Choosing the Path to Joy

A happy outcome to all things is sure.

God’s promises make no exceptions. ²And He guarantees that only joy can be the final outcome found for everything. ³Yet it is up to us when this is reached; how long we let an alien will appear to be opposing His. ⁴And while we think this will is real, we will not find the end He has appointed as the outcome of all problems we perceive, all trials we see, and every situation that we meet. ⁵Yet is the ending certain. ⁶For God’s Will is done in earth and Heaven. ⁷We will seek and we will find according to His Will, which guarantees that our will is done.

We thank You, Father, for Your guarantee of only happy outcomes in the end. ²Help us not interfere, and so delay the happy endings You have promised us for every problem that we can perceive; for every trial we think we still must meet. (A Course in Miracles, W-292. See also ACIM Lesson 292 Insights.)

A Course in Miracles offers us a path to joy. It is very simple and straightforward. We need to let go of our wish for specialness, to be separate and different. God created His Son joyous because His Son remains one with Him. He shares all of His joy.

The ego is the wish to define joy as specialness. But specialness has a price. To be special requires that one have more than another. If this were true, guilt would be justified. For specialness to occur, sacrifice is required for one to have more than another. In effect, the wish for specialness is the denial of true happiness.

Today we choose to follow the Guide to joy. As we are willing to offer our perceptions to the Holy Spirit for His gentle correction, we will see Love’s presence beyond the separate images of the world. And joy is an attribute of Love. The appeal of Love will inspire us to lay down the mistaken wish for specialness. We choose the path to joy today.
