12/31: Trend setting

12/31: Trend setting

  1. Thank you Suzanne for this wonderful and timely Lift. Keeping our thoughts aligned with God, good, and not with whatever the popular trend may be, is essentially what Christian Science is all about. Allowing the light of the Christ into our consciousness enables us to demonstrate over mortal beliefs, that are looking for unguarded thought to find lodgement. Mary Baker Eddy gives us the admonition "to come out from the material world and be separate." Our thinking makes it so. (see S&H page 451 for full quote)

  2. Thank you, Suzanne, for “Trend setting … where thought is going … every action and outcome actually begins in individual consciousness … the trend of God-governed thinking …” Wow!!! As God’s child, Jesus’ disciple, and a student of Christian Science, I am inspired to be committed (more than ever!) to spiritual trend setting.

    “… God created man ( me / us! ) in his own image …” (Gen 1:27) and "God is love" (I John 4).

    “Jesus said … Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law” (Matt 22:37-40).

    Mrs. Eddy wrote:

    “Christian Scientists, be a law to yourselves that mental malpractice cannot harm you either when asleep or when awake” (S&H 442:26).

    and …

    “GUIDANCE OF MEMBERS / A Rule for Motives and Acts” (Man 40:3).

    and …

    “… preserve a scientific, positive sense of unity with your divine source, and daily demonstrate this. Then you will find that one is as important a factor as duodecillions in being and doing right, and thus demonstrating deific Principle ... ‘one on God's side is a majority’" (Pul 4:9).

    (Online dictionary source: duodecillion - a cardinal number represented in the U.S. by 1 followed by 39 zeros ...)

  3. Thank you for this wise Daily Lift, Suzanne. May we all consciously trend Godward and see goodness everywhere every day.

  5. Thank you for this vital reminder that the real flow of thought is in a God-governed and a Divine economy. It can often be distracting to be swayed by the flow of some mass material contrivance or counterfeit which, although momentarily enticing and giddy, is not ever centered in the calm, comforting assurance and gentle goodness and purity, as the still small voice within.

  6. Thank you, Suzanne - happy new year ti you too.

  7. Dear Suzanne

    Thank you for you inspiring Daily Lift

    On this journey from sense to Soul, one has come to the realization that we are, ALL THE PRODUCT OF OUR OWN THINKING.
    This has helped me in ones day to day activities, that when one is not happy with what one is seeing, hearing and doing.WHEN ONE CHANGES THE THOUGHT THE PICTURE CHANGES.

    Oh how we are so blessed with Christian Science.

    All have a wonderful spiritual adventure.

    Love in Christ

    Peter.

  8. Dear Suzanne,

    Thank you for this Lift. Just yesterday I awoke pondering what my first thoughts are generally about. I realized that they were not as centred or happy as I wanted them to be. I decided I had to change all of that and this morning as I awoke I started to be careful of what I was thinking. I immediately cleansed my thinking toward something more spiritual and holy.

    This Lift helped to reinforce my thinking. I was in the process of copying the BibleLesson to my tablet so that I could listen to it as I go about a few chores in the kitchen. You are so right, you can govern your own thinking.

    You said that "The trend of God governed thinking will develop peace, goodness, opportunity- newly perceived but ALWAYS PRESENT" and I could not agree with you more. As a child I was always very guarded with my thought. I never listened to the TV or radio early in the morning, a practice I still follow today. I always awoke reading the lesson and listening to hymns as I got ready for school so that my thought would always be uplifted.

    As you spoke of "Trend Setting" I thought about how many of the trend setting predictions are often based on the past even if it is the past of the last hour. Our thinking is different, our thinking looks toward the horizon of God-governed activity where human activity has no effect. I have been working a lot with this as our country goes through some serious challenges.

    DL Team, Lifters & All have a blessed 2014!

  9. Living in society one becomes a trend watcher. We follow others in our education, in what to wear, what to eat, where to live, and even what to write about.

    We analyze where and why thought is going and so we mark an era.

    If every action begins in our own consciousness, shouldn’t we watch incessantly the trend of our own thought, analyze it and correct it, before we act?

    Shouldn’t we pray about everything before we act?

    The trend of human guided thinking will develop peace, goodness, opportunity: ever present.

    ESPAÑOL
    Viviendo en sociedad uno se convierte en un observador de tendencias. Seguimos a otros en nuestra educación, en qué ponernos, qué comer, dónde vivir, e incluso sobre qué escribir.

    Analizamos porqué y adónde se va el pensamiento y así marcamos una época.

    Si cada acción comienza en nuestra propia conciencia, ¿no deberíamos mirar incesantemente la tendencia de nuestro propio pensamiento, analizarlo y corregirlo, antes de actuar?

    ¿No deberíamos orar por todo antes de actuar?

    La tendencia del pensamiento humano guiado desarrollará paz, bondad, oportunidad: siempre presentes.

  10. Suzanne, Thank you.

  11. One of Mrs. Eddy's hymns comes to mind with this lift - the following lines:-

    "I will listen for Thy voice, lest my footsteps stray. I will follow and rejoice all the rugged way."

    Listening for God's voice and following the leadings of Truth and Love, will keep us safe, and enable us to help others our of following material trends which may become harmful if followed.

    Thank you for this reminder, and for the inspiring comments.

  12. Thank you for this great reminder to watch our thoughts and be sure that we listen and follow God's directions.. That way we get more things done.

  13. thanks,how grateful we are for all the''"LIFTERS"" always so timely & full of LOVE.HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

  14. Many thanks Suzanne for this wonderful "New Year's Resolution" for peace. "The trend of God governed thinking will develop peace, goodness and opportunity..." "In perfect peace, with tumult stilled,/ Enhavened where no storms arise,/ There man can work what God hath willed;/ The joy of perfect work his prize." {Christian Science Hymnal #93).

  15. Thanks so much, Suzanne. I try to contemplate the Manual By-Law "Alertness to Duty," daily, but this was my wake up call to do this, especially as today is going to be very busy. Happy new year to all!

  16. Thank you for clarifying what this holiday of beginning a New Year is about in spiritual terms instead of the all too familiar focus on the physical or material appearances. "Thou will be held in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee." May this peace which is the core of our being be acknowledged and shared by practicing the presence each day of this New Year.

  17. Rule for motives and acts Article 8 section 1 from the Manual comes to thought as trend setter. Thank you Suzanne.

  18. Wonderful! Thank you so much!!

  19. Dejarse guiar por el pensamiento inspirando, formar un muro alrededor de la consciencia, para que lo humano y material, las tendencias que germinan por doquier en una manifestación de ideas erroneas, que atrapan a la sociedad que se ve rodeada y fustigada con tanta oferta de buena vida, si hace o usa tal cosa, si sigue los cánones actuales de consumismo desenfrenado.

    Y por el otro lado, la serenidad, la perseverancia, en confianza en la más brillante idea, Cristo, que se desarrolla, en Una perpectua realidad, sí de buena vida, siguiendo los cánones de la Verdad, no con promesas fáciles, sino con esfuerzo, entrega, bondad, y que sí es certeza de buena vida, porque está apoyada en la mayor oferta de consumo, la del Amor, que es universal, trasciende por esa misma razón, porque ve el bien ajeno antes que el propio, no consume para si mismo, sino que da siempre en singular oferta, el Amor.

    Muchas gracias Suzanne, por el mensaje, la diaria tarea nos eleva a todos.

  20. Thank you for your clarity concerning "trends" and the contrast between the simplicity of the Christ, Truth and seeming complexity of mortal mind concepts. The contrast between individual consciousness and the mentally blind acceptance of mass mesmeric suggestions of human will.

    An inspiration to listen more carefully for God's directions and ideas. As Mary Baker Eddy wrote in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on page 563 - line 7: "...why should we stand aghast at nothingness." Also on page 581 - lines 4 - 7 "Angels. God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality."

    Again, thank you for the blessing, of uplifting inspiration, with a very timely topic. Happy ever-presence.

  21. I'm looking to see the trend for a higher sense of justice, honesty, care, humility, thoughtfulness, courage,and - a greater, more constant awareness of God's all active presence in myself and all of His perfect ideas - Thank you for a great kick off in beginning a new year this way. Hope you lecture in our area again this year!

  22. Thank you for this lift today. we are our thoughts and we can be guided rightly with God as the trendsetter.

  23. Thank you and all lifters - I am undiscribele thankful for this daily lifts.... I wish you and all a real blessed new year -and thanks again!

  24. “My angels are exalted thoughts, … With white fingers they point upward to a new and glorified trust, to higher ideals of life and its joys.” S&H 299:7

    Trend setters!

    Thank you Suzanne, for a trend setting New Year ’s Eve message! Onward and upward!!!

  25. Thank you Suzanne for this thought provoking lift. It fills my needs at this specific time.My gratitude for these daily lifts is boundless. Loving wishes for a New Year rich with blessings to all our global "Lifters" Lovingly, Dee

  26. Thanks, Suzanne. I always love your Lifts, and this one is both "big picture" and immediately practical.

    And, Lifters all, thanks for the deep and thoughtful comments so far. "Adhesion, cohesion, and attraction are properties of Mind, not matter" (that's from Science and Health, by Mary Baker Eddy).

  27. Earlier this morning I put one word into my daily log for 2014, THOUGHT. Here comes the DL with its unbelievable reinforcement.
    Yes, if there is one goal for 2014, it must be God-governed thinking.
    Good thoughts for all in the new year.

  28. Thanks, Suzanne, for getting us started out for the New Year on the right track. I'd like to add to Nela's (#2) and others quotes from Mary Baker Eddy, "Hold perpetually this thought, - that it is the spiritual idea, the Holy Ghost and Christ, which enables you to demonstrate, with scientific certainty, the rule of healing, based upon its divine Principle, Love, underlying, overlying, and encompasssing all true being." (Science and Health p. 496) I especially like the idea of being able to demonstrate "with scientific certainty." And further on she states on page 506, "Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear." We can, and must, rely on God to channel our thoughts and guide our actions. What a great resolution to make for the New Year!

  29. Thank you Suzanne. The best trend to follow is "the still small voice" that guides on the right path every moment/hour/day.
    A very blessed 2014 to the BOL, Nate and his great team, and all the Lift family.

  30. Perfect New Year's resolution--becoming a spiritual trend setter. Thank you Suzanne!

  31. Excellent, helpful on many levels.
    Thank you Suzanne.

  32. Predicting where something is going (a fashion, a disease, etc.) assumes change over time. But time is a human construct, not part of Reality. Perfection NOW is the basis of healing in Christian Science. A change of consciousness produces immediate benefits...time is not a factor.

    Many predictions are based on statistics...but to use descriptive statistics to predict the future is to believe in time/chance/odds/luck/accident, and it's a form of false prophecy, since no past or statistics based on a group description can predict any one individual's experience. Suzanne's Lift is a great wake-up call to resist predictions and simply watch thought, governing our own experience and blessing others, too.

  33. Happy New Year to all the Lifters and thank you so much for clarifying the path.Much Love and Blessings to all.

  34. Such a powerful Lift of thoughts to set our course for the New Year! Thank You, Suzanne! I remember hearing a motto the business world used several years ago.....and maybe still do: "Location, Location, Location." I was thinking this could apply to what Christian Science is all about, i.e. constantly checking in and asking, "Where is my thought located right now?" In Science and Health, p. 234, l. 25-26, Mrs. Eddy says: "Sin and disease must be thought before they can be manifested." My New Year's Resolution is to keep my thought trending and tending toward the Truth, no matter what this material world is spewing forth! Deep Gratitude and Love for All the Lifts, the DL Team, the Lecturers and the Lifters this past year! Wishing All a New Year of continued Spiritual Growth and Healing!! Much Love, Bevi xoxo!

  35. In this part of Australia, we have five minutes before the New Year, and people are gathering with friends and families to welcome in new opportunities and improved ways of thinking. But your Daily Lift, Suzanne, would give them just the start they need to welcome a whole new spiritual way of guarding and shepherding their thoughts.
    Well, here we are, a new moment in 2014! A happy New Year to all who watch and obey the thoughts of God and good.

  36. It is good to keep up to date on trends in the world, both good and bad, for we can support the good, and "hate evil" - apply the power of God where it is needed. Thank you Suzanne for supporting this introspective trend. I like the statement in Science and Health where Mary Baker Eddy, who set the trend for true spirituality states:
    "To ascertain our progress, we must learn where our
    affections are placed and whom we acknowledge and
    obey as God. If divine Love is becoming
    nearer, dearer, and more real to us, matter is
    then submitting to Spirit." (pg. 239, Footsteps of Truth)
    What is our "Spiritual Standpoint."?

  37. For anyone, who might not have easy-access to the Manual, here's "A Rule for Motives and Acts:"

    "Neither animosity nor mere personal attachment should impel the motives or acts of the members of The Mother Church. In Science, divine Love alone governs man; and a Christian Scientist reflects the sweet amenities of Love, in rebuking sin, in true brotherliness, charitableness, and forgiveness. The members of this Church should daily watch and pray to be delivered from all evil, from prophesying, judging, condemning, counseling, influencing or being influenced erroneously."

  38. Vital message - thank you, Suzanne! Gratitude to the DL Team, Lifters, and New Year blessings all!

  39. Best lift ever - and that's saying a lot! What a wonderful way to start the new year. Thank you and God bless all you Lifters. :)

  40. This wonderful message goes hand in hand with today's JSH-Online Daily Thought: "The divine understanding reigns, is all, and there is no other consciousness" (Science and Health p.536). True thought IS divine consciousness. How comforting to know that God's consciousness sets the trend for our thoughts. Thank you, Suzanne. Thank you, dear Mother Church.

  41. Gracias y muchas, por tu agradable mensaje. Justo y conciso es evidente que Dios y yo(cada uno de nosotros) somos mayoría.Progresos grandes para todos los Scientist,(sobre todo espirituales)

  42. Your messages get through, and with results. Trendiness certainly is no attribute of Principle is it, and God is Principle, the only lawgiver to man -- that principle of loving God and man on which hangs all the law -- not just any capricious rule. Righteousness and strength is not a trend always appreciated by 'peers', however, it is a God-given inalienable right of man. We have no choice to be influenced by anything other than Principle. Even the planets' orbits are held securely around the sun like man is strongly upheld by that all-loving Principle. Theories of material uncertainty are trendy. Principle, God, is the steady, constant, reliable proven fact. Principle no religious dogma, it is the ever-present Holy Ghost Comforter Mary Baker Eddy described as Christian Science.

  43. Mary Baker Eddy tells us "the time for thinkers has come..." this thinking coming out of the one Mind, our only Mind, not limited mind. It follows that all unlimited trends come out of this unlimited Mind.

  44. Many thanks, Suzanne! I like the idea that by aligning our thinking with the good from God, we become spiritual trendsetters - Nela, comment 2.
    That way we are counteracting unhappy social tendencies.

  45. "Trend of God governed thinking" wow!
    Moment by moment.
    Right with you
    Thanks

  46. Thank you, Suzanne, for this great way to begin the New Year!

  47. Newly perceived, but always present...joy in the New Year!!! Thank you, Suzanne!

  48. Thank you Suzanne!
    And a happy new year to All.
    What a great way to end this year and begin a new year!
    Blessings

  49. May all DL contributors, staff, and CS practitioners/teachers be blessed in the unfoldment of a new year that sets a trend for greater spirituality globally.

  50. Thank you Suzanne for your reminder to discipline our thought.
    In "Science and Health" Mrs. Eddy explains over and over to: "Let the perfect model be present in your thoughts instead of its demoralized opposite. This spiritualization of thought lets in the light and brings the divine Mind, Life...into your consciousness"(407). Allowing eternal divine Mind to be firm in consciousness, gives us an omnipresent "porter at the door of thought" with which to meet the vagaries of mortal consciousness "trends" and the mortal world.
    "'Lo I am with you alway, watch and pray'" (MBE "Mother's Evening Prayer").

    Thank you to everyone this year who has contributed to The Daily Lift; such a necessary forum for each of us worldwide to express our God-given, God directed, united Christian Science thought. We have so much to be grateful for!

  51. And Happy New Year to you too, to the DL team who puts these on and to everyone who responds. Thanks. This left is just right for looking into what we call, a new year.

  52. Super. Thank you, Suzanne! Happy New Year all.

  53. Yes! Me, too -- love the "Newly perceived, but always present." What a beautiful, fearless and mindful unfolding of Life we have. Thank you, Suzanne

  54. S~~ Thank you for this "boost". It will be helping me to raise the bar in my thoughts - steering them
    above the mind clutter, that is make- believe. A Great New Year to you/jim.

  55. Thank you Suzanne, nos,1 and 3. Beautiful, beautiful
    Happy New Year dear ones all

  56. Thank you, Suzanne, for this wonderful thought-provoking Lift. What a great way to view each day of the new year. And thank you, fellow Lifters, for all of the quotes and great ideas. Here is another that I have always liked. It has been on the board in my college Sunday School class for years. "Watch your thoughts, and see whether they lead you to God and into harmony with His true followers." (Mary Baker Eddy in First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, page 213.) Like eagles we can watch from the higher perspective of Truth and Love, and be leaders and trend-setters in the Way. Much love to all...

  57. terrific!

  58. "God, the most powerful trend setter." WOW! So many thanks.

  59. A perfect message that helps everyone realize freedom from "majority thinking" and our divine right to express individual reflection of divine Mind. Thank you!!! And to add to what has already been said so well,
    Thank you to the DL team, one and all!

  60. What a wonderful, inspiring Lift! Thank you, Suzanne. As usual, there are so many great comments from fellow Lifters, and special points to ponder from those and the Lift itself. Between the weekly Bible Lessons, the daily Lifts, all the periodicals accessible online and in print, and all the other resources we have for daily spiritual pondering, there is much to be grateful for. And of course, for God's great love for all creation, His/Her everpresence, guidance, maintenance and support of us all. Much love, and happy new year!

  61. Wonderful lift for New Year's Eve . . . thank you!

  62. Happy new Year to you Suzanne. Thank you for a great start to the New Year!

  63. Thanks you Suzanne for the wonderful thought and way to start the new year. I will not forget it.

  64. And at this time of resolutions for the coming year, resolving to "Bring every thought to the captivity of Christ" might be the best one we can make. I love that the word "resolute" is the verb form of "resolution," and so I shall endeavor to be resolute in guarding my thought until it conforms to the "perfection of holiness," the Kingdom of Heaven in man. Thanks so much, Suzanne.

  65. In her Christmas sermon 1988 Eddy wrote " and what of this child. - " For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder."
    This child, or spiritual idea, has evolved a more ready ear for the overture of angels and the scientific understanding of Truth and Love."
    Christmas evolves a ready ear for angel messages. thanks Suzanne for your trend setting angel message as we listen with ready ears for God's thoughts.

  66. Thank you All. I feel so blessed by this Lift and all the inspiring comments.
    Wishing All "A blessed and love filled timeless New Year".
    Avis

  67. Wow Suzanne, you have started us off on a wonderful pathway into 2014 and beyond...I never make resolutions BUT this time I am. I resolve to speak with God each morning when I awake, asking Him to help me stay conscious Only of His thought, His ideas, His ways of handling the moments of my day. My great desire is to see things as God sees them, and to stay strong in resisting ANY thought that has even a hint of being limiting, unloving, unkind, dishonest, jealous, causing injury to another in any way, to the point where I can put my spiritual sign up which reads..."Thought Closed to any false mortal thought...Filled up Full with God's All Good" ... "no space available"!!!!
    With God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!!!! I want to draw from this FACT and pray for all things needing the light of God's Christ to come into thought, which will change anything that needs changing....we have a Promise from our dear Father / Mother God who IS Love, of this....let's all make a commitment to help by only seeing, acknowledging, acting upon, Knowing in consciousness what God KNOWS, which is Truth, good, joy, happiness, honesty, for All His children!!!!! I can promise everyone, the outcome will be a wonderful 2014!!!!
    "Hats off and toot toot" to All God's spiritual ideas, representing Him in His true light and shining this light through your understanding, and actions in you lives for the whole world to see forever!!!! A good goal!!
    This is a special Lift, and comments for sure!

  68. Wonderful lift Suzanne. Thank you so much for giving us a new perspective on trends that brings clear understanding. When hearing about trends, we can recognize mortal thought and instead turn to Divine Mind's ideas. What a vauable fresh look at rejecting mesmerism and letting angel thoughts guide and create our trend. Of course with God, as we step away from matter and transcend time, there is only the perfect NOW.

    I want to thank the other lifters too for their insights. There are so many precious ideas and quotes from S&H or other works of Mary Baker Eddy in this thread today.

    I realized as 2013 draws to an end, I can folllow Mrs. Eddy's instruction, SH 261:4 “Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts.” I can do this when remembering 2013 events which erases any error that went unnoticed in my thought. And, I can do it while being in today's moment and as I look forward to the future. Infinite blessings!

    Happy New Year to Y'All!!

  69. Suzanne, I just love the thought of not getting caught up with "mass" trends and lean on God's governed trend. This puts a huge smile on my face/thought because the idea of being on track with our Father-Mother God is our divine right. I love to think that I am an individual idea created and designed by Him to be a leader and let my light shine instead of being a follower of this mortal existence. Thank you God.

  70. Thank you for this helpful New Year "lift' gift.

  71. So many wonderful thoughts, thank you all for sharing. God Bless

  72. A BIG THANK YOU SUZANNE, LOVE AND BEST WISHES TO ALL THROUGH OUT THE NEW YEAR

  73. Thank you Suzanne for helping me leave the thought of New Year's resolutions behind as I look to my own sense of God-trending ideas for 2014!

  74. Thank you Suzanne for this clear resolution possibility of being aware of, present with ".God governed thinking." To do so will surely bring up "newly perceived, but always present" as ongoing spiritual learning and unfodment.

    Thank you Lift Team and international Lifters for such a beautiful and loving year of sharing. Onward and upward in 2014!!

  75. Thankyou Suzanne,Lifters and Lift Team....So much in this lift,may the trend continue..love to all

  76. Thank you so much, Suzanne, for reminding us that as we watch the trend of our own thoughts- God/Mind
    guided, we can't follow worldly based trends.
    Happy New Year!

  77. I really appreciated this clear and helpful Daily Lift. It is important to remember to watch the trend of our own thoughts in every situation: reaction to news, at church, at work, when reading, when eating, when communicating with others--so many opportunities! We can never be bored. :-)

  78. I love that replies from all around the world show we are all in sync. Thank you Suzanne.

    Wishing you a Happy and Joyful New Year.

  79. Wouldn't be great if every one followed a spiritual based Trend setting by putting God first in all human endeavors?
    Guess what? When we do that we'll find that human accomplishments will always come out successfully without stress.
    By TOBIAS A. WEISSMAN

  80. To all you Lifters and those who are simply enjoying listening and reading the thoughts others are having--the power of spiritually turning thought to a higher good and realizing it is everyone's right to know it--- how wonderful is that! The world is a better place for Lifters and listeners! I join all of you in being so grateful for the good that has been expressed here, this year. And for the good that will continue to expand and enrich each one's lives. Thank you for sharing your insights, even in a time of busyness. It is significant of Christly thought --- to share. You do a great job of it! Happy New Year!

  81. Have just realized - perhaps the last one to do so - that the incessant chatchatchat is none other than the Babylonian Empire that overthrew Israel! Babble-on! And how can we hear the still, small voice of God, when there is so much babbling going on? And we do need to be alert to, and obediently respond to that wonderful unmistakable voice of Love and Truth.
    Thank you again Suzanne for your Lift and urging us to stay with "God-governed thinking leading us to peace, goodness, opportunity, newly perceived but always present!"

  82. The very helpful, very healing ideas in this packed, substantial presentation will be a pleasure to ponder. Suzanne, your lift is like the light that each listener holds up to an individual, beautiful prism. The result: a glorious spectrum of sharing. Happy New Year everyone, and much love!

  83. Thank you Suzanne after listening to your DL and reading others comments I was reminded of what Mrs Eddy says in Mis pg 210
    "Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Life, Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them. It is plain that nothing can be added to the mind already full. There is no door through which evil can enter, and no space for evil to fill in a mind filled with goodness. Good thoughts are an impervious armor; clad therewith you are completely shielded from the attacks of error of every sort. And not only yourselves are safe, but all whom your thoughts rest upon are thereby benefited". My mum had this quote printed on a card sitting on her kitchen window sill, as a daily reminder. Have a 'Soul filled' new year Suzanne and
    all DLifters.

  84. thank You so much.?a reminder to watch my thoughts better.
    I love these uplifts, and thankful to God for You .

  85. and, Hapy New Year, Suzanne!

  86. Wonderful insights and helpful perspective to start a New Year. Thank you for this inspiring message.

  87. thank you suzanne

  88. Suzanne, your Lift just makes so much spiritual & practical sense! It's a happy privilege to listen and glean ideas from it. To the worldwide family of Lifters --- thank-you! And to the DL team --- your wonderful production teamwork is very much appreciated! Happy Continuous New Year One & All!

  89. What a powerful idea!

  90. Great Lift!! Thank you!

  91. Powerful, and so appropriate for the New Year! Thanks so much, Suzanne.

  92. Hi Suzanne. Your 'Lift' was so helpful this morning. My netbook computer had got caught in some sort of software loop and would not do anything! I prayed about this and the thought came, "Take the battery out and let it power up again". That's what the refreshment of Spirit does for each of us. Brian Weatherhogg (17) and kerry (91) and all the other comments show the continuity of the Love of God. The spiritual sense of the Lord's Prayer on pages 16 and 17 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy is a really powerful 'trend setter' for each day and moment. Thank you and the whole team family.

  93. Thank you.

  94. Absolutely lovely. This is something we must all do.

  95. Nice Suzanne...
