Stay strong in acts of goodness

August 9, 2023 | 11 comments


Let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

~ Apostle Paul, Galatians 6:9, NLT

Persistence, perseverance and patience pay off!

Stick with what is right and good. Faithfulness to living a life filled with goodness reaps the goodness it sows.

  1. “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” (p. 249): “Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life and recognizing no mortal nor material power as able to destroy. Let us rejoice that we are subject to the divine ‘powers that be.’ Such is the true Science of being.”

    1. F thanks for that great quote from S&H. It gives me a feeling of God constantly renewing and refreshing us with Truth.

      When I read, Stay Strong in Acts of Goodness, I thought of how important it is to turn away from material beliefs and toward remembering God is All, rejoicing that we are governed only by Him. That is doing myself the greatest act of kindness and compassion, to remember what I am, who I am and WHOSE I am. Then I can be more available to do good in the world.

  2. This citation came to me from Evan’s above citation:

    “Let us learn of the real and eternal, and prepare for the reign of Spirit, the kingdom of heaven, — the reign and rule of universal harmony, which cannot be lost nor remain forever unseen.” (SH 208:20)

    By sowing to the Spirit, and by never tiring of doing good wherever the opportunity arises,
    we will reap the harvest of blessings, and will be preparing for the reign of Spirit, the kingdom of heaven. The rule of universal harmony will come to light and will be seen as governing us
    all perfectly by the law of Love.

    Wonderful thought as there will be no more discords, no more wars, no more sickness, no more fear or destructive elements – just perpetual spiritual harmony and peace for all mankind
    forever. This is worth all the persistent effort we can put into demonstrating the
    goodness that God is expressing in each one of us, particularly where good does not seem evident,.

  3. “Love’s labors are not lost.”
    Miscellaneouns Writings 1883 -1896 p. 100

    I think of this, almost every day, and it lifts me.

  4. God gives me the strength to keep going.. Thank you God for persistence, perseverance. and patience.. You are my Life.

  5. “Some of [y]our greatest blessings come with patience” – Warren Wierbe
    and ..
    “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later”.

    Doing good, keeping God/Love in our hearts and Soul with compassion
    and appreciation gives us strength throughout the day. With God All things
    are possible.

    1. Wonderful link, dear J . Thank you so much!
      From Mis Writings pg.307: 1 – 10, referring to beautiful angels:

      “God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies.
      Neverr ask for tomorrow : it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present
      help; and if you wait, neverr doubting, you will have all you need every
      moment. What a glorious inheritance is given to us through the understanding
      of omnipresent Love! More we cannot ask: more we do not want: more we
      cannot have. This sweet assurance is the “Peace, be still” to all human fears,
      to suffering of every sort.”

      Angels are always present wherever we are or wherever we go. Lovely!

    2. It’s. Midnight here and I am still up and just read the wonderful article by Mark Raffles titled “Pray without ceasing”. Thanks a lot dear “J” for sharing it! I have attended the testimony meeting of my branch church. And now at home I had very much the need and desire to take in healing inspirations. And this article meets my needs and gives me desired divine inspirations!♡

      And thank you very much, dear Carol for mentioning the passage in Mis. Writings p.307: 1-10. by MBE. I love that passage and I prayed often with it as it’s very comforting!

      Dear Evan, thank you most deeply for today’s SpiritView and the passage by the wonderful Apostel Paul in Galations. Mrs. Eddy never gave up and admonished us to do so likewise. Our ceaseless prayers lets us be always aware of God’s loving guidance. And the article by Mark Raffles explains so wonderfully how we can pray ceaselessly!

      Thank you God for steadily teaching us the Truth that heals! And I am really thankful that I may join this very lovely SpiritView community. ♡

  6. As we know, and I remind myself:

    “Every good gift and every perfect gift
    is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, in whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
    James 1:17

    Evan, thank you for reflecting the Light that comes from our Source, divine Love, so powerfully and beautifully and consistently and unselfishly!

    Thank You, God, for Evan and for this SpiritView Family.
