WEEKLY UPDATE May 23, 2023

Message from the Minister


Affirmation: God guides me through open doors to greater good.


Open doors are my opportunities to learn, grow, and improve. They lead me to corridors of life where I receive and contribute gifts of inspiration, talent, and physical substance. Open doors are part of the divine order in my life.


I have often heard the saying, “When one door closes, another one opens.” Yet instead of waiting for another door of opportunity to open as in this analogy, might I actually find that a closing door is responding to the powerful draft from a door that has already opened? I expect doors of opportunity to be swinging on their hinges with the momentum of the powerful action of God’s good.

  

God leads me to and guides me through open doors to greater, more abundant good.

Strength



Strength is not simply a physical quality. As with all the 12 powers, it expresses itself on three levels, each one complementing the others in this life expression on the earth plane.


In the physical realm, strength is vitality, endurance, the ability to persist. In the mental area of expression, strength is that quality of mind which enables one to lead, to accomplish, to follow through on decisions, to establish purposes in life, and to hold firm to spiritual principles in daily living. It expresses itself as stability of character.


Affirmation: I have the strength to accomplish all that is mine to do.


Be A Center of Love

Eric Butterworth

 

When the world around you is in turmoil, you may be confused as to where you should stand. It is important to know that you need not become trapped in divisiveness. 

 

The world needs the radiation of your love; but don’t delude yourself that the world needs your religion. Don’t become a proselytizer, a missionary zealot for Truth. There is a better way. Be a “meta-missionary,” dealing with seeing things or people right instead of the misguided effort to set them right.

 

Certainly, the message is universally needed. But as far as you are concerned the great need is to change your consciousness, dissolve your prejudices, and heal your fears. The Truth is for you! It is a practical process by which you can achieve an effective life and at the same time become an effective instrument of love and harmony. 

 

You can become a center of love. Enough centers of love around the world will build bridges of communication and peace. Love is the answer.
