God is God — one Mind. From this Mind comes a future of hope!

February 10, 2021
By Kathy Fitzer

“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Sometimes we can get so caught up in all the “stuff” we’re dealing with — personally or collectively — that it’s hard to see “the light at the end of the tunnel”, so to speak. But, God knows each of us and has not only the desire, but the ability, to give good to each one — to give us hope and encouragement and deliverance. Every parent wants the best for her or his child. God — being God, perfect Love — not only wants the best for every one of us, but also has the power to deliver it in the best way and at the perfect time for each of us.

View Life from a fresh perspective …Sing a new song and be blessed!

January 8, 2021
By Kathy Fitzer

Acknowledge God as a living God — ever-present, deserving our praise, and giving us fresh inspiration.  We rejoice that God will never withhold anything good from us … and pray that we will continue to love doing God’s will, keep His law in our hearts, seek Him, and magnify His goodness.  When something is magnified sufficiently, all else disappears.  Then, all we can see is what has been enlarged in thought — divine Life!

Seek and find your inseparable oneness with God, as you are drawn up and in and by everlasting Love!

October 10, 2020
By Kathy Fitzer

We don’t need to struggle through life, hoping to earn God’s approval.  But we do need to seek God, as the Golden Text tells us. Seeking includes acknowledging God’s presence as a constant that is lovingly guiding us — and all.  Checking out the Hebrew word that seek comes from, we find it includes the idea of asking and diligently inquiring.  If, humanly, you really want to know something, you take the time to investigate, give the subject your sincere attention, and put into practice what you’re learning.  Same thing, here.  In all we do, we need to really desire to see things from God’s perspective — seek God’s view!  From that comes a full sense of living!  The Amplified Bible translates the Golden Text this way: “You who seek God [requiring Him as your greatest need], let your heart revive and live.”  A revived heart is an encouraged heart (CEV translation).  So … if you’re ever feeling down, discouraged, or alone … seek God!  Look for the presence of Love and beauty and goodness expressed in the tiniest of ways.  Focus on those things and acknowledge God as their source, knowing there is nothing but God, good!  As a result, you’ll again feel your oneness with God, good, that can never really be severed.

Choose God’s law, take your case to the court of Spirit, and be free!

September 8, 2020
By Kathy Fitzer

Overview:  References to court and law and wisdom run throughout this week’s Lesson.  It brings out that there really is only one law — the law of Spirit.  Although it seems that we can suffer as a result of breaking a so-called law of matter, this verdict is overturned as we discover that matter is actually just a “belief”; a “human concept;” an “error of statement” and “there is no material truth” — so no material law.  God’s wisdom reveals what is true and what isn’t.  As we take the case to the court of Spirit, we are proclaimed innocent, and there is no more suffering.

Thrive in God’s kingdom where you’ve been firmly planted!

August 8, 2020
By Kathy Fitzer

To me, this week’s Lesson has a strong focus on the indivisible and permanent relationship of God and man — Soul and its expression. When I think of Soul I think of identity, and Soul’s unlimited expression of such qualities as beauty, creativity, joy, peace, health and harmony — shining through each one completely and uniquely.  Firmly planted and rooted in the kingdom of God, we thrive — our eternal identity forever unfolding in newness and freshness.

Let Life live you!

July 11, 2020
By Kathy Fitzer

To me, this Lesson, brings out God’s gift of uninterrupted Life that we express completely and forever.  Many years ago I experienced symptoms of heart problems.  At the time I had a young family and was super involved in volunteer work for church, school, and community.  I felt stressed and pulled in a zillion directions.  This difficult period became an opportunity to learn more about Life as God.  The take-away that has been with me ever since was that I didn’t need to struggle to “live life” but Life was living me.  I am — and we EACH are — the active expression of Life itself.  Life is infinite, eternal, full and free.  Being entirely spiritual, it is independent of material limitations — flowing abundantly and without obstruction.  I was healed, and grateful for the liberating lesson learned!

Give up the belief that you live in a material body!  You are the temple of God!

May 18, 2020
By Kathy Fitzer

Choosing to be “present with the Lord” we are unimpressed with the reports of matter — whether good or bad.  As we keep thought focused on our oneness with God, Spirit, Life, Truth and Love — the Soul of our being — we find ourselves dwelling in infinite Mind. The outward expression that we call body must naturally express Soul’s freedom and harmony.  We, like Paul, must always give God the credit and glory as we overcome every trial.
