Resting in the Power of Love


Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety. ²Patience is natural to the teacher of God. ³All he sees is certain outcome, at a time perhaps unknown to him as yet, but not in doubt. ⁴The time will be as right as is the answer. ⁵And this is true for everything that happens now or in the future. ⁶The past as well held no mistakes; nothing that did not serve to benefit the world, as well as him to whom it seemed to happen. ⁷Perhaps it was not understood at the time. ⁸Even so, the teacher of God is willing to reconsider all his past decisions, if they are causing pain to anyone. ⁹Patience is natural to those who trust. ¹⁰Sure of the ultimate interpretation of all things in time, no outcome already seen or yet to come can cause them fear. (A Course in Miracles, M-4.VIII.1)

Impatience is always a sign that we are identifying with the ego. It uses time to justify guilt and fear. Guilt is always about the past. Fear is about the future or impending loss. While we identify with the ego, life seems to be constant conflict between thoughts of what might happen and what we believe has happened which might happen again.

Our true Self knows that time is not real. It knows that we are perfectly safe in changeless Love. Nothing can happen to change the Self that is God’s one Son. As we let go of our fear thoughts, time becomes less and less of a distraction. Increasingly our minds are open to seeing the presence of Love in our brothers. We see the Light of Love surrounding us. We feel the joy of sharing Love without limit. We rest in the certainty of God’s Love in which we dwell.

Today we ask the Holy Spirit to help us see past things of time and welcome the peace of mind that comes with the power of Love.
