“My brother, peace and joy I offer you, That I may have God’s peace and joy as mine.”
This sentence speaks to me of forgiveness–the letting go of the fearful past. When I offer peace and joy to one with whom I’ve had a difficult or unholy relationship, I come to understand that I receive it as well. For a time, I thought this was theoretical, a nice idea, but impractical. Then I began to heal from such a relationship and found that if I offered the person with whom I’d had it peace and joy, it came back to me. Sometimes this was very hard to do, and I had to ask Holy Spirit’s help to see the past differently. At other times, I was open and willing to offer this gift. This was so tonight. I found myself thinking of the good things that came from the relationship, including my introduction to the Course. I am grateful.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
