I merely follow, for I would not lead.

   When I lead, I am trusting in my own strength. When I lead, I am in control, or so I think. When I lead, I am attached to outcomes and hold expectations. In holding onto expectations I create hidden resentments for myself. As I have heard it said before, expectations are premeditated resentments. And so today, I release my controls and surrender to the Holy Spirit. Surrendering is not sacrificing. Surrendering is trusting in an open way to the truth. I know that when I have followed my own guidance that I have been unhappy. I cannot force happiness to occur in my life. Those times that I have been happy has been when I simply allowed the Holy Spirit to work in my life.

   To me that means, that I have chosen to listen to His Voice. Listening to His Voice brings me a peace that the ego could never bring me. I never know what His guidance will bring me next, but I know that it always assures a happy outcome to all things. Today, I step back and let Him lead the way for me Home. For Heaven is my Home and today, I hasten there.

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.
