Jesus Saved

Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. (Ephesians 2:7-10 - The Message)

I recognize that I am saved, today I ask that you HEAL ME so that I may HEAL others...

Today's ACIM lesson:

God's healing Voice protects all things today
Let us today attend the Voice for God, Which speaks an ancient lesson, no more true today than any other day Yet has this day been chosen as the time when we will seek and hear and learn and understand. Join me in hearing. For the Voice for God tells us of things we cannot understand alone, nor learn apart. It is in this that all things are protected. And in this the healing of the Voice for God is found.
Your healing Voice protects all things today, and so I leave all things to You I need be anxious over nothing. For Your Voice will tell me what to do and where to go; to whom to speak and what to say to him, what thoughts to think, what words to give the world. The safety that I bring is given me. Father, Your Voice protects all things through me.

An excerpt that speaks volumes to ME...as God REALLY imparted this concept to me a couple of years ago, my life has improved exponentially...still working it out in me but this concept creates true freedom...John Maxwell said it this way - you don't attract people based on what you want, you attract people based on who you are...Gandhi said it this way - be the change you want to see in the world...Deepak said it this way - what you see externally is a complete reflection of who you are internally...Scripture is full of the same concept...hmmm must be some truth here - seek out how this truth will manifest a better version of yourself...

Enjoy your day ALL...

About the author:
Tania Kotsos is the founder and author of Mind Your Reality. She has been studying mind power and the nature of reality for the last 15 years. After a successful 10 year career as an investment banker in the City of London, she decided to throw in the towel to pursue her dream of empowering people to transform their lives using the innate power of their mind.

Every single person in your life is a mirror – knowing this is the key to all successful relationships. Others are simply reflecting parts of your own consciousness back to you, giving you an opportunity to really see yourself.

The qualities you most admire in others are your own and the same goes for those qualities you dislike. To change anything in your relationships, be the change you want to see – it is the only relationship advice you will ever need to transform your relationships into the joyful experience they are meant to be.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall
The key to successful relationships is to recognize yourself in the other person. It is to come to know the Truth that everything and everyone is your mirror. Once you learn what it truly means to see yourself reflected back at you, then there is no room for blame, there is no room for judgment and there is no room to feel like a victim of another person’s actions or words. There is only room for real love based on understanding and gratitude.

Compromise comes easy, forgiveness is a given and growth is inevitable. While this Truth applies to all of your relationships – from your family, to your friends and colleagues, and even to those you deem your “enemy” – it is your relationship with your significant other that enables you to take the closest, most accurate look at who you are.

Law of Attraction is Universal, and every person is affected by it. And it is always true that what I think and what I feel and what I get are always a match, and there is not a person on the planet that did not know that when they were born, and there is not a person on the planet that would not benefit by knowing it. But many, many, many are not yet asking and therefore are not yet ready for the answer. And so, we would say that -- although everyone wants this information -- everyone is not necessarily ready for it. We would not spend any time trying to convince anybody of anything because if they're not asking, your answers are just irritating.

--- Abraham

Once we were alienated from God and were enemies in our mind because of our evil behavior. But now he has reconciled us by Christ’s physical body through death (Colossians 1:21-22). When we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son (Romans 5:10). He himself bore our sins in his body on the Cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds we have been healed (1 Peter 2:24). God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross (Colossians 2:13-14). Christ died for sins once and for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring us to God (1 Peter 3:18). In him we were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature (Colossians 2:11). We are told in Galatians 5:16to “Walk in the Spirit, and we not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”
