Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 04/20/2017

Let me be a #force4good in this world – each day I’ll give my best.  Have you ever asked yourself as you sing each Sunday, “How can I be sure of the force I am putting out there in the world?  How can I create the effect I want to create?”

Speaking of Creation, did you realize that there are two creation stories in Genesis, and two different versions of Creator God? 

  • In Chapter 1, Elohim, God the Father (the Hebrew word for God – Divine Mind) creates the heavens and the earth in six days.  He then rests on the seventh day.  I assume he was really tired after all his hard thinking and planning.
  • In Chapter 2, Yahweh, (the energy of ‘I Am’) creates Adam from the dust; breathes into him the breath of life and places him in the Garden of Eden.  There is a very important fact in chapter 2 that many have overlooked: Have you ever read Genesis 2:4-5?
  • “The Lord (Yahweh) made the earth and the heavens and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew.  The Lord (Yahweh) had not caused it to rain and there was not yet a man to till the ground.” 

 

Every architect and builder follows the same plan.  No contractor would just sit and pray and assume that the home he was being paid to build would miraculously appear.  Every architect or builder spends time dreaming about the structure and then goes about getting all the pieces and parts together before beginning the project. 

Do you realize that the force you put out into our world is first dreamed about and planned in Divine Mind and then moved into a creation that others can begin to see, hear, and feel and proclaim “It is good!”

We affirm and sing “Let there be peace on earth” “We choose peace”  “Let me be a #force4good” and then as we look around can we say……. “It is good?”

Are you wanting to begin to learn how to work with Universal Laws?  Join us on Sunday morning as we begin some conversations that we will continue over the next few months.  We are stepping into Compassionate Action.  Are we planning those acts of compassion before we actually put our feet on the ground?

I affirm that as you step into creating compassionate actions your blessings continue to be “heaped up, pressed down, shaken together and running over.”

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/30/2017

On Sunday April 2nd the Lenten Focus is “The Overcomer.”  When Jesus the Master Teacher was preparing his disciples for his departure from their lives he stated to them:  “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble – but take heart – I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33.   A few days later he was crucified.

Have you ever wondered what Jesus was really talking about?  It would seem to the unenlightened observer that the world overtook him.  So what was he speaking of when he stated, “I have overcome the world?”  

I affirm you will join us on Sunday as we discuss what it means in each of our lives to be an overcomer.  My definition is simply, “an overcomer is a person who rises in vibration above those things in the world that would pull us down”.  How do we “Be in the world but not of it?”  How do we be the compassionate and loving people without allowing the things we see and experience to pull us into negative energies? 

Jesus the Master Teacher used the method of “looking up”; he allowed not only his gaze to rise but also his thoughts to rise above the situation.  “What is really going on here?” and  “What is my role here?”

·         An Overcomer is one who recognizes the truth of their being.  

 “I am a divine child of God.”

·         An Overcomer recognizes that everyone else has that same divinity whether they know it or not. 

 “Made in the image and likeness.”

·         An overcomer is one who demonstrates divine universal laws in their day to day lives.

As I give so shall I receive.”

·         An overcomer believes that the number one thing to overcome is their own error thought.   

  “Thoughts in mind reproduce after their kind.”  

·         An Overcomer makes the decision to rise in personal vibration even when it is hard.

“It’s all about perception.”

 

When we accept the fact that we are an overcomer, we will never settle for anything less than a miracle.  The miracle may be for us or for another.  The definition of a miracle is a change in perception. 

What perception are you willing to change to be an overcomer?
