I am at peace!

Day Seven: The Christ

Sat Dec 24

"Christ, as the spiritual or true idea of God, comes now as of old, preaching the gospel to the poor, healing the sick, and casting out evils. Is it error which is restoring an essential element of Christianity, — namely, apostolic, divine healing? No; it is the Science of Christianity which is restoring it, and is the light shining in darkness, which the darkness comprehends not."

It is the day that the Christ consciousness is acknowledged and welcomed.

  "He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it."

I am grateful for the throne.

This gratitude / no complaint opportunity, is a beautiful journey!
Yes, there are ups and downs, some obstacles here and there, but it is all about the journey.

Wed Dec 7

Since my husband quit his full time job for a part time one and he is slowly moving into practice, a lot of questions arise, and my thought jumps into worries once in a while, but this week's lesson is a great reminder!
There is a law of promise in my heart, the promise of perpetual loving care.
My God is my Preserver.

This Golden text has been written for me!
Every time my thought goes to that "I am overwhelmed" place, the Bible lesson kicks in saying, "oh, it is OK, one step at a time, things will work out, they have always worked out, remember WHO is in charge..."
I am grateful for the Bible lesson.

Day Two: Forgiveness

Monday, Dec 5

I have been having some trouble with my thoughts in and out yesterday, some fear, some anger, and something in between. What happened on Saturday troubled me.
When I ask Mark to help me, he said "you need to work with Forgiveness"...
So today, I am focusing on forgiveness.
As I am contemplating forgiveness, I understand it as letting go of self, quit separation, abandon position, ignore reasoning, allow oneness in thought.
My forgiveness, becomes appreciation for the opportunity to salute an opponent in my consciousness and feel at peace.
I am grateful for that peace.

Day One: Higher Views

Sun Dec 4

 I am down the ladder again!
When my first appointment didn't show up, I was determined not to complaint...
And I didn't.
But when this other guy came in and started bulling me,
I went  %8#/:*)&@$!&#* in my head... Yes, I mumbled a bunch of complaints!
I felt threatened and uncomfortable, but I tried to get over it.
Before going to bed, I prayed and I wrote more gratitude in my journal.
Nevertheless, I woke up during the night full of fear and wanting to resign the project.
After a couple of hours of agony, I had to pray again. What clearly came to me, was to go up higher.
My prayer said, it wasn't about the story. My story. It was about GOD.
I dropped my problem right then, and I contemplated how big my God is.
The higher views gave me a sense of peace that put me back to sleep.
I am grateful for the higher views!

Day Six: Sufficiency

Saturday Dec 3rd

I am focusing to know that there is sufficiency of all good in my life and not agonize about the how's of the future.
The Bible lesson this week talks about Jesus' miracle with the loaves and fishes, -one of my favorite stories. And of course, he thanked God, BEFORE the actual manifestation of supply. Not even that, there were leftovers too!
"Creation is ever appearing, and must ever continue to appear from the nature of its inexhaustible source".SH 507:28-6
I am grateful for having sufficiency in all things!

Day Five: God Smiles...

Friday Dec 2

My day feels full of prayer and watchfulness. I feel a change.
I had to stop during the day a couple of times and think what I am grateful for.
I caught myself feeling content for no reason...
I still need to focus on humility. My heart thirsts for the gifts that come out of it.
Humility's impact, makes my God smile!
I am grateful!

Day Four: Humility

Thurs Dec 1st

I have learned a good lesson yesterday, and I feel I need to bring my focus on humility.
When I think "humility", a thought of gentleness comes to mind, acceptance, willingness, meekness, simplicity, selflessness.
The "being at ease" rises, and Christ takes over...
I have a lot to learn, I am grateful for learning.
