Maryum will give examples from Ernest Holmes, other New Thought authors, as well as wisdom gained from her own life experiences to further illustrate this topic.    
Darrolyn Fennelly, RScP  will be on pulpit.

This week's quote:
 "Our faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."  Ernest Holmes
This Week's Affirmation
"Divine mystery transforms my whole world with love, elevating it to a state of higher health."

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
I Am a Remarkable Being
The Mind of God, Infinite Intelligence, is the essence expressing in all I see.  Its brilliance shines gloriously through me all the time.  Wisdom guides me as I speak my word, which is the Power of Spirit.
Whether I desire a loving relationship, a new job, a healthier lifestyle or a greater realization of God, the good I seek is seeking me.  Desire in the heart is always God tapping at the door of my consciousness.  I am encouraged and inspired by this statement of truth.  My hearts desires are already within me.  I just have to claim and accept these blessings. Through prayer, I welcome the good unfolding in and through me.  I have a remarkable life.  With confidence, faith and trust I attract abundant good in all areas of my life. How good it is to know this as my new reality. And release the past and stand fresh and in this now moment.  
With gratitude, I feel my deepening connection to God and my Oneness with Spirit.  I release this prayer with deep unshakable conviction knowing this prayer is answered.  It is already done.  I say Yes to the fullness and richness of God.  So It Is.  Amen.   

Rev. Maryum Morse

The Good Thought
Quotes About
"How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also If I am to be whole."
Carl Jung
"THE GOOD LIFE requires that we take pleasure in new things; A GOOD LIFE requires that we take pleasure in moments.

To enjoy THE GOOD LIFE we have to get ahead; to enjoy A GOOD LIFE we have to make the trip worthwhile.

THE GOOD LIFE is supported by feeding our pocketbooks; A GOOD LIFE is supported by feeding our souls."
Steve Goodier
"God is Self Love."
Wald Wasserman

Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
I am pulling a card  from the John Holland PSYCHIC TAROT ORACLE DECK- for today's wisdom
Physical Card 2
Movement, Choices, Decisions
John Holland's CARD MEANING
" Thiscard indicates a time of movement: Significant changes and choices must be made. With hard work, great effort, and determination, you have the ability to juggle all the demands that are in front of you. Whether they concern money, business decisions, or other projects, it's important to stay flexible and focused. You don't have to do it alone; reach out for the best advice and assistance. In addition, a financial union or partnership may present itself to you.
The more time you take to make these vital decisions and choices, the longer it will be before you can move toward your goals in the physical material world. The changes that are emerging aren't some random acts or coincidences - they're all part of a positive and larger scheme. Notice the connections with everything, as this will enable you to avoid future problems and conflicts.
What stands out from this card is: "staying flexible and reaching out for advice and assistance"
Here's why:
In times of change, sometimes we just want to stay fixed and rigid in our stance.  We want to put our foot down and stay immovable.  But that's just the time we have flow like water, float like a butterfly, etc. 
After we take stock of our options, there is still another choice.  This is where, staying flexible allows all the data to come in from where ever it comes, to help draw you closer to what to the most perfect solution to whatever problem is on your table.
The deal is to not be overwhelmed during the information gathering stage and to consult with someone whose opinion we value.  This is where the "Don't go it all alone" message part of this card comes in.  In traditional decks this would be the Two of Wands card.
The card itself is interesting.  There are open doors showing a myriad o options.  We see an option for Gold - let's assume that's money decisions.  We see a Red door which shows two wedding bands - meaning our emotional relationship decisions.   Next is this budding plant, which speaks to mental activity, and the final is the blue sky, which is the spiritual.  
Stay focused and decide that you will make the right choice. 
It doesn't serve to to think of any other outcome happening besides success. You have got this.   This is positive card indicating that there doesn't have to be any stress or strain in you regarding this decision.
So, once all the data has been examined, make a decision in peace. Even if you have a towering pile of crap to get through, you have to know that with intention and laser sharp focus, you can win the day. 
Then let it go and let the Divine take over. There is are force within you that knows exactly how to get the jobs done.  Trust in that and trust in yourself and this will be a cinch.
So here's an affirmation to help us stay calm about the big decisions in our lives:
"I am confident in my decision-making ability. I decide and let go. Never overthinking. Never second-guessing myself."

And so it is.
And So It Is.

What Brother Ernie said:
Love is the central flame of the universe, nay, the very fire itself. It is written that God is Love and that we are the expressed likeness, the image of the Eternal Being. Love is self-givingness through creation, the impartation of the divine through the human.
Love is an essence, an atmosphere which defies analysis as does life itself. It is that which IS and cannot be explained: it is common to all people, to all animal life and evident in the response of plants to those who love them. Love reigns supreme over all.
The essence of love, while elusive, pervades everything, fires the heart, stimulates the emotions, renews the soul and proclaims the spirit. Only love knows love, and love knows only love. Words cannot express its depths or meaning. A universal sense alone bears witness to the divine fact. God is Love and Love is God.
Love Balance by Law
Love, being the most subtle force known, the strongest latent energy, should be carefully preserved and guarded against the inroads of its opposite which is license. When the intellect decides that to which the emotions are to respond, then, love is balanced by law; but when the emotions are in the ascendency, chaos reigns with destruction following in its wake.
It is wrong to call emotional mistakes by the sacred name of love, thus attempting to dignify them by a false cloak.
Love is pure in heart and sacred in its motives. It is the essence of goodness, spilled over everything and flowing through all.
It is easy to understand that God must be love, since everything in nature loves. Our love and OUR desire to express ourselves in terms of harmony and unity, is but a reflection of that Higher Mind, which is harmony and unity. Without love we are lost and with it there can be no loss.

Food for Thought...

11 Things That Happen When You Search For Wholeness Within Yourself Instead Of Another Person

By  Marisa Donnelly

1. You discover that you were always whole, always complete, and never lacking on your own.
Searching for wholeness within yourself means that you stop relying on others to fill you or complete you. Instead of falling into a relationship with a significant other to find meaning, you look for meaning within yourself, within the things you do, within your emotions and perspectives and opinions. And as you do this, you discover that you were never lacking. You never needed someone's love to fill you, as if there were parts missing. You have always been, and will always be, completely whole and full on your own.

2. You realize the magnitude of your spirit and the strength within your skin.
Finding your wholeness means realizing how incredibly strong you are. It means resurfacing and taking a breath of fresh air, confident and renewed. It means noticing the way your muscles move, the way your body shifts, the way your spirit brightens an entire room as you walk in. It means acknowledging all that you've pushed through and will continue to push through, every single day. Finding your wholeness means seeing, in a new and beautiful light, how truly astounding you are.

3. You realize what is truly important to you, without outside influence.
In the past, when you searched for wholeness within others or within your relationships, you were continually influenced by what people thought or believed. Though this may have happened unconsciously, your perspectives and what you placed importance on were shifted and often dictated by the individuals around you. Now that you have focused on your own identity and self-worth, you are able to seek those answers within yourself.

4. You learn that love is simply within you and that you deserve it, most importantly, from yourself.
It's human, and often natural to search for love in other people, thinking that their affection and attention towards you will fill this void within your heart. But when you stop looking to others for answers and seek them within yourself, you see that love is already and always within you. You see that love is you, in every single part. And you understand that you deserve love-from others yes, but most importantly, from yourself.

5. You place value in the things you believe in, and support those things passionately.
When your self-perception shifts, you begin to realize who you truly are and what you're truly interested in. When you realize that you are a whole, complex, and strong person, you begin to put value in your thoughts, your perspectives, and your beliefs. You start to notice what is important to you and what causes you support. And you passionately support those things.

6. You understand what you cannot compromise on, and stand firm in those decisions.
As you learn your values, you learn what you cannot stand for. You learn what causes you can't, under any circumstances, budge on. And as you find your identity and wholeness, you accept and own this about yourself, proudly and confidently.

7. You build yourself into a person who is ready for, and interested in love as an addition to your world, not an answer.
As you find wholeness within yourself, you learn that love is not something necessary, in the sense that you're supposed to devote your entire life to the pursuit of it. You learn that love does not equal a sense of self or a fullness-that fullness comes from within. And most of all, you learn that love is simply a beautiful, powerful addition to your life, not an answer to everything.

8. You find what drives you and spend your time in selfish pursuit of it.
Once you discover your wholeness, you realize what sets your heart on fire. You realize what you want to pursue, both personally and professionally, and you do so completely and often selfishly. For the first time, your life isn't dictated by a relationship; rather, it's focused on how you can build yourself and your career by doing the things you love. And your relationship(s) encourage and support your goals, instead of distract from them.

9. You discover what scares you and learn, on your own, to face those things.
It's natural to want to have someone carry your burdens, to help you square up to your demons, to solve your problems or help you battle your fears. But when you search for your own sense of self, you realize that what makes you truly strong is your ability to do these things alone. That's not to say you can't ask for help, because you can and should, but you are now empowered to be more independent and capable. Because you are, and always will be.

10. You learn that you are far more resilient than you think.
Realizing who you are and who you are capable of becoming teaches you that you are so incredibly strong and resilient. Seeing what you've already fought through, and how you will continue to find your footing, even when life gives you turbulence, is inspiring. You have, and will overcome.

11. You appreciate yourself for the imperfect, complex, and astounding being you are.
Discovering your wholeness means falling in love with yourself. It means seeing, for the first time, how incredible you are. It means taking the time to put yourself first, to pamper yourself, and to celebrate each success. It means building yourself up after you fall and speaking words of love and encouragement to your heart when you're down. It means understanding that you are imperfect, but taking pride in your flaws and failures, as they have created the person you are today. It means giving yourself the pure, raw love you've been giving everyone else for so long. It means seeing your worth-both body and soul.
