Consider Y/Our Source
We oftentimes forget that we are here to live lives of joy, love and abundance. Since God is the source of these qualities, all of this is available to us right NOW.Being created in the spiritual image and likeness of God means that the same source that causes all to be is living, moving, and having its being as you. Yes, as you. This is the truth of your being. The Divine expresses as you every moment of the day.
