I AM ALIVE WITH THE CLEAN, FRESH LIFE OF SPIRIT
There if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold all things are become new.
II Corinthians 5:17
The Bible reminds us that it is the essential nature of God to ever renew and ever revitalize His creation. “Behold, I make all things new.” This great healing, energizing activity is around us as a vital Presence and within us as a vital Life. We did not create it, neither does our food, nor our exercise and play create it. It is an impersonal gift from the Universal Spirit. Our food habits, our sleep, and our times of exercise merely keep the channels open for It to function through us more efficiently. We are endowed with life, health and vitality by the Creative Principle of Being. It is ours. We either use it rightly and are healthy and fresh at all times, or we misuse it and are sick and depressed. It is our individual responsibility. Knowing the power of thought, we keep our minds filled with the idea of a fresh, clean life that is forever welling up within us and seeking releasement by means of us.
Divine Life can never grow stale, grow old, or wear out. I know that God’s life is in me as my life now. It is an endless stream of clean, fresh, vital energy. It fills every cell and organ of my body with its healing presence. I am renewed this day by the Life of Spirit working in and through me. I am refreshed as I speak this word and know this truth. I joyously respond to fresh life, and it joyously responds to me and is working in every part of my body. I dedicate my thinking to this youth-giving Life of God. Old conditions have now passed away, and fresh life is pouring through my being. I am energized and vitalized by God.
