ACIM Workbook Lesson 349 – for Thursday, December 15, 2011
Affirmation: “Today I let Christ’s vision look upon
All things for me and judge them not, but give
Each one a miracle of love instead.”
“Father, Your gifts are mine. Each one that I accept gives me a miracle to give. (WB478)”
1 – All Miracles Come from Love
All miracles come from Love. And vision is what we will see when we have let Christ’s vision take the place of our false perception. May we offer miracles today that Jesus prompts us to offer. May we make no decisions today, ourselves, about what miracles to offer, for our own decisions will be faulty. We look to our elder brother, Jesus, for his guidance in these matters. Time is under his control, and he can arrange time to allow us the time that we need to perform the miracles that he asks us to perform (from the Text).
2 – Vision vs. Perception
May our perception be replaced today by vision. Then we will be seeing truly. The body’s eyes do not really have vision; they only perceive, and falsely. Vision shows us the things of eternity–the intangibles of peace, love, joy, tranquility, calm.
3 – Accept God’s Gifts
God grants us many gifts over the course of a lifetime. When we accept His gifts with grace, we are well on the way to accepting Him and the salvation which he offers to us. When we accept a gift, we are granted the power to offer a miracle. And our miracles will foreshorten time considerably (a Text tenet)–each one of us, acting in concert with one another.
May my day be filled with miracles. This seems a bold request, but I know that You wish joy for me. Happiness is a laudable goal. And it is in happy times that we can give the most to the others in our world.
Help me to know which miracles to offer. I realize that this are not to be under conscious control, as this would be misguided. But I ask You to use me today in any way that You deem appropriate.
