Spirit-filled Life

My mind is open and receptive to experiencing the Presence of Spirit in all that I do and in all things that concern me. I know that my spirit of confidence and self assurance is anchored by my trust and faith in Divine Guidance. I accept and identify with the Living Spirit within me and this acceptance empowers me to make the right decisions and choices that move me forward in an ever greater experience of prosperity, joy and success. I know that the Divine Plan for me today is to experience more of God, the Good ... and I am open and receptive to God's willingness to work with me, as me, and through me, so my mind is open to new ideas and a renewal of enthusiasm and expectancy of prosperity and success unfolding in my life now. I accept all the Good that is mine and in gratitude for this Good, I give of this Good generously with the conviction that the more I give the more I receive. I do not set any limits in my mind on the measure of Good that I accept for me and for all others as I witness the marvelous results of living a Spirit-filled life, now. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

Open to a Greater Good

As I open my mind to greater opportunities and prosperity, I keep my mind focused on God, the Good. I know that the Spirit is within me and is within the idea and desires for Good that come to me. I know that "it is the Father's good pleasure to give to me" ... and in this realization, I am never distracted from the Good that is mine. I know and understand that Good alone is real, and in this awareness of the All-Good, I accept that whatever I am experiencing today is guiding and directing me to a greater and greater Good. I accept that my mind is an instrument of Divine Mind and I align my thoughts with Its nature, feeling this Presence as a living reality in my every experience. My spirit is rich in joy, happiness, harmony, and peace with all things that concern me. I know that everything changes except for the deep faith and confidence within me that God is with me, in me, and for me, at all times and in all things. I accept the greatest Good that God has for me now and I fulfill my role in this Divine demonstration by giving and sharing the Good that is mine, joyfully and gratefully. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

I Live Fully Today

I know that every negative condition of the past is swept aside.
I refuse to see it or to think about it.
Yesterday is no longer here; tomorrow has not yet arrived.
Today is God's day.
God's day is my day.
Today, bright with hope and filled with promise, is mine.
I am alive, awake, and aware - today.
........... written by Dr. Ernest Holmes
