Mark 1:40-41--And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, saying unto him, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.  And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.  In studying the words of Jesus we find he never talked much about the negative conditions he  wished to change.  He took an opposite position.  Instead of telling God how sick and poor people were, how famished and lonely they were, he affirmed the exact opposite.  He told the lame to walk, the blind to see, the dumb to speak and the deaf to hear.  He commanded the waves to be still, even while they were turbulently tossing themselves around him.  He was calm in the midst of the storm.  Well, how do you practice that which is calm in the midst of the storm?  When you pray or affirm your good, close the door of your consciousness to everything which denies this good and state your needs, not as a supplication but as an affirmation of acceptance.  Receive your healing in the mighty name of Jesus!  Your good is at hand; be heald my sister; be healed my brother.  Do not struggle, and just KNOW that your GOOD is at hand.  Know, intuitively, in your subconscious mind, in your inner thoughts, in your inner woman or man that redemptive healing is "right-now."  Your recover, your rescue is immediate:  verse  42 affirms---And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.  We shall not gain happiness by continuing to repeat mental patterns of unhappiness.  We cannot enter into the joy of living while we remain sad.  Can we, in the midst of negative conditions, accept a greater good?  If we can we shall be complying with the Law Of Life.  We shall be giving Life (GOD) a chance to work for us.  We are to come to Life, not dragging our burdens and woes to hurl into the face of the Infinite, but gently we are to lay them down at the altar of our faith as we turn from the valley of our previous despair.  Abundant blessings everyone, Rev. R.S. Williams, Jr.
