ACIM Lesson 238 On my decision all salvation rests. Father, Your trust in me has been so great, I must be worthy. I am still as You created me
On my decision all salvation rests.
1. Father, Your trust in me has been so great, I must be worthy. ²You created me, and know me as I am. ³And yet You placed Your Son’s salvation in my hands, and let it rest on my decision. ⁴I must be beloved of You indeed. ⁵And I must be steadfast in holiness as well, that You would give Your Son to me in certainty that he is safe Who still is part of You, and yet is mine, because He is my Self.
2. And so, again today, we pause to think how much our Father loves us. ²And how dear His Son, created by His Love, remains to Him Whose Love is made complete in him.
Salvation Is in Our Hands
I must be worthy. I am still as You created me, Father. I stop a moment now to think how much our Father loves us. We are so dear to Him. He trusts us as well. We know this because He put our salvation in our hands. He knew we could save ourselves. He knew we would save ourselves by saving each other. As we remove the blocks to His Awareness, the memory of Who we are comes back to mind. Knowing Who my brother is, knowing he must be worthy, I can only love him and help him in any way I can to regain his memory. We are one with each other so how could I do otherwise?
If there is anyone in my life that I become impatient with, I remember how long we have existed in this dream world, resisting our own awakening. And yet, God still loves us, still finds us worthy, and still waits patiently for us to turn our awareness to Him. I can be patient with my brothers and let them awaken in their own way at the time that is right for them.
May I never forget that while much has been seen, nothing has happened, that there is no world, that bodies are just images we make so that we can pretend to be separate and seek for specialness. When I keep this in mind, I am able to detach from the story long enough to see the lesson it has for me. I remind myself that all things are lessons God would have me learn because His love for me is unfailing. I have learned to appreciate the lessons in my life knowing they are bringing me Home.
