21 Day - No Complaining Challenge

March 23rd I started a 21 day - No Complaining Challenge and invited a few folks to join in. Well over 50 people have said yes to this challenge and there were lots of questions of what this challenge is all about, what constitutes complaining and what doesn't and how will we hold ourselves accountable. At its most basic level this is a practice for you. And the invitation is the catalyst for accountability. I will post things daily, thoughts on complaining and offers some practices to be in relationship with complaining. I have also set up an accountability call in series, 3 calls over the 21 days. I am making this a part of my evolving ministry so I am asking you to pay $21 for for these 3 calls of support, learning and growth. You can register here.
If you choose not to do the calls that is fine too, return to this event everyday for some words of support.
Love to you!
The calls will be:
Sunday March 29th 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. 
Saturday April 4th 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. 
Sunday, April 12th 7:30 - 8:00 pm, all CST times

Sunday Afternoon Study...I turn my attention consistently towards my heart's desires!

Thought I would share some great quotes from this afternoons study.

From The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes (p. 186)
"Never look at that which you do not wish to experience.  No matter what the false condition may be, it must be refuted.  The proper kind of denial is based upon the recognition that, in reality, there is no limitation, for Mind can easily make a planet as an acorn.  The Infinite knows no difference between a million dollars and a penny.  It only knows that IT IS."

and from page 159...the importance of keeping our faith in the direction of our good even if not especially when doubt reveals itself.  "Not only must we have complete faith in Spirit, and Its ability to know and to do, but we must have complete confidence in our approach to It.  We must not be lukewarm in our conviction.  WE must know that we know.  WE are to demonstrate that spiritual thought force has power over all apparent material resistance, and this cannot be done unless we have abounding confidence in the Principle which we approach."

Humbled by the thought that we have been "trained unknowingly" to reason our life around the basic idea that our Good is something ever absent from us that we have to get or somehow make ourselves worth of...geesh.  From Emma Curtis Hopkins in a book titled Scientific Christian Mental Practice "Having been trained for years to reason your life out on the basis of Good being absent from you, you now begin to reason from an entirely different basis.  You judge not by appearances, but by righteousness.  Many conditions slip away almost instantaneously."

"...evil is a way of believing and not omnipotent." E.C. Hopkins

"It is not to the seeming failures of your life you must look for your reputation among the angels of light, but to the purpose you have held." ~E.C. Hopkins
