God’s Love Is the Only Thing I Seek

ACIM Workbook Lesson 231 – for Friday, August 19, 2011

Affirmation:  “Father, I will but to remember You.”

“What can I seek for, Father, but Your Love?  Perhaps I think I seek for something else; a something I have called by many names.  Yet is Your Love the only ting I seek, or ever sought.  For there is nothing else that I could ever really want to find.  Let me remember You.  What else could I desire but the truth about myself?  (WB408)”


We long for God.  Even when we don’t realize Who it is for which we long.

This prayer explains the dynamic in lovely words.  We want God’s Love, and we will have it.  We will have it now.  If we feel alone, we must know that we are not alone.  A Course in Miracles says that the solution is always with the problem.  The solution to our “aloneness” is to know that, however solitary our lives may be, there is One with us always.

We can deduce from ACIM that we are surrounded by mighty companions.  We walk with them throughout our day.  They see us, but we do not normally see them.  These mighty companions are never described in any details, but “Teachers of teachers” are described.  These are the ones who have known Awakening and do not return to earth, but whose images may appear to us, or, if we are too frightened by that prospect, whose ideas may be given us.  (These are paraphrases from ACIM.)

We would know the truth about ourselves.  We are not introverted enough to need no human companionship, but the greatest companionship is from God Himself.


Dear Father/Mother,

I ask for Your love today as the only thing that I really want.  I have been deluded by the ego when I have sought worldly goals, goals which did not mean anything to me shortly after I reached them.  These egoic goals turned to ashes in my mouth.  I would stop all this nonsense immediately.  I would seek You only.

Be with me today.  So often I ask for Your felt presence, and once again today, I ask for this great blessing of sensing You with me everywhere I walk.
