I choose the second place to gain the first.

What is Your Will for me today Father but to step back from my petty control and allow You to lead me to my rightful Home? I have been mistaken in thinking that I could control and manipulate this world to bring me true happiness. It is not so. For me to receive the true happiness that I seek I simply allow You to be in charge of my entire life. It is Your Will that I choose to follow. It is Your Holy Spirit in which I place my trust to ever guide me where I need to be.

   I know that the Holy Spirit’s guidance is always sure and steady. It always leads me to peace. It is for me to remember to surrender my will to Him. It is not a sacrifice to surrender, but it is true wisdom to allow Holy Spirit’s plan to be in place. Only His plan will work. My prior experience has shown me that my plans have failed too many times and now I am reminded to see the Light once again. Step back and let Him lead….so simple to say and it can indeed be simple to follow. The joy is ever present when I say “Yes” to Him.

Excerpt from Lesson 328 in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages


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.
