Melody Beattie, Elizabeth Searle Lamb, Book of Psalms


Dear Readers,

Our thoughts carry enormous impact. They directly influence every
aspect of our day; they also directly impact those whom we encounter.
Holy thoughts are healing thoughts because they are charged with the
holiness of Divine Power. Healing thoughts are kind, joyous, and stead-
fast, buoyed by peaceful trust in God. Holy thought is transformational:
of the body, the mind, the soul, and usually of all three.

The more we turn a deaf ear to any thought that is not of God, the
more room we have to let Him fill our hearts and minds with
life-transforming, holy Healing.

Think healing thoughts.

When you feel anger or resentment, ask God to
help you feel it, learn from it, and then release it.
Ask Him to bless those who you feel anger toward.

Ask him to bless you too.

When you feel fear, ask Him to take it from you.
When you feel misery, force gratitude. When you
feel deprived, know that there is enough.

When you feel ashamed, reassure yourself that
who you are is okay. You are good enough.

...When you think about others, think love.
When you think about yourself, think love.

Then watch your thoughts transform reality.

Excerpted from "The Language of Letting Go,"
by Melody Beattie
Hazeldon, 1990


A Healing Prayer

In silence now

I open my mind,

my heart and spirit

to God, who is ever

the One Healer.

O God, let love

erase imperfection.

Let peace soothe

every nerve.

Let joy re-energize

my whole body.

In silence now

I let go and let

the total perfection

that is God be

the total truth

of my whole being

at this very moment

and for always.

Elizabeth Searle Lamb

The Last Word:

O Lord my God,
I cried to You for help,
and You healed me.

Psalm 30:2
