Sunday is the day I share a little of my soul...enjoy.
I visited a dear lady from our congregation in the hospital today who is fighting a new battle with cancer this week. Tomorrow she will have a procedure done...but this came at the end of a week full of my own personal thoughts on the power of the mind and Inviting the Spirit.
“Thoughts mold your features. Thoughts lift your soul heavenward or drag you toward hell. … As nothing reveals character like the company we like and keep, so nothing foretells futurity like the thoughts over which we brood. … To have the approval of your conscience when you are alone with your thoughts is like being in the company of true and loving friends. To merit your own self-respect gives strength to character. Conscience is the link that binds your soul to the spirit of God” (“Those Sculptors Called Thoughts and Ideals,” July 1960, 495).
That is the Spirit that has the power to heal. That is the Spirit that has the power to reveal powerful truth. That is the Spirit that my dear friend in the hospital has the power to invite into her mind and body. I know miracles happen everyday. I know for a fact that God is a very Positive Being. God is Love. God is Good. If we are trying to have our minds focused on these things, He will be there.
In all the physical and spiritual battles each of us will face, the greatest ones will be won and lost within the secret confines of the human mind. Choose your chocolate well...make sure it's good quality and designed to save your soul. Better yet...stick with the Bread of Life instead.
There it is.
