Lesson 274 Today Belongs to Love. Let Me Not Fear.

PART II.  SECTION 6: WHAT IS THE CHRIST?

Lesson 274 Today belongs to Love.  Let me not fear.

  1. Father, today I would let all things be as You created them, and give Your Son the honor for his sinlessness, the love of brother to his brother, and his Friend. Through this, I am redeemed. Through this as well the truth will enter where illusions were, light will replace all darkness, and Your Son will know he is as You created him.
  2. A special blessing comes to us today, from Him Who is our Father. Give this day to Him, and there will be no fear today because the day is given unto Love.[1]

Today belongs to Love! Let us not be afraid, let not our enemies triumph over us. Who and what are our enemies? The temptation to hate and despise our brothers. The temptation to let Creation become something other than it is and make sinners of the Sons of God, thus dishonoring Christ by shunning His gift of redemption for all. As we lay the shadows of darkness before Holy Spirit, truth will enter where illusions tried to take its place, light will shoo away the darkness, and we will know ourselves as God created us!

Jesus promises that a special blessing comes to us today from our heavenly Father as we give this day to Him. There will be no fear today. This day is given to Love.

This is the day we sincerely pray for those who would crush us in their spite and lack of understanding. This is the day we hold not their plots, lies, and threats against them. We let them off the hook! We ask Holy Spirit to give us His forgiving perception. This is the day we look without blame; we do not find fault. For today belongs to Love!

Holy Spirit, please shine your blessed light upon my hurt, bewilderment, and despair. Let me see love and not fear. Let not my ego triumph over me but let me love my brothers and forgive the ways in which they choose to hurt me. Let me see through Your perception, dear Friend, as I return to God. In Jesus name. 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.
