From The Chaplain's Desk
July 2011 Chaplain's Corner

By Amy Whitcomb, State Chaplain

  JULY 2, 2011 --

During these summer months let us set a time aside to consider affirmations.  When repeated in the silence of your mind, these words will deliver you out of the greatest external distress, places where no human help avails.  You do not change God’s attitude toward you one iota by either importuning or affirming.  You only change your attitude toward Him.

Our first affirmation:  God is life, intelligence, substance, and omnipotence.  As you repeat this affirmation, remember that every particle of life, love, intelligence and power is simply a certain degree of God made manifest or visible through a form.  Try to think what it means when you say that God is omnipotence, what other power can there be working in the universe?  Since God is omnipotence, put aside the traditional teaching of an adverse power, evil that at any time may thwart the plans of God and bring you harm.  Do not disturb yourself about the appearance of evil all about you but in the very presence of what seems evil stand true and unwavering in affirming that God, the good, is omnipresence.  By so doing you will see the seeming evil melt away as the darkness before the light or as dew before the morning sun.

Second:  I am a child of God, and every moment His life, love, wisdom and power flow into and through me.  I am one with God and governed by His law.  Remember that when repeating this affirmation that nothing or circumstance can possibly interpose between you and the Source of your life, wisdom or power.  It is all hidden with Christ in God.  Nothing but your own ignorance of how to receive or your willfulness, can hinder your having unlimited supply.  You will soon see a marvelous change wrought in yourself by the realization that this spoken word will bring to you.  By thus affirming you put yourself in harmony with divine law, which is always working toward your good and never toward your harm or punishment.
