“Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about.” (Philippians 4: 8, the Living Bible)

The human mind can lead us into a minefield or into a field of flowers. We each have a choice whether to recognize, claim, and agree with God’s qualities and ideas or to focus on what opposes Him—evil, unkindness, fear, hatred, lack, envy, anger.

The choice is truly between filling our thoughts with what is true or being a mental pack rat for lies. When we dwell on the good, the hopeful, the healing, we have a clear and clean consciousness. It is bright, open, ready. We are generous because we know we have an abundance of what matters and what is saving and uplifting for all.

It takes a discipline at times to replace the dark thoughts with light ones. But even a single pure and lovely thought can brighten our minds and open our hearts to more of what God would have us see and know—the promise, the renewal, the Love that is with us.

We can dwell on good things, small or great. We can choose not to magnify the flaws of others but to cherish the good in one another and also in ourselves. And we can praise God as we see the impact these sweeter thoughts can make in our experience.

“…turn your attention and seek the Eternal One while it is still possible; call on Him while He is nearby. Let those who are busy plotting violence and doing wrong stop right now, turn, and do right. Let them turn back to the Eternal so they can experience His compassion.” (Isaiah 55: 6-7, the Voice Translation)

We can all stop what we are doing and redirect our attention. We can willingly and joyfully look away from the temptation to fear, to argue, to doubt and shout. No matter where we seem to be on our personal path, one timely turn toward the Eternal One can change everything for the better.

God is always nearby. It is our own thoughts and actions that would seem to distance us from Him. Yet truly we are only closing our eyes to that Love, that peace, that active grace that is steadfastly at hand. God’s compassion is as infinite as He is. And this verse reminds us that no matter where we seem to be or even how far we’ve strayed from goodness, God is calling us back to His care, His rightness, our true being.

It is a turn, and a return, to ourselves. We can heed this demand and direct our attention to God, to Truth, and away from limitation, shame, worry, anger, and burden. We all have the right and ability to experience God’s nearness, His healing kindness, and to gratefully rejoice today!

petals

“Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear.” (Science and Health, page 506)

Gathering, unfolding, opening. These actions are loving, progressive, purposeful. They describe a conscious collecting, organizing, and revealing. They contribute harmoniously and meaningfully to a divine purpose appearing in human affairs.

Let’s remember that we don’t have to take a bunch of confused or uncertain thoughts and aspirations and make them work. We don’t need to pull our ideas up out of their seeds and make them into a flower. God, Spirit does all this. Inspiration dawns from God, in a timely way. The means and methods become clear and natural. Each right step of progress and fulfillment blooms forth, not by human will, but by willingness.

Our plans and projections can get us hung up. We can certainly nurture our hopes and dreams, but we can release the need to be in charge of them, to get out ahead of God Who knows what is right, how to do it, and when. We can trust that seed that God gave us, let go of the ego that feels responsible and/or incapable, and allow God’s perfect arrangement of things to blossom timely and beautifully.

starsatnight

“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.” (Isaiah 40: 26, New International Version)

Looking up at the sky and at the stars can certainly bring us a sense of infinitude, of the great immensity of the cosmos. When we gaze and reflect, we may feel small, but likely we also find ourselves experiencing awe and appreciating beauty.

God’s handiwork is certainly on display. The glory and boundlessness of the skies are beyond what men could conceive or create or control. Each object has a place in God’s creation, and each is known by Him, called by name, designed to express His purpose, harmony, and artistry.

And God, Spirit, sustains His universe. His Mind holds each idea in its right place, with care and strength. Just so, we are each known by our name, by our true nature. We were brought into being with deliberate attention to what God would have expressed as only we can do. God never loses us, never allows us to wander away from what and who we truly are.

You are a brilliant celestial in God’s masterpiece, and you can shine forth knowing you are safe, seen, and loved.

rooted tree

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence. He is like a tree planted along a riverbank, with its roots reaching deep into the water—a tree not bothered by the heat nor worried by long months of drought. Its leaves stay green, and it goes right on producing all its luscious fruit.” (Jeremiah 17: 7-8, the Living Bible)

We may not feel like the strong and flourishing tree described here. It may seem that we are saplings, small and vulnerable, not fully rooted, swaying precariously in the winds of fate and fear.

But we can trust God, the One Who planted us and gave us life and purpose, to give us the strength to grow and prosper. As we recognize that we are not alone, not reliant on the whims of men or of time or of randomness, we can experience a true feeling of soundness, safety, and serenity.

God’s control is a constant. There is never a drought of divine Love. Truth never scorches or depletes. God’s goodness is always balanced, progressive, kind. It restores, replenishes, strengthens, and assures.

We can feel true hope and confidence by knowing that our roots are always in God. He is our Source, holding us firmly and faithfully every day, and we are the living expression of His prosperous and beautiful Life.

psalm46_10-overlook_plain

“Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.” (Psalms 46: 10, the Passion Translation)

It isn’t about fighting. It’s about surrendering. When we feel like the challenges are too large or the world or time is moving too fast, we have a recourse. We have a solution that doesn’t add to the confusion and fear or exhaust us or our resources.

We can release all that in a silent pause. We can give ourselves permission to let the worries go, to relinquish our hold on what feels like our justifiable doubt, and to feel the peace that brings.

This isn’t doing nothing or ignoring issues. It is actively praising God, trusting good. It is letting go of ego and allowing the intelligence, wisdom, control of the divine to show us what is really true, and to reveal a way of healing, progress, and satisfaction.

God is mighty, but He can be realized in the quiet. A humble moment of surrender gives us over to the winning side, God’s side, where anguish is conquered naturally and necessarily by Love.

“I pray that God will help you overflow with hope in him through the Holy Spirit’s power within you.” (Romans 15: 13, the Living Bible)

This prayer is so sweet and assuring. It shares God’s promise that grace is ready to attend us, uplift us, give us sustenance and contentment.

Sometimes it feels hard to be hopeful, let alone expectant of good. But we can trust God Himself to help us to feel that hope and the peace it brings. The Holy Spirit, that divine activity in human hearts and minds, is at the ready to save us. That gentle yet mighty power is truly with us already, as near as our next breath.

As we turn to God, as we accept the tender message of this prayer, a natural expectation rises up within us. Our outlook is lifted from the doubt and darkness and we begin to see that the dawn is ready to break. God’s kindness reveals that all will be well. That simple promise overflows with healing Love and with a renewed sense of Life, a brighter day for us and for all.

“The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd. I always have more than enough. He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss. That’s where he restores and revives my life.” (Psalms 23: 1-3, the Passion Translation)

This Psalm gives us such a gentle yet powerful image of sustenance, security, and contentment. It assures us that all is well now and that our tomorrow is also taken care of. We can expect each day to have what we need and more. We can anticipate a cleansing of yesterday’s challenges and a renewal for a bright new day.

This may sound too good to be true when life seems to be tough and our circumstances far from blissful or luxurious. But our awareness of God, the Spirit that provides, guides, and loves, brings this sweet and sustaining Life to us where we are. As we look beyond the material and limiting, let go of the ego and its need to control, we can hear God’s voice, feel that companionship, and discover the way to peace.

Let’s willingly release ourselves to this gorgeous, comforting promise. Let’s know that we deserve a beautiful place to rest, an oasis from cares and worries. We are worthy and ready for the restoring and generous grace of divine Love to naturally refresh us and energize us today and every day.

freedom (1)

“…in any heart where the Spirit of the Lord is present, there is liberty.” (II Corinthians 3: 17, the Voice Translation)

The presence of God is freedom. Where God dwells, His own qualities live, and He is peace, power, beauty, capacity, joy. The nature of God is all good, and His Spirit makes this goodness known.

We can find it in our hearts. We can find God where Love lives, in that place that God Himself has created and which He actively fills. As we look to that natural love within us, that gentle yet strong knowing and being, we feel free. We have become conscious of the true law of Life, of God’s divine purpose, one that invites us always to praise and rejoice and to live fully and gratefully.

There is no heart that is not ready to feel this liberating Spirit. Any heart can know this reality of life, the freedom that comes of God’s own Love for us. No one is too far gone, too ignorant, too afraid, too sinful, to discover God’s presence in his heart and to feel it, claim it, and share it naturally and generously!

running-with-sunshine-tran-van-truong

“If you want a happy, good life, keep control of your tongue, and guard your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Try to live in peace even if you must run after it to catch and hold it!” (I Peter 3: 10-11, The Living Bible)

We all certainly want a happy, good life! There may be certain things around us that we can’t control, but we can control the way we approach things. We can take charge of our actions as well as our perspective.

This alertness can do much for us. Our joy can be found as we stay acquainted with what is good and right, as we stay honest and loving. When we express kindness and seek peace with others, we are thinking and behaving like our true selves. And this natural state of being brings comfort and serenity within.

When we stop telling lies, stop giving voice to the devil’s words, and stop taking into our thought the negative and the nasty, we are dwelling in God’s Truth. And His Truth is Love. It is Life triumphant and blessed. Human judgment and opinion, repeating evil or buying into it, isn’t doing us or our world any favors. Instead, let’s turn away from the allure of gossip and cynicism, and let’s instead run after peace like the lifeline that it is!
