Start today, and everyday, with this fact: you are loved. This is not because a person loves you, but because the Holy Bible, God’s own Word, declared it — God loves you.
With this simple idea, a strong basis and reason to be grateful, each of us can easily throw off the chains of whatever tries to impede our progress, hope, or improved health.
The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
—Jeremiah 31:3 (NKJV)
Let us rid ourselves of the belief that man is separated from God, and obey only the divine Principle, Life and Love. Here is the great point of departure for all true spiritual growth.
