FRIDAY'S AFFIRMATION - FULFILLMENT

I find fulfillment in the pleasures of everyday life.

My thirst for satisfaction may create chaos in my life. I may change jobs, relationships, and homes. Still, I may be restless. Then I refocus my desires inward and discover what I am looking for is already here. Outer circumstances do not bring me peace and satisfaction. Love does.

I retrain my mind to find fulfillment within. A spiritual wellspring of contentment and delight awaits me. I find enjoyment in little things like a blue sky, the smell of the earth, and small kindnesses extended to me by others. Most of all, I appreciate the real pleasure of living my life exactly as it is. I live in a constant state of gratitude and all is well with me and the world.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.—Romans 15:13

Please say some prayers for the firefighters, volunteer firefighters, families and all that are affected by these fires. My oldest brother is dangerously close to the fires in Tonasket, WA.
I have a LOT of family in WA, but he is the closest to the actual fires.

John 7:37-38 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

An estimated 500,000 tons of water go over Niagara Falls every minute. On March 29, 1948, the falls suddenly stopped. Those who lived near enough heard the overwhelming silence, and immediately they thought it was a sign – the end of the world had come! However, after thirty hours had passed – the flow of water resumed.

What happened? Heavy winds had set the ice fields of Lake Erie in motion and tons of ice had jammed the Niagara River entrance near Buffalo. The ice blocked the flow of water until finally, there was a shift in the blockage and the river began flowing again.

The river had stopped flowing because of ice.

If we really want the flow of God’s love, peace, joy, and anointing in our lives – we cannot allow our hearts to become like ice. If we do, His life-giving current will stop.

Let the Lord search your heart for those areas where the ice has built up and needs to thaw out. He will show you where they are if you ask. Our hearts should be burning for Him, so let the river flow.... once again.


TODAY'S AFFIRMATION - FORGIVE

I cleanse my heart with healing prayer.

Ancient wisdom states that a full vessel has no room for more. This is also true of my consciousness. When I hold on to troubles and hurts, I am a full vessel. This crowding of my heart makes it difficult for more abundance to flow into my life.

I create space by pouring out all unforgiveness. I journal, pray, and talk with people I trust. I let go of resentments and fear and cleanse my heart with prayer. Now I am a pure, clean vessel with space to receive more love and blessings. I notice the grace of God filling me up. I am healed.

I live from a new consciousness and I am happy. I share my joy with my loved ones and those I see throughout my day. I empty my vessel regularly and live abundantly.

Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone.—Mark 11:25

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.

“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.

17:20-26 - "I am not praying only for these men but for all those who will believe in me through their message, that they may all be one. Just as you, Father, live in me and I live in you, I am asking that they may live in us, that the world may believe that you did send me. I have given them the honour that you gave me, that they may be one, as we are one - I in them and you in me, that they may grow complete into one, so that the world may realise that you sent me and have loved them as you loved me. Father, I want those whom you have given me to be with me where I am; I want them to see that glory which you have made mine - for you loved me before the world began. Father of goodness and truth, the world has not known you, but I have known you and these men now know that you have sent me. I have made your self known to them and I will continue to do so that the love which you have had for me may be in their hearts - and that I may be there also.

DAILY WORD - LEARNING

An open mind and humble heart help me grow and learn.

Learning plays a vital role in my spiritual development. I consciously approach my growth as a novice student. This cultivates important spiritual qualities such as open-mindedness and humility. I follow this discipline whether I am new to the spiritual path or have journeyed for years.

I view even the most challenging situations as gifts in the form of important life lessons. Every person and circumstance teaches me something invaluable about the nature of Spirit and of my own soul.

Studying worldly matters can be fun and help with daily living. Still, nothing fulfills me like growing in spiritual wisdom. As I gain knowledge and skills, I joyfully express my divine nature.

Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction.—Proverbs 24:32

Isaiah 55:8-11

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine
9
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
10
“The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
11
It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
