The peace of God is shining in me now.

Why wait for peace at a future time? I can have peace now. I can keep telling myself this knowing it is true and practicing numerous times, yet at moments the peace escapes me again and my mood is back to what it was. Have you experienced this?

So, I take another deep breath, a walk, a seat for meditation and perhaps a cat on my lap.

Peace is here. It is here within my soul. The light is there. It seems small as a spark, yet the flame is fanned when my attention is maintained. Quiet arrives. I thank God for the Light of His Love. I know it is This that saves me. I save myself by recalling that Light.

Sit quietly and close your eyes. The light within you is sufficient. It alone has power to give the gift of sight to you.

This line stands out to me today. Especially, “The light within you is sufficient” as it almost brings a tear to my eye. I need nothing else of this world. It’s nice to think so, yet God assures me the strength of Who I am in Him is all I need.

As I continue to quiet, I am touched by the warmth of the Light as I feel it continue to expand.  I let that peace go into the world so all can be blessed by His Radiant Light of Peace.

May I continue to remember this as the day progresses. Amen.

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.
