God in His mercy wills that I be saved.

   It is focus, persistence and vigilance that will assist me in the goal for today’s Lesson. It seems rather artificial at first, especially if I am feeling downright hurt, angry and victimized. What do you mean that all I need to do is look upon all these stupid things that hurt me and say “God wills that I be saved from this?” Who the heck are you kidding?
   But yet with focus, I truly will see that He does will that I be saved from what my mind has created to disrupt my peace. The ego does not want my happiness and so it distracts and turns my attention away from the Will of God. God’s Will is only happiness for me.
   How do I do this when I am in the thick of the emotions? When it seems that no matter what I do I cannot shake loose these feelings of unworthiness, or inadequacy , or anger, or whatever they may be at the time?
   I can call a friend, a minister, a counselor. I can write and write and write in a journal, using the concept of the “3 page rule” where I keep writing for at least 3 full pages. I can talk to Holy Spirit in my mind or through the mentioned forms.

******************

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.
