Accepting No Substitute for God’s Love

Today the peace of God envelops me, and I forget all things except His Love.

Father, I wake today with miracles correcting my perception of all things. ²And so begins the day I share with You as I will share eternity, for time has stepped aside today. ³I do not seek the things of time, and so I will not look upon them. ⁴What I seek today transcends all laws of time and things perceived in time. ⁵I would forget all things except Your Love. ⁶I would abide in You, and know no laws except Your law of love. ⁷And I would find the peace which You created for Your Son, forgetting all the foolish toys I made as I behold Your glory and my own.

And when the evening comes today, we will remember nothing but the peace of God. ²For we will learn today what peace is ours, when we forget all things except God’s Love. (A Course in Miracles, W-346. See also ACIM Lesson 346 Insights.)

We do not have to wait for the peace of God. His peace is now and always. We do not have to do anything to qualify for His peace. It is God’s Will that we have His peace now and forever.

We need only be willing to accept the fact that our will is God’s Will, one and the same. His peace was given us in our Creation as His Son. What God gives is eternal. Only our wish for specialness, to have more than everything interferes with our awareness of the peace that is already ours. The substitutes the ego offers to make a semblance of specialness interfere with our awareness of God’s gift because the substitutes deny His gifts.

Today we have the opportunity to lay down the ego’s substitutes and welcome His peace and Love.
