I STOP DREAMING OF GOOD AND START PRODUCING GOOD
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
We are the producers of the works of God. Mind’s only conscious outlet is through man, and this means definite, specific work on our part. Dreams and visions are of little value unless brought forth into visibility in this world. Ideas without forms through which to operate are inconceivable to those who know the Law of Mind. Nebulous thinking produces nebulous results. Generalizations may sound well to the ear, but not until practical application has been made do they help to lift the race of men. God as our inner life, love, intelligence and capacity to produce is an actual God. Our lips may declare our belief in God, but our bodies and affairs show the proof of what we really know. We may glibly talk metaphysics and remain sick, unhappy and limited. When we practice metaphysics we demonstrate that we really know the One Mind and Its processes, and good is produced.
Today I am going to prove my beliefs in the supremacy of Spirit, and of Its indwelling action as life, health, power and beauty. I am showing to the world my true understanding of Truth. I state that God is my life, and I prove it by speaking and doing only those things which are wise and true. I affirm spiritual prosperity, and refuse to discuss, envision or fear lack. I believe God’s presence is in all men, and I shall find some good in each person I meet. When night comes, I shall go to sleep knowing that to my best knowledge, I have been faithful to Him in whom I have believed.
