ACIM Workbook Lesson 89 – for Friday, March 30, 2012
Affirmation: “I am entitled to miracles.”
“I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God’s. His laws release me from grievances, and replace them with miracles.
“. . .Let me not hold a grievance against you, [name], but offer
you the miracles that belongs to you instead.
See truly, this offers me a miracle. (WB154)”
Ask for a miracle today. This is not presumptuous. Jesus knows when we are ready, because miracles comes through him to us. We must not, though, try to make a given miracle happen on our own. Consciously selected miracles can be misguided (a Text tenet). But ask a Higher Power for what we need, and all is well. And well this very day. If a given situation does not change in the physical world, perhaps the real miracle is internal, in the mind and spirit.
Affirmation: “Let miracles replace all grievances.”
“I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have.
“. . .Beyond this is the miracle by which my grievances are
We learn today that we do not have to struggle to give up grievances. A miracle will do the task for us! What a blessing! And what joy awaits on the other side of the miracle.
Sometimes we may feel that the only thing that will help us is a miracle. This feeling is likely to come over us at times of great stress.
Help me to be reassured that You are always there. I know that Your felt presence dispels anxiety immediately. May I know this today. May the memory of Your many blessings give me the reassurance that more blessings will follow. And that includes anything and everything that, just now, is raising my anxiety level.
I would not hold grievances of any kind. I would know that under Your laws, miracles are natural. And I would ask for a miracle today.
