No mixed blessings

Just a simple thought for today—there are no mixed blessings.

I became convinced of this many years ago, and it’s always helped. So many times good comes our way, but there’s a knee-jerk “this is too good to be true” feeling. Like it can’t be only good but must come with some sort of bad. But the more I’ve gotten to know the Supreme Source of all good, the less I believe good is anything less than perfect.

Divine Spirit, Love, is only good. Spirit sends only good to us. When we receive it, it’s only good. When it makes our lives better, it only makes things better.

Check this out:

All substance, intelligence, wisdom, being, immortality, cause, and effect belong to God. These are His attributes, the eternal manifestations of the infinite divine Principle, Love. No wisdom is wise but His wisdom; no truth is true, no love is lovely, no life is Life but the divine; no good is, but the good God bestows.

--Science and Health

If God bestows it, it’s good. If He didn’t bestow it, it’s not even worth wanting, for “no good is, but the good God bestows.”

Another favorite prayer:

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

--Psalms

Blessings from God are only good. Open your eyes and see.
