“Deny not Heaven. It is yours today, but for the asking. Nor need you perceive how great the gift, how changed your mind will be before it comes to you. Ask to receive, and it is given you. Conviction lies within it. Till you welcome it as yours, uncertainty remains. Yet God is fair. Sureness is not required to receive what only your acceptance can bestow.”
This lesson filled my eyes with tears of joy. For most of my life, I believed that I must earn God’s love and grace with sacrificial gifts and hard, hard work. Now I understand that the only thing required is my acceptance of the undoing of the silly idea that I can be separated from either God or my brothers and sisters. Yes, there may still be hard work, or at least consistent effort, but the effort is not to earn anything; it is simply to let go of mistaken ideas and dark dreams.
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.
