Week 4 – A New Affirmation

The Affirmation

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.

I can say that with confidence, because it is true of the "I" of me. (What?) The "I" of me is not my body or my mind. It is my spirit. My spirit is connected with the Great Spirit. In fact, I and the Father are one. (Whaaat?!?) 

Okay, maybe I should explain why those statements  are absolutely true, and I will in a minute.

First, What Is An Affirmation?

I wrote another article about affirmations. Check that out if you are having trouble with yours. But for now, let's see what the dictionary has to say.

noun

the act or an instance of affirming; state of being affirmed.
the assertion that something exists or is true.
something that is affirmed; a statement or proposition that is declared to be true.
confirmation or ratification of the truth or validity of a prior judgment, decision, etc.
Law. a solemn declaration accepted instead of a statement under oath.

Well, looks like we need to examine the verb, affirm:

verb

to state or assert positively; maintain as true:
to confirm or ratify:
to assert solemnly:
to express agreement with or commitment to; uphold; support:

It comes from the Latin, meaning to make firm.

What About This Affirmation?

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.

whole = undivided; in one piece.

perfect = excellent or complete beyond practical or theoretical improvement:

strong = mentally powerful or vigorous.

powerful = having or exerting great power or force.

loving = feeling or showing love; warmly affectionate; fond.

harmonious = marked by agreement in feeling, attitude, or action:

happy = characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy:

Am I Lying Here?

This sometimes hits folks (it did me) as speaking with forked tongue. Me, perfect? C'mon get real! But I was looking at my "world without", as Haanel would say. Inside, or the "world within", is another story altogether. The Carpenter from Galilee could say that He and the Father are one. I believe Him. And then I had to believe Him when He said (John 17:20-23 emphasis added)) 

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Here's what astounded me. In verse 21 Jesus says that the Father is in Him, but also He is in the Father. How does that work? And then in verse 23 He says that the Father is in Him and He is in us. If you can picture those Russian dolls, since Jesus is in me and God the Father is in Jesus, the Father is in me. So then, I can truthfully say that "I and the Father are one." So, then, I am perfect (maybe not on the outside yet, but definitely on the inside). Since God is love, I am loving. That makes me happy. And the joy of the Lord is my strength. I could go on for days about the connections, but check it out yourself.

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.

And so are YOU!
