Day – 1

     It is unnecessary to go anywhere or change anything to find the glories of God. We need only open our eyes to spiritual reality, to the omnipresence of God, good, which is always available to us.

     For every material sacrifice there is a spiritual blessing. Right desire is the deepest form of prayer.

     I tell you truth when I say there is only one source of all good – God. The conscious recognition and acceptance of this fact acknowledged by every activity of the mind, not two or three times a day – but every few moments all day long – no matter what the outer self is doing, and this maintained, will enable anyone to express his perfect freedom and dominion over all things human. Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.132)

Today

He who hath made thee whole,

Will keep thee day by day;

He who hath spoken to thy soul,

Hath many things to say;

He who hath gently taught,

Yet more will make thee know;

He who hath wonders wrought,

Still greater things will show,

He loveth always – faileth never;

Then rest in Him today – forever.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.122)

A child’s desire.  Dear Father; I want to love Thee supremely; and to be unselfish, kind, patient, temperate, good and pure.  I want to honor my earthly parents and to be able to uplift humanity.  I know that God is good, and that He has made me in His own likeness, harmonious and immortal; and I will strive daily not to make myself appear otherwise.  I do thank Him, now and forever – Amen.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.121)

Dailies

We are called to lay ourselves daily, hourly, upon the altar of self-sacrifice, of utter dependence upon God, glorying in each awful trial, rejoicing in each draught from that cup which fits us to become participants with Jesus of his martyrdom and victory.  This power is given us in the same extent as we entertain the sense of the Spirit which enriched him, and we come into the fullness of demonstration as we have the same Mind which was in Christ Jesus.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.114)

Declare continually your own perfection and freedom, and let the true and divine idea destroy the mesmerism that argues that you are sad and unhappy.  This idea is your Saviour.  Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.118)

CHANGE OF HEART – There is another heart in us that needs to be changed; namely, the human affections.  Changed from selfishness to benevolence and love for God and man; changed so as to have but one God and to love Him supremely, and our brother man as ourselves.  This change of heart will have its effect physically as well as spiritually, and heal disease sooner than burnt offerings or drugs.  It is a good thing to mentally remind yourself daily that God is the only law-maker for man, morally, spiritually, and physically.  Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.47)
