Review of Lessons 123 – I thank my Father for His gifts to me.
Lesson 124 – Let me remember I am one with God.
As I meditated this morning, I was thinking of a friend who reached out to me yesterday who is going through a difficult time in their lives with transition on multiple fronts. Their energy was low, and they felt spent.
In our Lesson Review today, we are to be in ultimate gratitude to God for all the gifts He has given us. And this includes my friend and their needs. The other lesson, as we remember our Oneness with God, also allows me to see my friend beyond the varied veils that stand in their way of knowing the Truth.
My friend does not study ACIM, nor should it matter. What matters is the Love I extend forward in their suffering. I reminded my friend of the need for self-care, the fact that God (my friend does believe in God) is not absent but instead there are thick layers of fog preventing my friend from realizing God is ever present even in our difficulties.
As I remember the truth in these lessons for myself, I remember it for all who walk the world with me. I can offer a blessing of care and hold the God’s Love for anyone when they are caught in the mud of the ego’s thought system.
God’s Love is a spring rain, washing away all that is not needed so the soil is now fertile for growth. My friend, even still a little fearful, can now see beyond some of the clouds of doubt. I blessed my friend by the vision of angels surrounding their being. For this, my friend was grateful.
We can meet people where they are and use language that they understand. In all, in applying this Course it is not how we can use Course-perfect language or memorize passages, it is instead, can I simply be loving and truly helpful to all.
