Spirit’s divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness.”  (2 Peter 1: 3)

Every morning on my way to work I pass through the intersection of Coldwater Canyon and Ventura Blvd. There has been a coffee shop on that corner for as long as I can remember. In front of the coffee shop, on a high pillar, was a sign for the coffee shop that went around on a very slow revolve. What I have loved about this sign was that there was always a long line of birds resting a top this sign in what looked like total contentment. They had a place to rest and they were happy.

The coffee shop closed a few months ago and the sign no longer revolves. And guess what, not a bird has come back to rest on that tall sign and view the magnificent vista all around them.

This has made me think about a very metaphysical truth. Activity, positive energy and an inviting atmosphere forever draw people, opportunities, and apparently birds, into that welcoming environment. As if being attracted to light from the darkness, this vibration of pulsating life lures more of the same. Positive energy always draws more positive energy to itself.

This is very true for each and every one of us as we go about our lives. Our connection with Spirit and our living that Spirit in and through us with joy, happiness, hope, and an attitude of new possibility always being present, naturally will attract to us the positive things we wish to experience. This sets our intention for what we choose to experience, what we choose to recognize around us, and what we declare to be our demonstration of Spirit/God actively working in, through and as our lives.

This is why the saying, “change your thinking, change your life” is so true and powerful. This is why people who live their lives with a “glass is half-full” outlook have immeasurably different lives than those who are negative and see only the “glass as half-empty.”

We can take our scripture as our truth; for Spirit’s divine power has indeed given us everything we need for life and godliness through our Lord the Christ.

Affirmation: “I see miracles in my life because I believe in and expect miracles. I have this on good authority, for God has demonstrated this truth to me over and over again.”
