For the spiritual being, intuition is far more than a hunch. It is viewed as guidance or as God talking, and this inner insight is never taken lightly or ignored. (Dr. Wayne Dyer, Real Magic, p. 49)

Thank You For My Genes

Father, thank you for my genes and for the family that carried them and gifted them to me.

Bless me to be the very best I can be in all my circumstances. (Embraced by the Light, Betty J. Eadie, 26 January)

Prayer Is The Lifeline

Prayer is the lifeline that connects you to God. His Holy Spirit, who is with you at all times, helps you to pray even when you don't know what to say or how to ask for help. No matter what kind of battle you must fight today, think of God's presence as your protecting shield and your triumphant sword. (The One Year Mini For Men, 24 January)

Never forget to say thank you to God, even on the grayest of days. Our attitude should be one of humility and gratitude. Saying thank you to God is a daily practice that is absolutely necessary. If a day is not one of thankfulness, the practice has to be repeated until it becomes so. Gratitude is a necessity for those who seek to live a better life. (paraphrased, Twenty-Four Hours a Day, 22 January)

God is the bow,
Man's spirit is the arrow.
God again is the traget.

Shoot straight, this day,
That the arrow
May be one
With the target.
