Lesson 235 God In His Mercy Wills That I Be Saved

Part 2:2 WHAT IS SALVATION

Lesson 235

God In His Mercy Wills That I Be Saved.

  1. I need but look upon all things that seem to hurt me, and with perfect certainty, assure myself, “God wills that I be saved from this,” and merely watch them disappear.  I need but keep in mind my Father’s Will for me is only happiness, to find that only happiness has come to me.  And I need but remember that God’s Love surrounds His Son and keeps his sinlessness forever perfect, to be sure that I am saved and safe forever in His Arms.  I am the Son He loves.  And I am saved because God in His mercy wills it so.
  2. Father, Your holiness is mine.  Your Love created me and made my sinlessness forever part of You.  I have no guilt nor sin in me, for there is none in You.

All those things that seem to hurt me?  God wills that I be saved from it.  The snubs, accusations, mean words, past abuse, mockery, and infidelity – the betrayal from family and friends and lovers, all that hurt, but even worse the times in which I hurt others.  They come to me, those dark spots of shame, sorrow, and would-be hopelessness and I would cringe inside. Except now I know what to do! I call upon Holy Spirit, ever with me: “Please shine your light upon this, so it will be undone.  I don’t want this anymore.  God wills that I be saved from this.”  And then I merely watch them disappear.

Some claim not the tender conscience, as if this is an attribute that makes them strong and invulnerable – but their bodies tell another story.  When we hide our darkness behind tough exteriors, when we rumble about too big for our britches, bloated with our own importance, claiming no need of God’s mercy, we reveal the hidden lies, broken hearts, and lonely despair from the projections we would cast upon others.   

God wills that we be saved from this!  No need to protect what in the end eats us alive inside and out, destroys our relationships, and wreaks havoc in time.  God’s holiness is ours.  His Love created us and made us sinless forever part of Him.  We have no guilt or sin in us, for there is none in our Father, Who made us like Himself.  Amen.

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
