Daily Word - Forgive

I plant seeds of love in my heart.


The seeds I plant in my garden grow into flowers or vegetables according to the divine pattern within them. Reflecting on this idea in times of prayer, I realize that the seeds I sow within my mind and heart also produce according to their kind.

So I plant seeds of love and kindness, compassion and forgiveness. I speak words of love—silently or aloud—to establish peace within and around me. I nurture the seeds of love I have sown, and they produce fruitful results in my interactions with others. This love helps me to forgive.

With love in my heart, I look beyond the seeming negative experience to see the love and divinity that exists in all. My seeds of love yield a harvest of loving experiences.


If we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.—1 John 4:12

Daily Word - Creativity

I am an expression of the unlimited creativity of God.


Everything about me is unique—from my fingerprints and genes to the way I smile and laugh. God has created an infinite variety of plants, animals, insects, and humans. Not only am I a unique creation, I am a channel for that divine creative energy.

In the beginning of any creative process there is a void. When I turn within in prayer, I prepare the way to fill that void as I receive new ideas, perspectives, and insights.

No matter how many times I go through the creative process, moving from vague thoughts to focused ideas, from nothingness to abundance, from anxiety to creativity—it is a miracle each time. There is no end to God’s creativity expressing through me.


Remember the wonderful works he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered.—Psalm 105:5

Daily Word - Renewal

I am radiantly and vitally alive.


Water poured on a thirsty plant will cause it to perk up again. Rain falling on a parched field soaks to the roots and soon the field is lush again.

When I feel depleted, I acknowledge the indwelling Holy Spirit that flows through me, restoring and revitalizing. Quiet moments of prayer open paths through which this healing Spirit can reach the depths of my soul. I relax in the healing presence of the Holy Spirit and feel the beginnings of wholeness.

That same Spirit dwells within my family and friends as healing energy and renewal. I hold each one in prayerful thought and visualize health, healing, and wholeness.

I give thanks for the healing energy that renews and regenerates. I am vitally alive.


Then he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain and the earth yielded its harvest.—James 5:18

Today's Word - Juggle Balls

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life. How?

Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
 
Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
 
Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
 
Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of your life.
 
Don’t give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
 
Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us each together.
 
Don’t be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
 
Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
 
Don’t run through life so fast that you forget not only where you’ve been, but also where you are going.
 
Don’t forget that a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
 
Don’t be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.
 
Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.

Daily Word - Protected

I am safe and secure in the love of God.


Divine love is continually unfolding my highest good because I am precious to God. Such acceptance keeps me motivated. The unknown may cast a shadow on what is before me, but I do not shrink before what has yet to be illumined. The eternal light of God will move the shadows to reveal the truth of any situation.
Right where I am at this moment or at any time in the future, I am on holy ground. I am God-life in expression.

Whether I am traveling in inclement weather or having a medical procedure, I am safe and secure. Taking a test or being tested by circumstances, I am alert and divinely guided.

The love of God blesses me at all times and in all places. I am safe and secure.


Let your steadfast love and your faithfulness keep me safe forever.—Psalm 40:11

Daily Word - Appreciate

Thank You, God, for life.


Taking time to consider my family and friends reminds me how blessed I am. As I open my heart and let my appreciation express in word and deed, I feel joyful. Through the grace of God, these thoughtful, caring people support me. They believe in me. They love me. I am grateful for every act of kindness and consideration I receive.

My appreciation reaches far and wide when I consider all the behind-the-scenes people who make my everyday life safe and comfortable. I show appreciation in numerous ways: a call, card, or an act of kindness. Perhaps the highest form of appreciation I can give is to hold others in prayer. I do, also praying that I will give back in meaningful ways that show my appreciation for all that God has created.


I give thanks to my God always for you.—1 Corinthians 1:4

Daily Word - Peace

I express divine love and understanding to all.


When I tune in to news of terrorism, racism, climate change, and more, I may wonder if there will ever be peace in our world. Yet I am also familiar with the deep peace found in the presence of Spirit. Peace begins with each one of us, and I have the power to access it at any time. Through divine peace, I learn to express divine love and understanding to all.

I take a moment now to turn off the news and breathe into the peaceful presence within. Here I find a sense of hope for the world. Engaging the power of imagination, I envision humanity acting with respect for all life. I glimpse the realized potential of a world at peace. I know we can and will achieve peace—one breath at a time.


Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”—John 20:21
