Your very next thought can be a great game changer for you

But you are not in the flesh; you are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you.” (Romans 8: 9)

My brother sends me articles about nutrition and health via email just about every day. Eating well, and taking care of oneself, is something he is very passionate about.   Many of these articles speak about the fact that our physical bodies so often are suffering from inflammation. We may not even know it, but gone unchecked this inflammation soon affects us with sickness, decease and discomfort.

So, it made me think. What about our spirits? I think so often our spirits are suffering from an inflammation caused by fear and feelings of separateness from God. Certainly not a separateness on God’s part, but on ours. We too often go on auto-pilot and become lethargic and lackluster about our relationship with the flow of God’s perfect energy within and around us. We cut off this beautiful life affirming presence from fully blessing us. Left unchecked, this inflammation of our spirit soon causes our lives to spin out of control. When this happens we often wonder what went wrong and why. So, how do we treat this inflammation?

Life gets busy and there are a million and one things to do. Sometimes we stand in the middle of the room and spin around wondering which thing to do first and which direction to move. I know when I find myself in this state there is only one thing to do. Stop, be still, and take some time, even if it is only five minutes, two minutes, one minute, to do some mindfulness meditation and reboot. Just a few minutes will do the trick, but I also find that if I really allow myself the gift of even more time, my life seems even more blessed.

We can to treat this inflammation of our spirit by affirming the presence of God in our lives. Say some affirmations of Spirit God’s presence and power moving in your life. Say a prayer of gratitude and thanksgiving for even one small thing in your life. Take some deep breaths and know that you are breathing in rhythm with the pulse and vibration of Perfect Spirit right where you are. In this quiet time, ask Spirit God to reveal whatever is going on in your life that is causing you to feel worry, fear and exile from experiencing your true spiritual nature. When we connect with God circumstances and attitudes can begin to change.  Even when things are going well in our lives a simple, “thank you, God,” will remind us that God is working and moving in our lives and our connection is strong.

Preventative medicine keeps our bodies well and healthy. Keeping our connection, our prayer life, our worship time, our service for God going keeps our spirits strong. Your very next thought can be the great game changer for you as you live on the affirmative side of life abundant. When our spirit is healthy all of our life’s experience can fall into place in a beautiful and life affirming way.

Affirmation: “Recognizing God’s presence always right where I am my life flows with renewed peace, joy and possibility.”

Your Promise For An Abundant Tomorrow Begins With The Thoughts You Have Today

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

I will give them one heart, and put a new spirit within them. They shall be my people, and I will be their God. (Ezekiel 11:19-20)

Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”  (John 11: 40)

In John 11 we have a powerful story of Jesus raising his friend Lazarus from the dead and in the Hebrew Scriptures book of Ezekiel the prophet has an amazing vision of dry bones being revived to new life. Both of these stories give us examples of God’s abundant love for each and every one of us. We are reminded here that resurrection can change our life today through our ongoing relationship with Spirit/God. This wonderful Spirit is now and forever right where we are at every moment.

Spirit/God knows each of us intimately and loves us with an unconditional love that reaches out to bless to us this day and always. Our hope for experiencing this wonderful new life is found in our willingness to accept this love. Resurrection is our promise of God for our life today. Not on some unknown date at a later time if we do all the right things, live a life by some dogmatic doctrine created by humans, tic all the right boxes on some fictional book of life, but for our life as it is lived today, right now. God longs to bless us, to bless you. Just as you are and just as you are not. The spiritual journey that we are each walking is anointed at every moment, through our successes and through our failures. It is blessed even in our times of doubt when fear can overcome us and we have momentary feelings of being forsaken. This Resurrection Spirit of God is always with us to remind us we are never alone. It is there to remind us that it is always reaching out to bring us back to the truth of our citizenship in God’s kingdom found right here on earth.

God has given us with a powerful gift of free choice, one that will always produce for us the direction of our thinking and the direction of our belief in tomorrow. This gift of Spirit is continually available to us and when we make those decisions and choices that lead us to places we would rather not experience we can always make another choice. We can always choose again and again, each time allowing our awareness of Spirit to grow within us.   There is never any condemnation in God, but rather a gentle offering to us of an opportunity to begin again. At every moment we are being offered the gift, offered an opportunity to experience that loving shift in our recognition of Spirit’s presence that brings us back into seeing a new and better truth.

As you reach out to connect with Spirit/God know that Spirit/God is reaching out to connect with you. In this beautiful relationship we are changed, our surroundings are changed, our community is changed and our world can be changed. What may have seemed dormant and lost is revived to live again.

Affirmation: “Thank you Spirit/God for the resurrection Spirit and lives, moves, breaths and thrives with me today and always. Thank you for new choices, new opportunities and for new life.”

Your next positive thought can be a new beginning to changing your life

“I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”  (Matthew 28: 20)

It has been written that, “Wherever you are is the entry point.” What I like about this statement is that it affirms that we can always begin anew to strengthen our faith, start something new, or just feel that we are where we are meant to be.

Every day things are changing and every day we are at a new entry point. What we do with this new entry point, the decisions we make and the attitude we bring into this new NOW moment can be the difference between thriving, or crashing. This new entry point is the place from where our experience can build, and reveal to us the life that we wish to lead, filled with amazing possibility.

Feeling down, or hurtful? Today’s entry point can be a new beginning to feeling the healing power of God moving through our bodies and affairs. Feeling lost, or “tapped out?” Today’s entry point can be a new beginning to feeling the joy of new discovery and strength for what is next.

Our every positive thought is a new entry point in discovering more of how God works in our lives. It is a beginning to seeing our prayers being answered, our relationships being healed and our joy in living finding new blessings for which we can be grateful.

Celebrate your new beginnings today. New beginnings that are divinely blessed because of where you are at this very moment. Give thanks to God that new adventures and discoveries await you now and always.

Your entry point is blessed, and so is your continuing journey with each and every step you take, and each and every thought you have.

Affirmation: “Where I am is my new starting point. God is with me here and blesses my decisions. From this place I find the perfect guidance to move forward toward all that I wish to experience.”

The Power of Belief

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Jesus said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light.” (Mark 4: 21-22)

One of my favorites preachers to listen to, or even to read her sermons, is Barbara Brown Taylor. In a sermon I was reading recently she wrote, “We need to restore the power of belief.” And this really stayed with me. Our belief can be such a fragile thing. It can vary in degrees based on what we are experiencing at any given time. And yet, God calls us to continue to believe and to trust in Spirit’s wonderful power for change in our lives no matter what is going on for us.

Our power of belief is our willingness in having a courage that is built on a solid foundation of God. God’s light is eternal and always the same; I firmly believe that. We can diminish our experience of that light and our individual expression of that light, or we can even snuff it out completely. Often we do this because there are simply some things that are painful for us to see and experience. That is a very human thing to do and we mustn’t ever belittle or beat ourselves up when we do that. Some things are painful. Some things simply are uncomfortable and we don’t want to see them, so we pretend they just don’t exist. In the south we called that good ole “Southern Denial.” It’s a practice of pretending, but it bares no resemblance to the truth. I have always discovered in my own life that the more I need God the more God seems to show up. I love that. But I have also come to realize that I have to recognize and affirm that God is indeed present with me. My awareness of the power of God with me helps me to experience that power when and where I need it most. My awareness is also my prayer of thanksgiving to God for blessing me in ways that I may not yet understand, but I affirm that I will.

Our power of belief is the place that gives us courage to let loose God’s light within us and shine that light forward with a beam so bright that whatever it exposes we can know we have the ability to handle. Our belief is our trust in the power of God, right where we are at every moment, to walk with us through each step of life we take. When the road is smooth and flat and the going is easy, and when the road is rocky and has twists and turns that make us feel we are going in circles. Our trust in the presence of God to bless us abundantly can keep us going forward, knowing that the light gets brighter and the comfort and peace we desire will come.

Why can we handle it? Because God has not gone anywhere. God is still right here. God was with us then and God is with us now and God will be with us always. Make no mistake. To God that is not negotiable. That is a given. It is a fact and it is a truth beyond all truths. God loves you unconditionally and God loves to dance with you in the light of joy and peace.

Affirmation: “I know God is always with me at this and every moment. Recognizing God’s presence I see new and exciting possibility for myself and others. What a joyous experience it is.”

Release Your Fears and Change Your Life

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

You shall not make for yourself an idol whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” (Exodus 20: 4)

The Old Testament, or Hebrew Scriptures, is very plain in speaking out against idol worship, or making some imagine we create the object of our devotion. The creation of a Golden Calf in the desert created while Moses was away from his people on the mountaintop is the prime example given to us. But I would also submit that we often make images of other things, things that dwell in our thoughts that prevent us from experiencing fully the presence of Spirit/God in our lives.

For many of us a graven image that we believe is truth is feeling that we are separate from God. Feelings that God, once having created the world, and us, has now left us alone to fend for ourselves crowd out any chance we may have to experience the truth of our being. Images of defeat, lack, limitation and struggle can become so engrained within our minds that we get stuck in living out those images as if that is our purpose.

Perhaps the biggest image we carry around with us is fear. Our news reports, and the messages that many of our politicians promote, does nothing to alleviate our worries and concerns. These fears, added to ones we already carry around, and our thoughts and emotions of separateness from Spirit, can keep us in a constant state of turmoil. So much so that after a while those feelings of fear become our “new normal.”

Recognizing the presence of Spirit/God always right where we are at every moment can begin to help us move away from a “fear state” and into a “peace state.” Spirit/God never leaves us, is always right where we are at every moment and always as close as our very next thought. We are God’s beloved creation and God is always available to touch our lives in any way we need. Concerns for our present well-being and for our future will always be with us, but when we can turn our worries and fears over to Spirit/God we can relax into being about the business of living the fruitful, abundant lives we were created to live.

How do we do this? I would invite you to begin with prayer and meditation. List the things that cause you fear, name them, make them come to the forefront of your mind so that you can then, one at a time, turn them over to Spirit. Release them, every one of them, to Spirit. Know that in doing so the burden is lifted from your mind and that you are opening up a new space in your mind to receive peace, clarity, abundance, joy, happiness, renewed health and wellbeing. You deserve to experience the fullness of Spirit and it is your inherited birthright as a child of God to do so. Through our prayers, and our meditations, releasing our fears to God helps us change the vibration and energy of our thinking. It changes the energy of what we allow to become to focus of our lives. It changes the energy field of Spirit in and all around us that attracts to us those things we truly wish to experience in our lives, and to share with the world.

Let Spirit/God have your fears today. Start today. Each day connect with Spirit and renew that wonderful connection. In doing so, you will change your life.

May your relationship with the presence of Spirit/God truly allow you peace and prosperity this day and always.

Affirmation: “With a willingness to let go of what no longer serves me I place my trust in Spirit/God for exciting new possibilities.”

Ash Wednesday Meditation – The Journey Begins Today

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8)

Today, along with Jesus, we begin a journey, we begin a walk, we begin a pilgrimage forward. We begin an expedition toward new creation – For ourselves, and for our community.

And so as we travel – we pray.

We pray for guidance. We pray for eyes that see more clearly the world around us and the things of this world that need healing. We pray for ears that hear and understand the cries of pain and despair of others. We pray for hearts that are open to receive one another and to reach out to one another with the same unconditional love that our fellow traveler, the Christ, has so beautifully modeled for us.

And so as we travel, we seek to learn. To be teachable.

We journey forward in a community of spirit that leads us to where it is we are most needed. Most assuredly our journey will take us off the sure, and the steady road and lead us into places that may seem foreign and unknown to us. But as we follow the Christ we know we are forever led to just where it is we are needed to be at any given moment, to bring a light of renewed hope and possibility – to all God’s people for a brighter future. As we share our light with others we know they too share their light with us – and for this shared experience we are all stronger.

And so as we travel, we draw strength and courage through our shared community of peace.

We travel a terrain that is at times very familiar and it is one that we know well. We know each road, each scenic overlook, each hill and each valley and the journey is easy. But off in the distance we see those who are sick – and those who are hurting – and those who are refugees needing a sense of belonging – and so we take the perhaps unfamiliar path that we might minister to them with love and with justice and with a presence of hope, caring and grace.

And so as we travel, we humbly serve.

Whatever burdens we ourselves may be carrying we release and turn over to God, knowing that in doing so we receive forgiveness for our shortcomings and renewed strength that we might continue with courage and resolve.

And so as we travel, we trust and we remain faithful.

We pray – not for tasks for which we are already capable, we pray not for tasks that meet our current abilities – but we pray that in seeing and rising to meet a need we will be given all we require, as we require it – to make a difference in our fragmented world. We say “send me God” to that place you have already prepared – that together we might bring a spirit of reconciliation and justice – and kindness and affirmation – that all people will recognize the dignity and worth of each and everyone as your beautiful creation.

And so as we travel, we reconcile.

No longer do we classify by Jew, or Gentile, no longer is there “us” and “them,” no longer is there black and white or gay and straight, for in God we affirm all are anointed as precious.

Together we break down the walls of division and together we build bridges to understanding as we walk arm in arm in unity. Together we are stronger and together we bring a brighter light of justice into our world.

And so as we travel, we worship. We proclaim and we rejoice that our journey is blessed – and the song on our hearts – shouts continually of the glory of God.

Today is our starting point – This Ash Wednesday. Our journey through the season of Lent is a journey into renewal. A moment that changes the vibration and energy of the world because this is the moment that together we say, “yes, God, in you all things are indeed possible.”

What does the Lord require of us?

To walk toward Jerusalem with Jesus, to walk into Easter with a resurrection spirit that overcomes death and proclaims new life.

And so it is that we pray, so it is that we journey forward – and so it is that we begin today – in faith – to be changed.

Celebrate That You Are Spirit in Human Form

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.” (1 John 3:1)

We are each spiritual beings having a human experience. So often in our thinking we have that reversed. We think we are first and foremost human, physical bodies trying desperately to connect with some form of spiritual truth. When we realize that we are first spiritual beings our connection to God becomes not only more easily understood, but lived.

God loves us so much, cares for us so much, wants relationship with us so much, and God wants us to understand who we are. As children of God this beautiful spirit of truth and grace and unconditional love is the very core and essence of who we are. That is first, all else is built from that place.

So from being spiritual beings God has given us our humanness, our thinking minds and our ability for discernment. God has given us wonderful human experiences that can make our time on this planet the fulfillment of God’s kingdom here on earth.

But, as humans, we often experience physical things that can be overwhelming. Our bodies hurt, our hearts break, we go through dark places that seem endless and with seemingly no a passageway out. Psalm 23 says, “Though I walk through the darkest valley.” Whatever that valley may be for you, whatever that burden you carry, know that when you trust in the ever present Spirit in, around, and through you at every moment, that you are guided back into the light. Sometimes that journey seems slower than we would like, but stopping to give thanksgiving to Spirit that you are not alone and that you are being guided to the realization and recognition of God’s Perfect Light, will help you in moving forward. You have not failed, you can never fail. God is there. When we have moments of feeling separate from Spirit we mustn’t be down on ourselves, but approach that moment as yet another opportunity to return our awareness to God’s loving embrace. I know I often have thousands of opportunities to return my awareness to God each and every day. Thousands of beautiful opportunities to meet God again and to continue onward.

After sorrow and pain there is always resurrection. Our natural place is in the Light of Spirit’s Truth. Know that in your humanness you are a spiritual being and your human experience will always lead you back to that “Spirit/God” place at your very core. Decide today that you will make the decision to accept the truth of who you really are in spirit.

We are each children of God. Know this for yourself, and know this for others. This is indeed how we can experience the kingdom of heaven right here on earth.

Affirmation: “I am forever standing in the presence of God on Holy Ground.”

It Is Well With My Soul

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11: 29

One evening I was with the Young Adults group at the church and our Minister for High School students was leading our discussion. He began that evening with something I shall never forget. He started out by asking each of us to do some inner examination and then he asked, “What is going on in your soul today?”

This really struck me as I thought about it. With all of the things that we face and encounter in our daily lives our soul is often forgotten as we seek to find peace in our lives and make sense out of all that is happening around us.   Looking within to where we may have stored up our hurts and disappointments, and especially our fears, is important as we seek to release those emotions into the light of God’s unconditional love. Turning within to meet the ever-present Spirit, always as close as our very next thought, helps us to feel we have not been forsaken or forgotten. Our way back to living fruitful and inspiring lives can begin again when we acknowledge that God is bigger and more powerful than any challenge, fear, struggle or hurt we may be experiencing. When we can release those emotions to Spirit/God, being open to how God will respond to our willingness to let go, we can experience the Divine Presence in a deeper and more life affirming way.

One of my favorite hymns of the church is “It Is Well With My Soul.” I listen to this often to uplift myself above the concerns of my day and to remind myself that even in my distress my soul is well because that is where Spirit/God lives within me. My awareness that my heartbeat, in rhythm with the heartbeat of Spirit, and my every breath, alongside the breath of God, restores my vision, renews my energy and reminds me that I can, with assurance, place another foot forward.   This is the assurance of Spirit that the challenges of life cannot weigh me down. Each next moment, spent in the truth of Spirit/God’s uplifting presence, is a restorative moment because I have placed into that moment the bright Light of Divine Spirit.

Taking a few moments to slowly breathe, mindfully with Spirit, can move our faith forward into our living lives of new and exciting possibility.

It is well with my soul because all is well in the presence of Spirit/God.

The beautiful lyric to the hymn “It Is Well With My Soul” is poetry of hope and a prayer to how much we are loved unconditionally by God.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll,

Whatever my lot, God has taught me to say, it is well, it is well.

It is well with my soul.

It is well, it is well,

It is well with my soul.

 

May God haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,

The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well with my soul.

It is well, it is well,

It is well with my soul.

 Affirmation: My soul rests in the Divine presence. It is the light that guides my path forward this day and always. In living this truth I share my light with others as they share their light with me.”

Experiencing A Wondrous New Thing

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” (Isaiah 42:19)

To me one of the most beautiful experiences in my spiritual journey is the time that I spend in meditation. It is a time in which I set the stage within myself to experiencing new and exciting revelations of all that Spirit/God is doing in my life and in the world. It is in meditation that we pour a foundation onto which we can build castles souring into the sky that are filled with perfect Spirit/God.

I offer the following prayer as a prelude for your quiet time. Be open to all that God is creating in your life and be prepared to be in awe.

Prayer: Wondrous God, I am here today, in our time together, that I may come into a greater awareness of your divine presence, always with me. As I seek you and turn within, centering myself, and opening my heart and mind to new truths and revelations of your power and presence, I seek you in what has perhaps before been a hidden place. Hidden not because you would withhold anything from me, but hidden because I have closed myself off from you. Hidden because I have been far too complacent in my life and hidden because I have lived my life with a belief that the way things have always been is the way they must always be. No more.   I come today with a new intention. An intention to be open to you, to be open to new thoughts, ideas, revelations of your Spirit, and new insights into how you work in, and through, and as my life in each and every moment. I know that I need only turn to an awareness of my breathing, in and out, to be reminded of just how close you are to me. For these things I experience today I give you thanksgiving. I know you meet me always right where I am at every moment.

And so it is, and so I let it be. Amen.

 Affirmation: “God is creating all things new. I rest in the wonder of this new creation and see amazing new possibility in my life, the lives of those I love, and our world.”

Walking Into The Loving Embrace of God

Tags

 “The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.” (Isaiah 58: 11)

Our spiritual daily walk can be very challenging. From the highs we experience in life, when it seems everything is going great, and we fly without effort, we often then have times when we stumble and fall down. Either because of circumstances thrust upon us, or because in a moment of not thinking too clearly we have made a bad decision, sometimes our life can be overwhelmingly difficult. I have discovered, as I suppose you have as well, that when things are going great it is easy to see the presence of God working in our lives. In those times it is easy to pray and give God thanksgiving for all that we are experiencing. But, when the difficult times come upon us God can seem very far away. Sometimes we can even question if God still loves us, or cares about us, or will ever lift us up again. We fall down sometimes. What we do when we fall down is so very important.

I love to watch a baby learn to walk. It is so exciting to see the accomplishment on their little faces. They stand up and the look of happiness on their little faces is beautiful. They take a wobbly step forward, smiling, then, they usually fall down. Boom. From what started out as such a victory suddenly fell apart and they are back to where they started. But what do they do? They get up again. They try again. They don’t stop and decide their effort is in vain, they don’t decide that walking is for “other people” and not them. That others are blessed in life with this gift and not them. I have never seen a baby who decided getting back up and trying to take another step was too difficult and not worth the effort. They get up again and take another step. The journey is too important and the reward is too great not to proceed. Maybe they will fall again, but that doesn’t matter. With each step, with each effort, it gets better. With each effort they show themselves that they can do it. Usually there is a loving adult steps away encouraging the baby on. Holding out their arms saying, “come on, you can do it. Take another step. Come here.” And guess what. The baby does. The baby keeps its eyes on the eyes of the adult and soon the baby walks into the loving arms of the waiting adult.

That little baby is each and every one of us today – and that waiting adult is God. God is present with us, encouraging us on in life. Take another step – you can do it. You can learn how to walk. You can move from where you are to where you would like to be if you keep your eyes on the unconditional love of Spirit/God that wants you to succeed, thrive and soar to new heights. Your success is God’s success and your success, navigating through the challenges of life, proclaims to the world that those who believe in God’s possibility are never defeated.

Keep your eyes on the gaze of Spirit today. The borders that would try to keep you down will become your wings of victory.

Affirmation: “Keeping my eyes on the gaze of God my journey of life is rich, abundant and filled with new and exciting possibility.”
