WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR April 23, 2018
Theme for the month of April is:
GREEN AND GROWING
Here’s a quote written by Ernest Holmes in our Science of Mind text: “Nothing could give form to a formless stuff, which has no mind of its own, but some intelligence operating through it. Here then, we come back to the Word as the starting point of all creation: God’s Word in the Great Creation, the Great World, and man’s word in the small world.” (Underlining my doing in order to stress importance.)
Rev. Jan Mark’s lesson yesterday was so powerful and down-to-earth. He also stressed the importance of consistent, daily spiritual practice of repetition of meaningful words (verbal thoughts) in achieving a financial consciousness, as well as other areas of our desires.
In addition, I believe the following, which is a transcript of a radio broadcast made by Ernest Holmes, is a further example of how we may use our word to demonstrate any good we desire.
“Now let us suppose that nothing has been going right for us and so we feel pretty discouraged. But we do have a conviction that there is a Power greater than we are and that we can use it. We have come to understand that this Power works for us by working through us. And so we begin to change our way of thinking and this is done by making certain definite statements every day and by persisting until we receive a proof.
“Perhaps we will say something like this: ‘Knowing that there is a Power greater than I am, I am placing complete confidence in it. I believe that this Power is now working in my life. I believe that I am being guided by an intelligence that knows everything. I believe that I am being guarded by a Love that tenderly cares for everyone. I believe that there is a Power operating in my affairs which is supreme.’
“Therefore, I say to myself: ‘There is no fear or doubt, nothing that can dim my vision or mar the picture that I now make of myself as being whole and happy and confident. There is no discouragement from the past and there is no fear that can mar the faith that I have today. I know that my word, my own thinking right now erases all negative pictures in my mind and replaces them with confidence and expectancy, with faith and assurance. I expect new and better things to happen. I believe that I shall be surrounded by love and by friendship.”
Offered to you In Joy,
I am worthy of success in all my endeavors and financially well supported.
