ACIM Workbook Lessons 361 – 365 for Tuesday – Saturday,
December 27 – December 31, 2011
Affirmation: “This holy instant would I give to You.
Be You in charge. For I would follow You,
Certain that Your direction gives me peace.”
“And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son. (WB486)”
1 – A Year with the Workbook of ACIM
So we end the year that we have given to God through studying the Workbook of A Course in Miracles. But we are not through. There is farther to walk along the pathway. If we have not yet experienced Awakening, it is there waiting for us.
2 – Depend on the Holy Spirit
We need to do very little, but depend greatly upon the Holy Spirit. His part is much larger than is ours, and we should not be disturbed by the disproportion of this. We are asked very little in ACIM. The books seem thick and complicated, but this is an illusion, and the more we study them, we more we realize how simple the truth really is.
3 – May We Commune with God
May we end this year in communion with God, Who is always there for us.
Thank you for the guidance that the Workbook for Students of A Course in Miracles gives to all of us. We need that guidance, for without the practical counsel of the Workbook, we would in all likelihood not understand the message of ACIM.
Be with us in these final moments of the year that we have spent with the Workbook. And if we feel prompted to go through the Workbook again, may we do so, beginning the next year with high resolve and a committed spirit. If we do not feel so led, may we listen to that counsel as well.
Be with us, whatever our pathway to You may be in the future. May we learn until the time of learning has ceased. Thank You for Your patience with us.
