Love’s Guarantee of Lasting Happiness

A happy outcome to all things is sure.

God’s promises make no exceptions. And He guarantees that only joy can be the final outcome found for everything. Yet it is up to us when this is reached; how long we let an alien will appear to be opposing His. And 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. Yet is the ending certain. For God’s Will is done in earth and Heaven. We 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. Help 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 Workbook Lesson 292, W-pII.292. See also ACIM Lesson 292 Insights.)

Happiness is an attribute of God’s Love. The ego, in its quest for specialness, denies the oneness of Love. Everything the ego directs us to do is guaranteed to disappoint. Because our true Self is part of God’s Love, seeking anything separate from Love is meaningless. It accomplishes nothing, disguised in illusions of forms. Seeking status, a relationship with another body, possessions we can call our own, can never bring us lasting happiness.

God has given us the Guide we need to lead us out of meaningless quests on a path that leads to awakening to the true Love we are. Following this Guide is guaranteed to bring us happiness because It leads us back to the Source of happiness.

Today we practice stepping back from our self-made goals by focusing on the peace of God within us. In this peace we welcome the lead of His Guide. It directs us to overlook the meaningless pursuits of the ego to see the Light of Love that we would recognize as our true Self. The Holy Spirit will lead us on the path to lasting happiness and awaken to the Home we never left in truth.
