Weekly Wisdom/ Thoughts on Truth

"Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and the assurance about what we do not see."
(Hebrews 11:1)

"Faith is the perceiving power of the mind linked with the power to shape substance."
(Charles Fillmore)

Faith is that ever-encouraging, confident feeling of knowing all is well because our Father, Mother, God loves us, cares for us, and is present in our lives every moment of every day. As we experience faith, we have a grander, deeper understanding of life and God. Our faith becomes a living faith, not a faith that is stuck in past modes of being.

With faith, we no longer hesitate to undertake any challenge that is worthy. It does not matter how great or difficult it may appear. Faith brings that sense of power, peace, strength, and confidence-a true understanding that with faith, we can accomplish great, wonderful, even miraculous things!

For those filled with faith, the future is as magnificent, successful and as beautiful as they desire it to be!

“Parting is such sweet sorrow.” (William Shakespeare)

As I prepare to retire and leave my beautiful Unity family, I have been reflecting on that Shakespearean quote. I am so excited about the next chapter of my life, and yet there is that bit of sweet sorrow that comes bubbling up in my consciousness.

We have been on the path of spiritual expansion and together have learned the deeper understanding of metaphysics and divine law. We have come to realize that we live in a sea of pure positive potential. We have been a spiritual support for one another— lifting our vision and holding that higher thought for peace of mind, happiness, success, health, abundance and radiant living.

We have come to understand and know that there is a plan for each of us and that we are totally equipped to carry out that plan and live in joy. We have been empowered to reach for the stars and follow God’s guidance knowing always that we are not alone—that God loves us, cares for us, guides us and directs us.

We have learned that having a desire is not some far off wish, but a very real message from our God. “Desire in the heart is always God tapping at the door of your consciousness with His infinite supply, a supply that is forever useless unless there be demand for it.” (H. Emilie Cady). There is nothing that stands between us, our heart’s desire, and our greater good. Our desires already exist in possibilities; the very reason we have a desire is because God is seeking to give it to us. “Fear not little flock; for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32).

A wonderful affirmation is:
I fear not. It is the Father’s good pleasure to give me the kingdom (heart’s desire) and it is my good pleasure to receive and accept it!

Or we may affirm:
The serene, calm, trustful Spirit now accomplishes all the desires of my heart. I rest in peace. (Charles Fillmore)

Unity of Delray Beach is a pillar of Truth, and throughout its history has fulfilled its purpose, “to help and teach mankind to use and prove the eternal Truth taught by the Master.” (Charles Fillmore). We teach a spiritually empowered way of living through positive, practical Christianity.

It has been an extreme honor and great pleasure to have served as your minister for the past 25 years. So boldly we proclaim in our departing, “Oh, the places we will go! The things we will see! The experiences we will have! We are off to Great Places and Miracles are to be had!”

God bless you,

"Stop judging by appearances, but instead judge correctly."
(John 7:24)

"Wisdom in the mind of man is his power to choose rightly."
(Ella Pomeroy)

Within me is the wisdom of the ages. That wisdom is all-knowing, everywhere present and is readily available to me at a moment's notice. It knows what to do, when to do it and how to do it.

If at anytime I do not know which way to turn, I remind myself that I have access to unlimited wisdom and that it lies within me. I am an important part of a perfect and whole universe. There is an answer and divine wisdom shows me the perfect answer-opening ways where, to human sense, there is no way.

I know that nothing is impossible for I trust the unlimited help of divine wisdom; it reveals the greater good to me and I am blessed!

Weekly Wisdom/Thoughts on Truth

"...The mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace."
(Romans 8:6)

"We are purely living spirit not hampered by any conditions
of any kind and therefore not subject to illness."
(Thomas Troward)

Life is everywhere present and we draw on life at all times. Life is never static. It is always moving, always changing. It is vitality. There is an effervescent essence about life. This life is God-life and we are one with God-life at all times.

We frequently become distracted by thoughts and beliefs that take us down the wrong path and away from our good. At such times we can affirm boldly and with power, "Life, life, life, life! I am filled with the vibrant, magnificent life of God!"

Then, let us continue to remind ourselves, as often as is necessary, that God and the universe are actively working on our behalf at all times to bring us what we ask for and what is for our highest and best good. When we come to know this truth and begin to live our lives from this point of view, we will be fully healed and restored in every way. Life, life, life, life! I am filled with the vibrant, magnificent life of God!

Weekly Wisdom/Thoughts on Truth

"God is my strength and power and He makes my way perfect."(II Samuel 22:33)  

"When we think confidently about what we have asked in prayer, nothing can keep it from us." (Georgiana Tree West)

In her book, Prosperity's Ten Commandments, Georgiana Tree West wrote: "It is a law of mind that whatever is held in mind eventually must appear in form. If we pray for one thing but think another, it is the thing we think about that is going to shape itself in our daily lives...If we want God's good we must stop slumming in mind."  

Every so often, it's a good idea for us to take a personal inventory and do some major house cleaning-eliminating all ideas and beliefs that God requires us to live in misery, lack or poor health.  

Our gift of elimination/renunciation is our ability to release old, negative thoughts, ideas and beliefs that no longer serve us; it's our ability to forgive and release others to their highest and best good. Upon releasing and letting go, we create a vacuum that allows greater good to appear in our lives. When we willingly let go, we gain and maintain a healthy state of mind and body. We experience inner peace, joy and well-being. Praise God!
