Choosing God’s Joy as Our Own

…today we do not choose the way in which we go to [God]. ²But we do choose to let Him come. ³And with this choice we rest. ⁴And in our quiet hearts and open minds, His Love will blaze its pathway of itself. ⁵What has not been denied is surely there, if it be true and can be surely reached. ⁶God knows His Son, and knows the way to him. ⁷He does not need His Son to show Him how to find His way. ⁸Through every opened door His Love shines outward from its home within, and lightens up the world in innocence.

Father, we do not know the way to You. ²But we have called, and You have answered us. ³We will not interfere. ⁴Salvation’s ways are not our own, for they belong to You. ⁵And it is unto You we look for them. ⁶Our hands are open to receive Your gifts. ⁷We have no thoughts we think apart from You, and cherish no beliefs of what we are, or Who created us. ⁸Yours is the way that we would find and follow. ⁹And we ask but that Your Will, which is our own as well, be done in us and in the world, that it become a part of Heaven now. ¹⁰Amen. (A Course in Miracles, W-189.9–10. See also ACIM Lesson 189 Insights.)

It is time to let go of trying to be the master of our own destiny. Our destiny was set by God when He created us as His Son. His Will is that we be forever joined in His Love and joy. As we repeat this prayer, we are stating our willingness to let go of our little ideas of what we are.

We are willing to open our mind to receive His eternal gift. He has maintained our Home in Heaven, knowing we could never leave in truth. We remain as God created us. We are willing today to accept His gift and choose His joy in the eternal extension of Love.
