Divine love heals and restores me. I am alive, alert, and enthusiastic about life. As I enter into a quiet time in the silence, all"worry thoughts" slip away. I give thanks that divine love created me and is continually healing me.

As I relax into God's loving presence, any physical or emotional pain is replaced with an encompassing sense of joy that surpasses all understanding. I take a moment to focus on each part of my body, feeling all tension evaporating, knowing that complete restoration is taking place. Slowly, gently coming back to an awareness of my surroundings, I feel both relaxed and refreshed. I understand that God is enfolding me in unconditional love and acceptance. I affirm what I know is true:

Divine love heals and restores me.

I am alive, alert, and enthusiastic about life.

"He grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised."--Romans 4:20-21

How Big is Your Bucket?

God has many blessings in store for you! He has favor in your future like you've never imagined. He wants to take you places you've never even dreamed of. But in order for us to partake of all these blessings, we have to increase our capacity to receive.

Think about this: if you have a one-gallon bucket, and someone has fifty gallons to give you, the problem is not with the supply. The problem is that you don’t have the capacity to receive the fifty gallons. But, if you get rid of that small
container and get something larger, then you will be able to receive more. It’s the same way with God. If we think we’ve reached our limits, the problem isn’t that God doesn’t have the resources or the ability.

The problem is that our container is too small. We have to enlarge our vision and make room for the new things God has for us. Our attitude should be, “Yes, the economy is down, but I know God is still on the throne. I know wherever I go His goodness and mercy follow me.” When you have that kind of attitude, you’re increasing your capacity to receive so that you can live the abundant life He has in store for you.

Father in Heaven,
Thank you for loving Me. 
I choose to increase my capacity to receive from You. I let go of limited thinking and old mindsets, and I open myself to everything You have 
in store for me.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

The Greatness and Power of God ~ In Us.

Do we really know that we have greatness inside of us? The Holy Spirit actually dwells within us. We have all the power and authority in heaven and earth living on the inside of us!

All throughout life, God gives us opportunities to discover that greatness on the inside of us. When we overcome obstacles, we are tapping into that strength and greatness within. One thing I've learned is that Heavenly Father doesn't allow big challenges to face small people. He never allows any challenge to be greater than what we can handle. Sometimes it feels that way.

You may be facing something big today. It may seem like it's over your head, but that is a sure sign you’re a big person with a big destiny. You may feel small, you may not see how it's going to work out, but you've got to remember who you are; a child of The Most High God. You have been created in His image. You're wearing your crown of favor, and you are carrying His greatness on the inside of you. Have the attitude that says, "This may be extraordinary, but I know I'm an extraordinary person serving an extraordinary God." Stand in faith knowing that you have the victory because you have His greatness living on the inside of you!

Heavenly Father, I thank thee for Thy Greatness on the inside of me. I choose to stand in faith today knowing that with Thee, I will overcome every challenge and every obstacle. I bless Thy holy Name.
In the Name of Jesus Christ who hath made it possible for me to return to Thee.

Mastery is not measured by the number of terrible
things you eliminate from your life, but by the number of times you eliminate calling them terrible.
