Our thanksgiving magnifies Him. As we are grateful, more of God’s attributes are seen. There is more Love made known, expressed and felt. We see more of the vibrancy of God’s being in those around us, in the beauty of our experiences, in nature. We see more control and order and peacefulness.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and truly enjoy giving thanks! It is a song, a rejoicing, a powerful time of grace and goodness we can celebrate all year long.

“Yes, dear friends, we are already God’s children, right now, and we can’t even imagine what it is going to be like later on. But we do know this, that when he comes we will be like him, as a result of seeing him as he really is.” (I John 3: 2, the Living Bible)

We don’t have to wait for some glory moment to become children of God, or to regain some lost blessing. We are already and always and now the very offspring of the Almighty one. This is our heritage, and nothing will ever change this divine fact.

We can acknowledge this and open our thoughts and our hearts to even greater realizations. There is a rich understanding in store for us beyond our imaginations. We will come to see what it really means to be God’s children. As we progressively recognize more of God’s true nature, see the love, goodness, immortality that Jesus demonstrated, we will surely awake to our true selves.

For we are this Christly idea! We are the very evidence of God’s Life and Love. And while this may seem difficult to grasp now, it is the reality of our being. We can expect to see clearly our own identity, to know ourselves as God knows us—in all our beauty, purity, wisdom, and joy.
