ACIM Lesson 267 My heart is beating in the peace of God. ³Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness.
My heart is beating in the peace of God.
1. Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love. ²It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought. ³Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. ⁴Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me. ⁵Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength. ⁶I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving Arms. ⁷Each heartbeat calls His Name, and every one is answered by His Voice, assuring me I am at home in Him.
2. Let me attend Your Answer, not my own. ²Father, my heart is beating in the peace the Heart of Love created. ³It is there and only there that I can be at home.
Directed by His Voice and Sustained by Him in love
Oh, my dear God, what a beautiful lesson! I sat and cried when I read this. I don’t really know what to say about it. It filled my heart with love and gratitude. Just imagine, all around me is the life God created out of His Love! Thinking about this, I can’t imagine what else I could do in life that comes anywhere near this in importance or in joy. This is the reason my only goal is the peace of God. This is what it feels like to be in the peace of God. It is not peace that comes and goes with shifting perceptions. It is peace that is always there. It is the strength of God that never varies and is available in all circumstances.
I have a purpose. I am a messenger of God and I don’t have to worry about how to be this in the world. I am directed by His Voice and sustained by Him in love. I only need to let go of everything that would obstruct this communication. I do this willingly and consistently even if not perfectly. My deep desire to live my purpose guarantees that I can and will do whatever is needed of me to the best of my ability. And wherever I fail, I am forgiven, and I renew my efforts.
