Reading & Meditation (Power) by Rev. Christine Emmerling 7/22/2023

Today’s reading is from the book Mysteries by Nona Brooks co-founder of Divine Science church and school in Colorado.

This day is rich with blessings to the one who sees their relation to God. Theirs is the day of power. The day of power makes rich returns for it is based upon an endeavor to realize God’s Presence in every event and experience of the hours.


Moment by moment we live; moment by moment we think. If our thinking is optimistic, constructive, and right, and our doing is consistent with it, we shall find the day an opportunity for development. A day met with faith, love, and joy is the best preparation for the next day. Make the day worth-while; make it a day of activity and of overcoming, and tomorrow will be richer as a result of your attitude today.


So let us pass through life making the days' worth-while to ourselves and to others certain that the law is perfect at every point, rejoicing in the good of the whole, and as a consequence, realizing heaven every day. Thus, shall we pass on into the open court, the place of freedom and power. With the morning light let us consecrate ourselves to living true to the principle of unity, to practicing the scientific method of thinking, and the great religious experience shall be ours. Jesus says in Acts 1:8, “You shall receive power after that the Holy Spirit has come upon you.”


Meditation - Power

We shall now move into a meditation on Power. Let us turn inward to our holy temple. Now bringing our attention to our breath breathing in deeply and exhale slowly as we focus our attention to our heart. We still our thoughts as we listen and take these words in.


2 Timothy 1:7 - For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.


Omnipotence, meaning God as unlimited power that is everywhere present, and being the only true power. This one true power is unconditional compassionate love. Love is the only power that conquers all difficulties and sets everything aright. I being one with God, I am an inheritor of this power of love. I have the power to be and do good loving acts. I embrace the power of God’s love within me.


I am a powerful living being of Light, Love and Goodness.

I am a powerful living being of Light and Love.

I am a powerful living being of Light.

I am a powerful living being...


I open my mind and heart to the power of love. Knowing God is everywhere present, then I know this power of love is alive in everyone and all of life both invisible and visible. Even before form, the thought was love, the thought was good.


Out of this love comes the entire universe and all of life, and God calls it “Very Good.” Each moment I too claim as very good. As I be this living temple of love I see love’s activity in all of God’s creation: be it child, animal, tree, ocean, star or the air I breathe -- all is good. I now go into the silence of Oneness.


Let us take a moment to let the joy of gratitude fill our hearts. Thank you, Divine Presence, for these moments of Oneness. So it is, Amen.
