The Morning Blessing: Fire in the Belly

We are not true to ourselves when we let the world crowd in upon us and weigh us down with its contrary appearances. ~ Frank Richelieu.

In Science of Mind we often hear the phrase that thoughts are things. I believe that more powerful than the thought itself is the belief you hold about the thought or words you speak. Holmes refers to this as the "fire in the belly." Your conviction and belief powers your word to become true and manifest in form.

So today let's remind ourselves to be aware of our expectations. Do we expect the perfect income and work, right romantic relationships, wonderful friendships, perfect housing and transportation, divine health and wholeness, inner harmony, perfect spiritual path, peace instead of war, and to be sustained and maintained by Spirit itself? Or do we allow belief in our fears, doubts, race thoughts and worries to be our predominant belief system? Science of Mind teaches that the world is the self writ large, which means that our life experience is an exact out-picturing of our beliefs. Every good thing can be and is ours in deliberate imagination, and that we can shift easily at the deepest levels of our psyche into ever better versions of self and claim any reality in which we're willing to reside. We have the ability to walk around with great expectations that God is our source, supply and sufficiency. We have the power in consciousness to have faith in the invisible, that what we expect will be made so and visible. As soon as we get out of the way and allow for Spirit to move through us, it is done.

I invite you this day to be mindful of your expectations. Allow for any false thoughts to slip away to nothingness as you proclaim with great expectation that divine right action is your birthright and at hand now. Know with certainty that it is God's good pleasure to grant you the kingdom of heaven on earth with no delay. This inheritance includes all of your expectations being met now.
Gather your ability to bring forth all you desire,

Rev. Angela


There is One Source, One existence, and One God in infinite action
and manifestation. Representing the individualization of the Divine,
I turn within and premeditate a useful interaction with Spirit, shifting
gracefully into its expression this day.
I take time to be still when faced with a choice today. I let the hidden
"small voice" of Spirit show itself to me, especially if the options that
imediately present themselves seem less than fully satisfying. Knowing
that there is always something better waiting to be recognized, I willingly
accept it. Every idea or concept I could possibly need already exists in
my consciosness. Nothing is impossible. All realities can manifest. All
things are real. I can change my consciousness in relation to any given
event, and the event must change!
Directing my attention, with complete acceptance of things as they are
in this moment, I embody an attitude of appreciation and praise for the
perfection of Spirit. All is well in my world and I shift from having to
make decisions, to making choices instead. And so it is.
