Following Our Father’s Lead to Safety

Steady our feet, our Father. Let our doubts be quiet and our holy minds be still, and speak to us. We have no words to give to You. We would but listen to Your Word, and make it ours. Lead our practicing as does a father lead a little child along a way he does not understand. Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe because his father leads the way for him.

So do we bring our practicing to You. And if we stumble, You will raise us up. If we forget the way, we count upon Your sure remembering. We wander off, but You will not forget to call us back. Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk more certainly and quickly unto You. And we accept the Word You offer us to unify our practicing, as we review the thoughts that You have given us.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 171, W-pI.V.2-4;4:3. See also ACIM Lesson 171 Insights.)

The ego is an attempt to usurp the power of God and claim It as its own. It needs to be right that separation is real and the oneness of our Creator is false. The last thing it wants to do is to follow the lead of our Father, because that would mean the ego is false and the oneness of our Creator is true.

We don’t really want to feel guilty. We don’t really want to feel alone and separate, vulnerable to outside sources that can annihilate us. We want the peace of God. We want to remember our true Self. We want to remember that we are Love and nothing else, just like our Father.

Today we welcome the strength of God to support us on our journey of awakening to the one Self our Father created. We are willing to follow our Father’s lead to our Home in the perfect safety of changeless Love.
