I Am Blessed

Rev. Kelly Isola

Say these words out loud: I am blessed.

Now say them again with a pause in between each word. I. Am. Blessed.

Now one more time with a longer pause and with your most powerful voice: I … Am … Blessed!

Even as I write the words, a smile emerges slowly across my face, my breathing slows, and my shoulders drop.

Just saying these words activates my imagination of the blessings already in my life, knowing many are not yet in my present awareness.

I AM Guided

I AM Guided

Affirmation: I am in tune with Spirit’s guidance.

I’m not asking for much. All I want is a little guidance. A burning bush would be nice. A few words written in the sky. Some days, I’d even settle for a particularly relevant fortune cookie. Please, God, just give me clarity in the midst of my confusion.

But alas, I’ve yet to discover a message emblazoned on the horizon, I’ve never seen a burning bush, and my last fortune cookie instructed me to learn Chinese.

The truth is that we live in Spirit’s wisdom. Like the fish in search of water, we are swimming in wisdom all the time but just don’t see it. Guidance is not something for which we have to grasp. It is something to which we attune.

God's Law of Justice Cannot Fail

God's Law of Justice Cannot Fail

Does life seem unfair to you? Does it seem that others find it easier to have the things they want and need, that others are blessed with good dispositions, with good looks, with splendid abilities? If you entertain any such thoughts, you need to reestablish yourself in the consciousness of justice. First of all, in thinking such thoughts you are not being just to yourself.

To establish yourself in a thought of justice, think about ideas such as the following:

Go After What You Want

Go After What You Want

I came home from a shopping excursion the other day to find a wild bird, which appeared to be a Grackle, flying around the inside of my house. She slammed into every window she could find in an attempt to escape. After several attempts to steer toward an open window, she finally flew out. I remember thinking that there were no obvious ways a bird could have gotten into our house, but weird things happen from time to time. I gave a sigh of relief and chalked it up as a sign of something to figure out later.
