Love is the natural expression of who I am.




The more I learn about the power of the heart, the more I see that love is the natural expression of who I am. I tap in to my heart energy and shift my focus. I bring my attention from my busy day to the wellspring of love within. I drop my awareness from my head to my heart and relax into God’s love. The energy of the heart is powerful enough to foster peace and connection even from a distance.

In my prayer times, I remember that God’s love radiates outward, touching people around the globe. Throughout the day, I silently bless each person I see and every person who comes to my mind.

Following Jesus’ teaching to love one another, I radiate love and kindness to all. I know God’s love is at work in the world.



Let all that you do be done in love.—1 Corinthians 16:14

DAILY WORD - INNER PEACE

The breath of Spirit flows through me. I breathe in peace.




Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote “closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.” I take a deep breath now remembering Spirit is as close as the very breath that is breathing in me.

As I go about my day, I feel peace in knowing God is with me every step of the way. Every act of service, every task I complete is a cocreation with Spirit.

As I realize these truths, I cease all striving and feel a deep inner peace. I am humbled by the sacredness of my existence as a vehicle for God to be known in the world. I am at peace in the presence of Spirit, with each breath and every move.




Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.—John 15:4

DAILY WORD - HEALING

I am created from a divine pattern of perfect life and wholeness.




The true nature of every being is divine. As a child of God, I have inherited the health, wisdom, love, strength, peace, and abundance of God. If I am experiencing a health challenge, this makes me no less divine. I am still whole. I take a moment to acknowledge the concern I am feeling. I remember that this situation, like all that arises, will pass.

An athlete learning a new skill practices many times before becoming proficient. Affirming wholeness of body, mind, and affairs, I boldly claim my birthright: I am created from a divine pattern of perfect life and wholeness.

I repeat this affirmation until it becomes ingrained in my being, more than just something I think or affirm. I live my Truth—perfect life and wholeness—as God’s spirit moves through me as vitality and wisdom.




Let the little children come to me.—Mark 10:14


DAILY THOUGHT - POWERFUL WORDS

I bless the world through my thoughts, words, and actions.




Being a blessing to others means bestowing goodness on others. My relationship with the Divine is not only a blessing in my own life but also supports me in being a blessing to the world.

As a child of God, I am made in the image and likeness of God. I have access to the source of all peace, joy, wisdom, prosperity, and well-being. Tuning in to Spirit, I access divine ideas that are the building blocks of my life. These building blocks contribute to fulfillment and bless others in wonderful ways.

In my times of prayer and intention, I allow divine ideas to fill my mind. Throughout the day, I use words infused with positive energy. My thoughts, words, and actions express in powerful ways that bless the world.




In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.—John 1:1

DAILY WORD - COMFORT

I reach out to share and experience comfort.




Stressful situations are not always easy to handle. So if I am going through a major change or loss, my most immediate need will probably be for comfort. Faith whispers to my wounded emotions with a gentle reminder, “You are not alone.” My greatest source of comfort always comes from God.

Friends and family may also provide me with comforting words or gestures. I accept, grateful that they care. I find comfort knowing that, by reaching out my hand, I find another's.

Just as I receive comfort, I give it. I offer a listening heart, an encouraging word, a tender touch. The holy comfort of God manifests through me. I am the heart, voice, and compassion of Spirit. I freely give my caring to others, and I, too, am comforted.



This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.—Psalm 119:50

DAILY WORD - PET LOVE

I am grateful for the healing love of pets.




Pets love us no matter what we do—or don’t do. Animal friends don’t judge whether humans are worthy, nor do they withhold their love. They simply love us for being. Through their unconditional love, we experience the healing power of God.

The calm I feel when I pet an animal, or the joy of watching animals at play, brings me a sense of wholeness. Animals nurture the spiritual qualities of peace and happiness in me. They are living examples for how to trust the body’s intrinsic rhythm. They instinctively know when to rest, play, stretch, and exercise. The greatest instinct of all is their love with openhearted loyalty.

Today I thank pets and animals for bringing healing love to me and to all of humanity.



But ask the animals, and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you.—Job 12:7

DAILY WORD - RENEWAL

In springtime—as Earth turns toward renewal, fitfully and in starts, but with nature’s innate certainty—new seeds push their roots downward with dogged determination and tender buds begin their journey upward toward their unfolding. As we turn with hope from winter’s introspection toward the sun’s promise of warmth and the return of full color to our landscapes, let us celebrate personal renewal. Let us cele­brate the life-affirming bubbling up of our inherent creativity.

Creativity flows outward from Spirit to touch our hearts and inspire our minds with visions of what is new and possible. Creativity is the process through which we give tangible form to the subtle hints from unmanifested dreams. Creativity is the energy that allows us to transform our daily lives and honor our connection to God.

At this time of year, let us express our gratitude to Mother Earth for the extraordinary habitat she provides. Let us bow in acknowledgment to Spirit who, as our muse, prompts us, no matter how old or young we are, to creatively add the notes of our individual stories to the great song of Life.

DAILY WORD - HARMONY

Divine wisdom establishes harmony and order in my life.




The body is often referred to as the “temple of God.” If my mind stays focused on my physical human experience, I may forget the spiritual truth that the wisdom, support, and love of God are always with me.

I actively seek peace and harmony by focusing on the Truth. I boldly affirm that I am a living temple through which the spirit of God expresses. With repetition, this truth sinks deep into my heart. I let go of struggle, confusion, and chaos. I am fed and revitalized by the renewing flow of divine life.

Remembering and giving thanks that I am a beloved child of God fills my mind and heart with serenity. Harmony and order are established in my life. The spirit of God fills me with peace. I am renewed.



Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me.—John 14:11
