There is a wonderful old proverb that says, “The doctor dresses the wound and God heals it.” The God who fashioned our bodies, created us; our organs, our cells and all that we are, is also the God who maintains and sustains us.
What are we thinking and believing today about the power of God?
We should daily affirm the presence of God; we should daily visualize God moving in our lives in ways that bring us peace, harmony and joy. We should daily affirm that for which we are grateful and refrain from continually nursing, rehearsing and broadcasting to others our pains and hurts.
Begin to know that God is healing all aspects of your body as the ancient proverb says. Know that those things we dwell upon multiply, so ask, what would we like to see multiplied in our life? Instead of affirming what we don’t wish to experience, perhaps we need to take another tack. Affirm those things we do wish to experience and allow those things to become the new expression of all that we are. We can dress the wounds of our life by affirming our belief in a loving, powerful, giving God, and we can leave the healing part up to the one who has continually showed us that all things are indeed possible.
“The Christ is the reflection of God’s very being, and he sustains all things by his powerful word.” (Hebrews 1: 3)
Affirmation: “I see a new reflection before me. It is the reflection of the Christ moving in new and exciting ways that heal all aspects of my life.”

We live our lives one thought at a time. Let each of those thoughts really count for something wonderful.
Be prepared to change your thinking and change your life. Please join us each Sunday at 5:30 PM in our Social Hall at First Christian Church, North Hollywood, CA for our Contemporary Celebration and Praise service. Come as you are and enjoy an hour of great music from our wonderful band and singers, inspiring messages and good fellowship. Those things in life that you have been seeking have also been seeking you. Now is a good time to receive them. We will lift one another to live exciting, abundant new lives of possibility and purpose.
Also, join me on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 PM for an hour of guided and silent meditation, reflection, affirmation and prayer. As always, we will share communion together. Everyone is welcome.
