Reading & Meditation by Rev. Christine Emmerling, D.D., 3/13/2022
Today I’m sharing with you from Divine Science Its Principle and Practice by Malinda Cramer and Fannie B. James.
It is a well-known fact that reiteration deepens impression. A statement of a new idea may impress one slightly, but as the thought is dwelt upon it becomes more familiar and the idea that it brings becomes more illuminated. Repetition is a necessity in these chapters since all decisions are referred to the one basis, the omnipresence of God, and its law of expression....Be positive, be firm, and unwavering. Consciousness of truth will be your reward. Every hour of every day, yes, every moment, be on your guard to admit only the perfect good, to affirm the love-presence in everything.
Never give up. Until beliefs disappear continue to speak the words of Truth. Assume the true position of a Son of God and express truth in wholeness. All perfection that has been and that ever will be, is now. To recognize it is to realize it; to acknowledge it is to awaken to a sense of being it, which will enable us to speak truth as it was in Jesus.
We will now move into meditation. Take in a few deep breaths and relax. Let us now turn inward to our holy temple. As I speak to take these words in for yourself.
God is all -- everywhere present; God is all good, and that is the eternal Truth. I now affirm this one eternal Truth of God as being all; then all is good. Life is good. My life is so good. I now let go of all other thoughts, they are slipping away into the nothingness from which they came.
God’s Goodness is my very being; mind, body and soul. (Repeat)
I am a living expression of God’s goodness. Therefore I witness God’s goodness everywhere. In this very moment, and every moment all is good. I live in a world that is radiating goodness from the tiniest molecule of creation, all life, all substance, our planet, solar system and universe. Life is good, so very good. (Silence)
As we bring our attention back, let us give thanks for all we have received.
