a slice of SOM

the following comes from 365 Science of Mind (SOM), a year of daily wisdom from Ernest Holmes. this is the 20th of April's reading. i like it. and it gives a good insight on how we think of God...

I Honor the Presence of God

If I honour myself, my honour is nothing:
it is my Father that honoureth me.-john 8:54

If I honor myself alone, not realizing that I am one with the Divine Presence, then I shall quickly exhaust the small portion of good that I, as a human being, can at anyo one moment contain. But if I honor the Presence of God in me, of God around and through me, of God in and through everything, then I am indeed honoring the Presence of God, for One Spirit is over all, in all and through all, and One Presence is all. There can be no separation from this Presence, no apartness, no division. It is one, complete and total, equally distributed and everywhere available. To feel this Presence in things, in people and in human events, and to sense that it is all-inclusive, is to honor God and to provide in one's own self a place where the Divine can go forth anew into creation.
.... Today I am honoring the Presence of God. I feel God's eauty in the rose-tinted dawn and in the glow of the evening sunset. In the flower I find the loveliness of God's beauty. In the mountains I see God's strength. In the quiet of eveningtime I feel God's Presence. And throughout the night I know that this Presence blankets me; therefore, I sleep in peace and wake in joy and live in a consciouness of good. Seeing God in others, I enter into companionship with the Divine in all people. In the outstretched hand, in the smile of recognition, and in the warm embrace of friends, I feel the One Presence, the One Power, and the One Life. And so I give thanks-with a song in my heart and with a joy unspeakable I give thanks to this Presence. May I evermore embrace and be embraced by the love, the beauty, and the goodness of God.

Have a blessed day my friends!....HUGZ>
