Quote of the Week: “We shall have faith in Spirit and Its desires and Its ability to do for us all that we shall ever have need to be done.” Ernest Holmes

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer:

I Am Enough

God is All. God is Life, God is Love, God is Light, God is Power, God is Peace, God is Beauty, God is Joy.  I, too, am Life, Love, Light Power, Peace, Beauty and Joy.  The Infinite Mind fills me with every idea I need, in the instant that I need it.  I am provided for.  The highest good for all concerned is that occurs.  As I believe, it is done.

Since God is all there is and I am God in form, I feel the creative energy of the Divine.  I am enough to successfully meet any situation or experience that I create.  I am satisfied with myself.  I accept my choices and decisions as good and very good.  As I move thru my day, feelings of joy and acceptance fill me.  At the end of the day, I rest peacefully, recognizing a successful day.  I look at what I have created, and I see Good.  I feel well pleased with my actions and decisions.

I am grateful for the perfect life that is mine mow.  I give thanks for the consciousness to recognize this good.  I rejoice in the fulfillment of my words.  I thank God that this is so.  I release my word to the Law.  It is done and so it is.  Amen.

This Week's Quote The Spirit within you is knocking at the door of your heart.”  Dr. Michael Beckwith

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

Have An Unwavering Connection to the Infinite

Though much of who and what we are changes as we journey through life, our inherent worth remains constant. While the term self-worth is often used interchangeably with self-esteem, the two qualities are inherently different. Self-esteem is the measure of how you feel about yourself at a given moment in time. Your worth, however, is not a product of your intelligence, your talent, your looks, your good works, or how much you have accomplished. Rather it is immeasurable and unchanging manifestation of your eternal and infinite oneness with the universe. It represents the cornerstone of the dual foundations of optimism and self-belief. Your worth cannot be taken from you or damaged by life’s rigors, yet it can easily be forgotten or even actively ignored. By regularly acknowledging your self-worth, you can ensure that you never forget what an important, beloved, and special part of the universe you are.

You are born worthy—your worth is intertwined with your very being. Your concept of your own self-worth is thus reinforced by your actions. Each time you endeavor to appreciate yourself, treat yourself kindly, define your personal boundaries, be proactive in seeing that your needs are met, and broaden your horizons, you express your recognition of your innate value. During those periods when you have lost sight of your worth, you will likely feel mired in depression, insecurity, and a lack of confidence. You’ll pursue a counterfeit worth based on judgment rather than the beauty that resides within. When you feel worthy, however, you will accept yourself without hesitation. It is your worth as an individual who is simultaneously interconnected with all living beings that allows you to be happy, confident, and motivated. Because your conception of your worth is not based on the fulfillment of expectations, you’ll see your mistakes and failures as just another part of life’s journey! 

Human beings are very much like drops of water in an endless ocean. Our worth comes from our role as distinct individuals as well as our role as an integral part of something larger than ourselves. Simply awakening to this concept can help you rediscover the copious and awe-inspiring worth within each and every one of us.

"You are valuable, worthy and loved.  Claim and accept this truth in your being.  It is your only reality."    Rev. Maryum Morse

This Week's Quote “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

My Word for the Day is Gratitude

God is the Divine that I see.  It is with amazing grace and ease that I know the Infinite One is already here, awaiting my arrival in this present and precious moment. The embodiment of this awareness allows me to drop any burdens or beliefs I may be carrying that say I must do anything other than be present, open, available, and willing to be the messenger of Oneness and abundance.

I sit so comfortably seated in my unity with the Whole that I know nothing is missing--effortlessly, I receive an abundance of ideas, words, stories and concepts that breathe the breath of Life into my life; the realization is, I live in an abundant universe that supports me in every way, shape, and form, that moves me forward. Gratitude is the word of the day--I live so fully connected to Source today that I feel the blessings of everything and everyone who enters the sphere of my life--I look for the good and I bless it, praise it, and celebrate it; this is the energy that wraps itself around me and which shapes my destiny and blesses myself and my beloved spiritual community.

I am instantly flooded with a wave of gratitude which assures me it is so, and was so, even before these words parted my lips. Life IS good..and so it is.  Amen

This Week's Quote “Our Past is a story existing only in our minds.  Look, analyze, understand, and forgive.  Then as quickly as possible, chuck it.” Marianne Williamson

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

My Life is Magnificent and Pleasant

I know there is only God.  Spirit is the Creator of all there is and I am one with It.  God expresses in and through me as the I Am presence.

I create my life, my story just as I want it to be and exactly the way I want to feel a sense of Oneness and connection to the Infinite Intelligence and love.  I see through so-called problems or old patterns and recognize who I really am; God living through me, as me.  I reinterpret any negative messages I may have given meaning to as I let go of the past.  It was an illusion that I created anyway.  I recognize how powerful I am to have created my current life experience. I bless and release these old patterns easily, effortlessly and with great happiness knowing freedom is the result.  I realize every experience is perfect and no matter what it looks like it ultimately results in my growth and my Soul is awakened.  I focus my thoughts, feelings and actions on my ideal life simply allowing Divine will to guide me.  I envision my new lift story as my actual experience filled with ease, grace and abundance.  My life is magnificent.  It is great and very pleasant.

With pure joy, I demonstrate my new life right now, and it enriches every facet of my experience.  I give thanks for the creative power of my word as I release it to the Law.  I accept it is done.  And so it is.  Amen

This Week's Quote "I recognize and accept my blessings." – Rev. Maryum Morse

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

I Expect Good

God is infinite. I am one with the Divine pure beingness of Spirit. Oh I feel this connection of the I Am presence.  It is bliss.

I embrace each new day, knowing that my thoughts and actions help create my reality. As I go through life expecting good.  I recognize it and accept it in all the wonderfully diverse ways it comes to me. I begin my day by expressing gratitude to God for the warmth of the sunshine, the splendor of the changing colors of the trees, the laughter and excitement of children scampering off to school or play. On this day and always, I expect and see the good in everyone I meet.  I affirm the best possible outcome in each circumstance, knowing that divine order is always actively at work in my life and in the lives of those I love and cherish.  According to a divine plan, the universe responds in kind to my expectations of good. I recognize and accept my blessings in this now moment.

I am filled with awe and thanksgiving knowing this is my birthright and my only reality.  My good is my God, my God is my good.  I release these words into the Law knowing it is done.  And so it is. Amen

This Week's Quote "What you believe has more power than what you dream or wish or hope for.  You become what you believe." – Oprah Winfrey

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

I Create My Own Happy Endings

God is the source of all good. With my feet on the Earth, head in the Sky, I breathe in the wonder of life. My Spirit reverberates in gratitude for this life. I am alive and awake. I am aware that I am a Miracle. I am imbued with the Divine essence, the creator of all. I believe I am One with God.

I claim joyous abundance and realize that my dreams are a creation of my beliefs. I let the miracle of life open my eyes to new wonders, new ways of seeing beyond the limitations of past thinking. I simply let those old thoughts go as they no longer serve me. Now is when I know that all my dreams, visions and soul’s callings are brought into my experience. Now is where I find Great Spirit. I breathe deep and let the goodness and miracle of my life fill my heart, lift my mind and create such robust energy around me it generates light and attracts my desires to me.. I create my own happy endings. I am one with the creative frequency of God. I am always free to choose and choose again. How glorious it is to know I am a powerful creative, spiritual being. Can have anything I want in this life.

I am deeply grateful for the miracle of God, the miracle of me, and the miracle of this now moment. I accept and know this prayer is felt in my conscious and subconscious mind. I align with this truth. I release my word to the Law, the creative medium I accept, I feel it and I know It is done.   And so it is. Amen

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

I Let Go and Let God Guide Me

I consciously claim my recognition of the One Creative Power.  I made in the image and likeness of the Divine Presence behind all of creation.  I am the breath of God.

Knowing everyone encounters bumps and sometimes deep pits along the road of life.  My response determines how smoothly I will navigate through these challenges.  I effortlessly yield to Spirit’s guidance as I spend time in the sweetness of stillness.  I release any burden of pain, worry, or strife, and I turn all concerns, emotions and pain over to God.  I let go and let God as is my free will.  It is an act of faith, of surrender and use of my personal power.  I use my free will to align with Divine Will, which is always for my highest good.  Regardless of where I am on my spiritual path, as I let go and let God, obstacles, painful emotions and fears are eliminated.    I let go and let God guide me toward my highest good.  I feel Divine love in my heart, mind and soul healing and blessing me.

With deep gratitude and thanksgiving, I release my word into the Law.  I feel this precious love healing the painful places and illuminating my spirit with sweet peace, and joy.  How blessed I am.  Oh yes it is done!  And so it is.  Amen.

This Week's Quote “The omnipresent God, which is the Creative Power of the Universe, works in your world automatically.”  Raymond Charles Barker, Treat Yourself of Life

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

I Am Renewed and Refreshed

The Power and Presence of God as Infinite Intelligence is the cause of all life.  It is my Source, alive in me and in my thinking.  This Source brings about good in every aspect of my experience.

Swimming in a refreshing pool, sipping a cold drink on a hot day, enjoying a brisk, energizing walk….These experiences rejuvenate me in mind and body.  What rejuvenates me spiritually?  What helps me connect in oneness with God?

I feel spiritually rejuvenated when I read inspirational material, spend time in the Silence, watch inspiring films, attend a Sunday service, as I celebrate my joy, and faith with others.  I dance and sing to open my heart and to awaken the child within that is seeking to play and feel fully alive.  These experiences help me feel connected to God within. I am renewed in my mind, body and spirit. I am refreshed.

As I am aware of my Oneness with God, I feel the Divine energy flowing through me.  I am receiving the love of God in my heart and I am truly grateful.  I rest in total faith this prayer is already answered. I release, and I let go.  And so it is.  Amen

This Week's Quote: “Every moment is thought. Every thought is prayer. Every prayer is answered.  The answer is always “Yes”    Larry Larson

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer

I Listen to My Inner Wisdom

I declare there is a Power in the universe that is greater than I am, and I use it.  As I move through my day, I am totally aware of Spirit within, guiding and directing me.  I am divinely liberated, knowing I am one with God and use  It to create my experiences.

My thought creates my world and ignites the blessings I receive in manifest form.  Each moment is a marvelous opportunity to take responsibility for my actions and know there are no accidents in my life.  I am exactly where I am because of my thought.  There is absolutely nothing limiting or restricting my health, love, abundance, or peace.  I am conscious of the good that surrounds me.  I remind myself to remember I am always at choice.  I step into a new expressing of being as each new thought allows me to evolve and claim the gift of life God provides in each moment.  I listen to my inner wisdom.

I am eternally grateful for where I am. And in joyous anticipation, I celebrate, expect, and accept the demonstration of my thought flowing to me now.  Law always says yes.  I feel it with dep trust and faith.  And so it is.  Amen.
