  1. Thank you Lorenzo for this Lift filled with hope and the assurance that when we turn away from the material view of life, and turn our thought to God, we can expect change. Just as we don't heal by focusing on matter, people and places don't determine our true happiness. Mary Baker Eddy says in S&H, page 60, "Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping, if sought in Soul." What a wonderful guide this is in our journey! Thank you again.

  2. What a refreshing, revitalizing, up-Lift-ing perspective on the infinite supply of all good! Thank you.

  3. Lovely message, and so helpful, Lorenzo. Thank you!

  4. Perception could prompt one to receive that gentle nudge toward developing more grace, that is, an attitude of gratitude. Thanks, Lorenzo, for this reminder to "Give us this day our daily blessings."

  5. I've always loved this thought - the universality and impartiality of Divine Love. Thanks for this lift Lorenzo.

  6. Many thanks Lorenzo for this very inspiring advice. Yes. "Change how we feel about our needs, from being met by something or someone, to being met by God, who dispenses His love impartially, universally and infinitely." "O holy presence, that stills all our demanding,/ O love of God, that needs but to be known!/ Heaven is at hand, when thy pure touch persuades us,/ Comfort of God, that seeks and finds His own." (Christian Science Hymnal #174).

  7. Lorenzo, Thank you.

  8. Thank you Lorenzo. Very helpful message. God will take care of us. We must seek the kingdom of heaven within. Focus on God and not the outward appearances.

  9. Thank you so much for that Up-lift, Lorenzo - pointing thought in the right - the healing - direction, away from the mortal concept. Such a good reminder!

  10. grazie Lorenzo meraviglioso !!!

  11. ". . . impartially, universally, and infinitely". Yes, yes,yes! That is how divine Love meets ALL our needs, -- daily,hourly, continually. Always has, always will. Yea verily. The Master taught us truly.

  12. Thank you for the gentle way you explained what we need to do.

  13. Thank you for such a clear and lovely message to start from the 'inside out' (safe, pure, loved and secure) and not from the 'outside in' of our thinking.

  14. Thank you Lorenzo yes we are all on a journey no matter what it is .It is a complete trust knowing that God is with you all the way . The Daily lift got me thinking about when I was in my fifties my family were grown up I was doing voluntary work caring for children of Special needs when I was asked to do a couple of CS nursing courses in Western Australia with a very patient loving CS nurse . That was 1992 and I thought well that was my journey Ha how wrong was I . My hubby said to me we are going to Africa and onto England all expenses paid wow I thought . We'll I had to sign some papers and I couldn't do it . My hubby said what's wrong I said I can't go . He said why I said I don't know . It all opened up to me that I was going to go to America to Tenacre to do a nursing course . I headed of the same day my hubby went to Africa . Like me at times we don't know where our Journey will take us but we do know that when we trust our Father Mother God it will all work out .

  15. We worry about everything.
    Our help does not come from something or somebody, we already have it with us.

    Jesus said, "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." Luc. 17:20, 21

    I seem to solve the toughest problems when I realize that I am not in charge but God is, the problem seems to vanish!

    Now, if I could fully trust before the trouble escalate!

    Nos preocupamos por todo.
    Nuestra ayuda no viene de algo o de alguien, ya la tenemos con nosotros.

    Jesús dijo, "El reino de Dios no vendrá con advertencia, ni dirán: Helo aquí, o helo allí; porque he aquí el reino de Dios está entre vosotros." Lucas 17:20, 21

    Pareciera que yo resuelvo los problemas más difíciles cuando me doy cuenta de que yo no estoy a cargo sino Dios ¡el problema parece desaparecer!

    Ahora, si tan sólo pudiera confiar plenamente antes de que el problema escale!

  16. Thank you.

  17. Really excellent, concise and clear! Thank you!! It certainly was what I needed to hear.

  18. Thank you This is just what I needed today. I know that God directs and protects us in all our ways.

  19. Wonderful ... yes, today, I will seek the Kingdom of Heaven first! Thank you for this clear message - it made my day !

  20. Perfect. Thank you!

  21. Thank you Lorenzo! And thank you E G, #14, for showing us how to listen humbly for the divine planning of our own journey. To quote a comment from another lifter of weeks ago, " we may have many years, but we have no age." There is no limit, no number, to our journey because our number is infinite! I just love how we each 'impartially, universally and infinitely" help each other along the way saying exactly what another needs to 'feel and know'. And our journey continues! =D(that is me with bugs in my teeth as I continue on my joy filled journey!)

  22. Very Healing. Thank You, Lorenzo.

  23. Wow! Just the message that I needed! Thank you!

  24. Worrying is ingratitude before you allow the good to happen! Loved it! Thank you!

  25. Thanks very much. This wonderful lift will be my food for today - rich and sustaining!

  26. It's like you read my Mind... ie we're on the same page of that little Book open for all to read.

  27. Thank you very, very much!!!

  28. Recognising that God loves each one of us, individually and collectively on one all embracing 'hug' is a wonderful comfort. Thank you for this LIft today. At out little testimony service last night we shared together how, through prayer, we can support our community and friends to know this Truth of being. Especially during what appears to be suggestions of fear, of smog, or poisonous atmosphere blowing in the weather.What appears outside cannot touch that which is holy,perfect and within. "In Him we live and move and have our Being" Today our air is clearing, just as our mental picture is clear. Thank you for all those who share and support the BoL, and the Daily Lift. It is such a precious outreach.x

  29. Mary Baker Eddy tells us "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures p.494. Thank you Lorenzo for your special Lift, I really needed this, this morning.

  30. A wonderful "Lift"! It reminds me of an article I loved years ago by Geoffrey Barratt - "Right the Inward, Fix the Outward," October 23, 1976 Sentinel. Thank you.

  31. Thank you Lorenzo for a wonderful "lift".

  32. Thank you for a wonderful message/reminder to stay focused on what's real.

  33. Beautiful reminder and I'm so grateful.

  34. Lorenzo, thanks so much for today's Lift. It certainly changed my thought of looking to humans to make my life be ok. Now I have a new lens for today and will look to God for each thought.

  35. Just beautiful, Lorenzo. You expressed Truth so clearly…thank you!

  36. what a healing message,Dear Lorenzo Gracias Gracias !!!!!!

  37. Wonderful ,, thank you ! : - )

  38. This is a great Lift and so helpful for today. Thank you for the reminder that all our needs are met, and that we have all from within the Kingdom -- and to keep our focus there. Really appreciate your sharing this.

  39. Thank you for this clear, inspiring lift. The reminder to look to God, to the Kingdom of Heaven within to begin our thoughts about issues facing us and the world. Just what I needed to hear this morning.

  40. This is clear, focused, and very helpful, as are all your sharings, Lorenzo. Thank you very much.

    Look forward to hearing you when you lecture in Buellton, CA.

  41. Inspired! Thank you Lorenzo.

  42. such a timely and comforting message! Thanks Lorenzo, Maria

  43. Thank You for this Beautiful reminder

  44. Wow, Lorenzo, you couldn't have made it much clearer! Indeed, the message Jesus brought to the world was to not give any credence to the material picture, but to turn so deeply within to the God presence we all have been graced with, that we experience a repentance, a reformation so complete, that our outward experience is made whole and harmonious. Isn't this the true Journey we are All on? "Take my life, and let it be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee." C.S. Hymn #324. Thanks again and Much Love to All!

  45. Thank you, Lorenzo, for “The journey: part 6 … look first for the kingdom of God … within us … change the inside picture … God … dispenses His love impartially, universally, and infinitely.”

    I needed this reminder today! From a human standpoint, it’s not easy to stay always in the “kingdom-of-God” consciousness and live out from the Truth of our being; and yet it’s necessary in overcoming “every ill that flesh is heir to,” with Christianly scientific certainty. It takes the profound and pure trust of a child. Jesus was as that child, living under unceasing prayer and unwavering obedience. Jesus called us to follow his example.

    In Science and Health, under the marginal heading, “Man’s genuine being” (91:10), Mrs. Eddy wrote, “… the sooner error is reduced to its native nothingness, the sooner man's great reality will appear and his genuine being will be understood ...” The “strongholds" and "strong holds” against me, mine, and all – just falling away to nothingness!

    “Glory be to God, and peace to the struggling hearts! Christ hath rolled away the stone from the door of human hope and faith, and through the revelation and demonstration of life in God, hath elevated them to possible at-one-ment with the spiritual idea of man and his divine Principle, Love. (S&H 45:16)

    “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

  46. Oh, Lorenzo, your message really met an immediate need — for myself and others. Deep thanks.

  47. Yes, beautiful. Thank you.

  48. I really enjoyed your lift. Thanks!

  49. Thank you, Lorenzo. I'll strive to carry the comfort of God's provision throughout this day.

    Thank you, Malcolm, #6.

  50. Perfect! Thank you!

  51. Many, many thanks Lorenzo for this wonderful and
    helpful lift. God is in the drivers seat, so we have
    no other choice but to let Him/Her handle and
    control our journey. We all are journeying together.
    We must keep looking to God.

    "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting
    to everlasting. A-men, and A-men". Psalms 41:13

    Thanks to all for the inspiring comments.

  52. Thank you so much for this beautiful Lift Lorenzo. It's just what I needed today. I will dwell in God's kingdom and know that all is harmonious within and the outside will reflect that.
    Gratitude and love to all on Nate's team and to all the commentators.

  53. Thank you for this precious lift Lorenzo!! Once we align our thoughts with God, the goodness just unfolds. God does all the work. As you said, it all begins inwardly, not outwardly. We are so blessed that the kingdom of God is already within us and that what is natural for us is to be how God made us to be. There's no better gift!

  54. Thank you so much 21 for reminding me I did leave out the important part God knows no age and so neither did I . The interesting part about me going to Tenacre was that I didn't become a CS nurse my daughter in Queensland did and for this I was so gratefull . I love reading all the comments and learn so much from you all . Love to all .

  55. Dear Lorenzo,

    Thank you for your wonderful thoughts. Many years ago I was taught that, "Perception is projection." We are actually looking inside and then projecting these thoughts on the world. How important it is, then, to turn to God for our every thought, and think on only those things, and see only those things when we look about us. Thank you so much.

  56. Loved this Lift, very helpful, but am I missing something???what's the significance of the "...Part 6" in the title?

    Daily Lift Team
    Lorenzo has five previous Lifts in a series titled "The journey." Here is a link to past Daily Lifts by Lorenzo. The most recent 'journey' Lift is on the second page.

  57. Such a great lift, it does lift me up and I am so grateful for the inspiration and the way you deliver those truths.

  58. Thank you Lorenzo

  59. Gracias querido amigo!! Hermoso lift!!

  60. Beautiful message today. Woke up this morning with mind racing and knew I had to to "stand porter at the door of thought" . . . and this Lift REALLY spoke to me. Now I'm ready to start my day! Thank you, Lorenzo and the Daily Lift community.

  62. Thank you Lorenzo for directing us to our true source,lifting us to look to Gods' blessings daily that they meet all our needs not person but God who is infinite Love, how can we chisel out where our supply comes from that is a limit from human mind not divine. Thank you for this reminder of Infinite Love.

  63. I've really gained such a lot from each of these Steps of the Journey, Lorenzo. You have really stripped them down to the essential facts necessary for the Scientific Healing Treatment. The false belief can appear to be so much whatever we accept of oneself, that should be impersonally seen for what it is - a mirage! The water doesn't have to drain away, and the shimmering is not an ocean. It is just the belief of an illusion. It has no life, or truth, or intelligence because it doesn't exist. That is what we understand and accept as true.
    Many thanks to you Nate and the team, and to The Mother Church; and to our Lift family worldwide.

  64. Very helpful. Thank you.

  65. Great message. THX again for all you do! You are much appreciated !

  66. Thank you, Lorenzo!

  67. WOW! Thank you Lorenzo for this Lift. I kept looking for a buyer for house-property on beautiful Saginaw Bay, so I can move north. This week's Lesson opened my mind to the "tares and wheat," the tares were like looking/begging for a buyer and the wheat is seeking the Kingdom of Heaven. Now change the inside picture, my true dwelling place isn't mine, it is GOD. I am inspired by Luke 17:20-21.

  68. Adverse conditions and events often bring out the better nature in people. Faith or the intuitive trust in a benevolent higher power, God, is called into action, like using mathematics to solve a problem, or singing a song to overcome sorrow.
    Thank you Lorenzo, for this guidepost for our journey.
    It reminds me of C.S. hymn 64, "From sense to Soul my pathway lies before me,...." and includes the line, "My heart is singing: I have found the way".

  69. Thank you

  70. Exactly what I needed to hear today Lorenzo. A very hearty thank you.

  71. Such a needed and inspiring message. Thanks so much, Lorenzo. One of my favorite quotes from "The Message" by Eugene Peterson is Matthew 6:34: "Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." Since God is good, and only good, that's all that can really be going on - right now and always.

  72. That was a healing lift!

  73. Inspiring today ..... thank you.

  74. You have made my day as it came at the right time. I really need ed it to restore peace and harmony.

  75. Oh, what a wonderful observation of Spirit. Thank you for sharing!
    Tom in Mi.

  76. Gratitude Lorenzo, Reminding each of us the "path leads upward" it is up to me to listen and follow the path to great joy and peace. It is available each moment.

  77. Thanks for reminding me where to go immediately, thought of God, nothing else. Wherever we may roam, be it mentally or physically, we are always at home with God--no worries, cares or dispares.

  78. You are so right about how we tend to look to the outside picture to define opportunity. As we change the inside picture, everything changes too.

  79. Thanks you Lorenzo. Listening
    for pure, healthy thoughts.

  80. Thank you for this clear lift!

  81. Oh, how clear and concise! Thank you, Lorenzo! Sharon :-)

  82. Thanks for a beautiful message.

  83. So very wonderfully expressed, thank you Lorenzo.

  84. Just the Christ message I needed today..thanks, Lorenzo!

  85. Very healing lift ! Thank you so much !

  86. THANKS so much, mille grazie, muchas gracias...This was such a clear, simple statement, yet so profound! I played it a few times to make sure your words stayed in thought...Looking FIRST for the Divine, knowing that all our needs are being met right now and we are in our right place...

  87. Thanks so much, Lorenzo. Just the right thoughts for this day. Thanks also for the comments-especially No. 66.

  88. Thank you, Lotenzo! Thoughtful heart today and always.

  89. Change the inside picture! Great way to put it! Gracias, Lorenzo!


  91. Thanks Lorenzo, really lovely and wonderfully expressed in everyday language. I skimmed the comments but didn't see that anyone else asked this question. What do you mean by part 6. Have I missed 1-5? Would love an explanation.

  92. What a wonderful lift. Muchas gracias.

  93. thank you for showing every one that there is hope. john.colson age 13

  94. Hi Lorenzo, Happy to hear another segment of the Journey and to know how and where our desires are truly fulfilled. What is required is our acceptance of true contentment right where we are! Thank you.

  95. Thank you!!!

  96. I loved this message, Lorenzo. I'll try to send it to my Bro'.
    Bless you, dear guy!

  97. This is exactly what I needed.
    Thank you so much for this message, it's so helpful!

  98. Thank you for this gentle, loving lift today. I do need it.

  99. Good reminders, Lorenzo!! Thank you.

  100. Thank You, Lorenzo. I appreciate your explanation of the Bible verses and how to make use of them in our everyday life.

  101. Wonderful. Thank you! :-)

  102. Thanks so much Lorenzo, for the wonderful strengthening message. Going up higher, turning to God instead of human opinions and maybe what were used to is indeed listening humbly. Blessed are the poor in spirit, ( humble, ready to listen, eager to hear and follow) for theirs is the kingdom of God.

  103. Thanks for a very reassuring message, Lorenzo.

  104. Wonderful! Thank you!

  105. What a wonderful daily lift and what a wonderful docket of gratitude in all these comments.

  106. Thank you!
    I woke this morning with a sense of peace.
    Now your Lift has focused my thought on it's source.
    I am so very grateful for this ♥

  107. Lorenzo, Thank you so much! This is exactly what I needed to hear to put all confidence in God' might and presence. I didn't take time to listen it at the right moment but I'm so grateful I'm doing it now.

  108. Life is one continuous journey. It leads us to that one goal, to understand God's ever forgiving goodness. Each part of that journey, is part of that goal. Once a part is understood, another journey starts until the journey reaches the completed revelation. If there's any obstacles in the way such as machoness, discord, self-love it is removed by selfless prayer as taught in C/S.

  109. I am grateful for this wonderful, clear inspiration. Thank You.

  110. This Lift contains just the ideas I need to share with a friend. Thank you so much for those inspiring thoughts.

  111. Wow.....this is about as clear as it gets....thank you so much, Lorenzo.

  112. Merci beaucoup, Lorenzo for your very excellent Lift!

  113. Thank you Lorenzo. Bon jour. Hi. Cheers.

  114. A Lovely Lift, thank you Lorenzo
