October 3, 2010 – The Secret of Permanent Prosperity

Reverend Edwene Gaines

From Edwene Gaines, “I am a person of power.” When you are 100% committed to your intention, the universe steps up. The God energy is always there. Plug yourself in. All it takes is a conscious intention to live your life fully in every way. Prosperity is having a vitally alive healthy body for the God-being that we are to express through; relationships that are joyous, satisfying, intimate, honest, and nurturing, and that work all the time; work that we love so much it’s not work but play; and all the money that we can spend.

So for the next 21 days, NO COMPLAINING. For every challenge that arises, say, ”God, that’s great!”

Now, align with these 4 simple spiritual laws –

1.    “God is my source.” Return one tenth of all you receive to where you get your spiritual food. Scripture says about tithing, “prove me now”, so start where you are– attitude doesn’t matter.
2.    “Forgive yourself and others all the time.” At night before you go to sleep, pray, “Father|Mother God, have I put anyone out of my heart today?” Forgive them –and yourself – like you forgive a child. The only people that we have to forgive are the people who don’t do things our way. Pray, “Let me love them the way You love them.”
3.    “Set clear cut, tangible goals.” Jesus didn’t say “…make Me guess.” Be very specific and write down your desires. “Desire is the onward impulse of the ever-evolving soul.” – Charles Fillmore. Do not worry about how they will come. God has ways you might not have ever thought of. Would you be willing to consider God knows exactly how to do it?
4.    “Get on purpose with your life.” If you don’t know what that is, ask yourself, “What would be the most fun thing I could do with my life?” What would you do with your life if money was no object, if you didn’t have to work, if you didn’t have responsibilities, if you could do anything, be anything, have anything? Go there in fantasies and write about it. Visualize it. And start taking action-steps towards those things. In that transition period, spend a lot of time in prayer asking for guidance. ”Show me the way to do this.” Ask for those ideas. It does take courage. Yogi Berra said, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

Mario Andretti said, “If everything seems under control, you’re not going nearly fast enough!” And Edwene Gaines says, “I am a person of power!”
