Daily word - Divine Order

I recognize the order of the Universe within and around me.
A helpful exercise in recognizing order is to imagine an aesthetically pleasing object that exemplifies order and symmetry. Nature provides numerous examples. The spirals of a seashell or the structure of a honeycomb are pictorial affirmations of order.
This exercise helps me realign with the Truth of my being and affirm that I, too, am part of divine intelligence and order. I know from experience that times of distraction or hardship will pass and divine order will prevail. Being spiritually aware, working in harmony with the Universe, and trusting in divine order does not mean there will not be problems. However, it offers assurance that guidance will come, and I will learn from and overcome challenges creatively and confidently.
For God is a God not of disorder but of peace.—1 Corinthians 14:33

Daily Word - Vision

I keep my vision positive.
When world conditions seem to suggest chaos, I find peace by keeping the high watch with my mental vision focused on Spirit. Because I know Infinite Wisdom resides within, I regularly take time to examine my thinking and speaking. It is too easy to fall into habits that don’t express the person I want to be.
So I take a moment to step back and focus my attention on the big picture. I ask myself: Is Spirit at work in this situation? Am I responding in faith by remaining focused on divine activity? The spirit of God within is the answer to every question of my heart. Through divine wisdom, I keep my vision positive.

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.—1 Corinthians 13:12

Daily Word - Guidance

I walk in faith, guided by my inner light.
Striving to express my spirituality while living a human experience, I sometimes find myself praying for guidance. Which path should I take? Which choice should I make?
In Truth I never lack guidance. It might not always arrive as a clear and detailed message from on high. I might even find myself called upon to trust and follow my inner intuition, to have faith where doubt may reside.
I express that trust by placing one foot in front of the other, moving forward with conviction that my steps are taking me precisely where I need to go. As I walk, I am guided by an inner light that would not have appeared if I simply stood still and waited.
For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.—Matthew 7:8

Daily Word - Comfort

All is well because all is God.
Any search for comfort or reassurance leads me to my own divine nature. I find the comfort I seek by knowing I am part of All That Is.
Soon I feel my oneness with eternal life and love. That oneness is always there, but sometimes I might need a little reminder. When this happens, I release outer circumstances and retreat into the quiet, affirming: All is well because all is God.
Calm fills me. God within me satisfies my life with peace. The outer situation might still remain, but something has changed now: my view of it. I see beyond appearances through a lens of truth and faith.
I find great comfort in knowing that all is well because all is God.
Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant.—Psalm 119:76

Daily Word - Align

I relinquish my concerns to the serenity of Spirit within.
If I feel stressed or rushed, I might seem out of alignment—off-center from my Source. Yet this is the furthest thing from the truth. Either I am failing to see the good that is present, or I am allowing myself to become distracted from my spiritual purpose.
Faith provides the answer—the realization that within me are love, creativity, strength, and understanding, gifts that are with me always.
I am blessed with an inner knowing that leads me to my answers. My next steps become clear. I align with my divine essence as I pause, breathe, and appreciate the life I have been given and the abilities I have to do what I need to do. I relinquish my concerns to the serenity of Spirit within.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.—Romans 8:28

Daily Word - Forgive

Forgiveness is divine love expressing through me.

Experience tells me that holding on to resentment saps my energy. So I make a choice not to brood over unkind words or actions said or done by another. Instead, I forgive.

As I look back, I realize that I, too, may have blurted out words or caused anguish that I wish I could take back. That’s not who I am. And that is likely not who another is either, at heart.

Forgiveness lightens my personal emotional burdens. It is one of the ways divine love expresses as me. It frees me to be the peaceful, cheerful person I really am. It is a gift I give to myself. I am a better person for my willingness and ability to release the resentment I have been holding.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.—Luke 6:37

Daily Word - Joy

Joy sings in me.

From the moment I wake, I turn my thoughts to the song of my soul. “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” This familiar tune uplifts and inspires me. I start my day grateful to be alive and grateful for the opportunity to shine my inner light.

I have inherited spiritual gifts of creativity, wisdom, love, and grace. Gratitude turns to blissful anticipation as I consider the infinite possibilities for sharing my God-given gifts with others.

My joy-song grows from a gentle whisper to a powerful operatic aria. Beginning my day with this internal melody inspires me to take action on my dreams. The joy that sings in me realigns me with my heart and my inner spirit.

Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise.—Psalm 66:1-2

Daily Word - Let Go, Let God

I am confident in my spiritual growth.
Life is filled with moments of letting go. A bird lets go of the branch to fly. Parents release the hands of toddlers so they learn to walk on their own.
Letting go is an act of faith in the divine process of growth. I release any attachment I have to past successes or challenges, confident that I am continually growing into a greater expression of my divine potential. I do not worry or concern myself about how I will navigate the future. My divine nature within calls forth the spiritual qualities that best serve me.
Each day’s experience provides opportunities to develop new skills and a deeper understanding of all that I am capable of being and doing. I have no need to cling to the past or fear the future because something greater is unfolding in me now.
Into your hand I commit my spirit.—Psalm 31:5
