How to Make Today Happy and Peaceful

Would you receive the messages of God? ²For thus do you become His messenger. ³You are appointed now. ⁴And yet you wait to give the messages you have received. ⁵And so you do not know that they are yours, and do not recognize them. ⁶No one can receive and understand he has received until he gives. ⁷For in the giving is his own acceptance of what he received.

²He needs our voice that He may speak through us. ³He needs our hands to hold His messages, and carry them to those whom He appoints. ⁴He needs our feet to bring us where He wills, that those who wait in misery may be at last delivered. ⁵And He needs our will united with His Own, that we may be the true receivers of the gifts He gives.

²I am among the ministers of God, and I am grateful that I have the means by which to recognize that I am free.

The world recedes as we light up our minds, and realize these holy words are true. ²They are the message sent to us today from our Creator. ³Now we demonstrate how they have changed our minds about ourselves, and what our function is. ⁴For as we prove that we accept no will we do not share, our many gifts from our Creator will spring to our sight and leap into our hands, and we will recognize what we received. (A Course in Miracles, W-154.8;11:2-5;13:2–14:4. See also ACIM Lesson 154 Insights.)

We dwell in Love as Love. The Holy Spirit is feeding us God’s messages of Love 24/7. If we are not experiencing God’s Love it is because we are not sharing It. Love must be shared to be known.

The ego does not know how to share because it is the wish not to share. As long as we identify with the ego, we are unaware of God’s Love. We need to learn how to share because we have taught ourselves how not to share. God has given us His purpose—to share His Love without limit. The Holy Spirit will help us undo the limitation we have given ourselves. We do this by accepting His help to forgive the world for all we thought it was.

Forgiveness frees us to share God’s gift of Love. It undoes the barriers we have made against awareness of Love’s presence. As we forgive, the Light of Love becomes brighter in our world. The images of our world become less important as we experience the blessing that comes with letting God’s Love flow through us to everyone and everything. Happiness and peace come as we accept God’s Love by giving It. Let us make today a happy and peaceful day.
