As we enter into the season of Thanks-Giving, I have been thinking about how grateful I am for all the many ways I have been blessed in this life. My blessings have been many, but I would like to take some time to consider those that have been brought to me though the movement called Unity.
I recall my first visit to Unity Christ Church, and how I felt so grateful as I listened to the Sunday Lesson and realized I had just found my Spiritual home. At that moment, I knew that I was truly blessed. I even recall the first class in metaphysic I attended and the warm feelings of love I received as I listened so intently to the Ideas and information that was being imparted to me, at that time I thought, “I have surely found Heaven”. What a marvelous feeling it was to be in a place where I felt loved and accepted unconditionally.
I am truly thankful and grateful for the inspirational writings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, Co-Founders of Unity. It feels as though each time I read their words, I am lifted into another state of consciousness that I have never experienced before. It is as if they are present with me now imparting their Wisdom in a most profound way. I find that their thoughts and words are alive with the Spirit of the Presence of God; and at these times I am truly grateful.
How grateful I was as I began to become aware, to know and understand that the Christ resides in the very center of my Being; and what a miracle to know that I could access this Presence Within me at anytime. How wonderful I felt and how thankful I became as the Still Small Voice Within began to announce it Presence to me.
I am particularly grateful for all the many delightful Beings of Light I have met on my Spiritual quest; and for the awareness; understanding and knowing that they are a part of me. As I see each face reflected back to me I experience my Oneness with everyone I meet. And for the ability to discern this connection, I give Thanks.
I am truly thankful and grated for the Presence of God Within me and the ability to feel and experience that Presence as living in, through me and as me. I am truly thankful for my willingness to allow this to be so.
I am immensely grateful for the Grace of God that brought me to this place called Unity, because it has made all the difference in my experience of life. And for this I give all glory to God.
So as we celebrate the season of Thanks-Giving let us take a thorough inventory of the many ways we have been blessed by Spirit and let us choose to become thankful and grateful in all things.
Let Us Daily Affirm: I Am Thankful and Grateful in All Things.
Blessings As You Spiritually Unfold,
