The Holy Spirit Is Our Guide to Joy

The Love of God is what created me. The Love of God is
everything I am. The Love of God proclaimed me as His
Son. The Love of God within me sets me free.

Pain is my own idea. It is not a Thought of God, but one I
thought apart from Him and from His Will. His Will is joy,
and only joy for His beloved Son. And that I choose, instead
of what I made.

In silence and in true humility I seek God’s glory, to behold
it in the Son whom He created as my Self.

I seek the function that would set me free from all the vain
illusions of the world. Only the function God has given me
can offer freedom. Only this I seek, and only this will I
accept as mine.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 209, W-pI.209-212. See also ACIM Lesson 209 Insights.)

If the Love of God is everything we are as His Son, then our only function is to extend Love. In the dream of separation the reflection of our true function is forgiveness. Forgiveness makes way for Love that we are to naturally extend.

Whenever our peace is disturbed in any way, there is a need to forgive. We need the Holy Spirit’s help to show us that what seems to disturb us has no substance and cannot change the truth of What we are. As we practice being alert to any disturbance of our peace and bringing it to the Holy Spirit, we clear away the self-made barriers to our extension of Love. This is our function every day and every moment of our day. This is how we accept God’s gift of joy.

Today we choose to walk with the Holy Spirit as our Guide to joy.
