A New Year – A new way to start your day   Leave a comment

_E0A0144-2“New Year’s can bring enthusiasm for new beginnings, starting fresh, taking stock of progress, and embarking on goals.”

Lindsey Biggs tells how she was accustomed to sleeping as long as possible, grabbing a cup of coffee, and getting on the road to school or work. But when she took a course in Christian Science healing, where she learned about her relationship to God she began to wake up enthusiastically, wanting to discover through prayer more about her true, spiritual identity. She would rise earlier than needed so as to have time to pray before starting her day.

“To me, this special time to pray each morning has been one of the greatest gifts. Each time is different; it’s about listening for the way God is revealing Himself to me each day.”….

“The inspiration I’ve gained from God, divine Life and Truth itself, during these mornings has given me such peace, confidence, and joyful expectancy that it’s totally changed my outlook for the day. It’s also brought healing of illness and injury, and resolution to problems.”……

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, shares this in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,  “The human mind, imbued with this spiritual understanding, becomes more elastic, is capable of greater endurance, escapes somewhat from itself, and requires less repose. A knowledge of the Science of being develops the latent abilities and possibilities of man. It extends the atmosphere of thought, giving mortals access to broader and higher realms. It raises the thinker into his native air of insight and perspicacity” (p. 128).

We can change our habits and the way we think as the book of Romans in the Bible says: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (12:2, New Living Translation).
