“I want you to be happy, just as you want happiness. Let go of your worries. Give them to me. I love.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 4:III
What a heartwarming message given by Jesus! He is standing right beside all of us, embracing all of us with love. He invites us to eliminate worry. If we truly believed that he stands beside each of us, which one of us would still cling to worry?
None! None of us would cling to worry. Believe these words. Jesus loves. We learned this in Sunday school many years ago. Now we can understand it on a more mature basis. He can love more greatly than we can, for nothing in our experience has taught us as keenly as what Jesus knows about love. Let him give to us the knowledge that is his. Ask for this today.
We all want happiness, and while there is much that we can do to improve our attitudes, happiness does ask for divine bestowal. We can believe, rightly, that happiness is God’s will for us, for all His children. We get ourselves tangled up when we think we need to “deserve” love. We are worthy children of God, and nothing that we do or say gives us worth in His eyes (from A Course in Miracles). We are worthy as we are, without exception. We need to ask forgiveness for our mistakes, for they are not dark sins.
When we have done that, our function of salvation, forgiveness, happiness (as said in A Course in Miracles) becomes real to us.
