ACIM Lesson 316

Lesson 316: “What is the Last Judgement?”  “All gifts I give my brothers are my own.”

This lesson says, “Yet I trust You Who gave them to me will provide the means by which I can behold them, see their worth, and cherish them as only I want.”

Trusting in God can be absolutely a daunting task when we are not used to it.  

We may very much struggle when it comes to our faith.  We are asked to let God help us and trust He will when we ask for help.

This is a huge deal because we all have our own individual challenges when we try to do this.   

Trusting God is the only way to heal truly.

When we are human we have an infinite number of challenges that come up in our daily activities.  This is par for the course of our lives.

We are asked to not judge whatever we find in the maze of life.

It all works well when we give God permission to write our story. 

The ego likes its own version of the story and we get sidetracked and start to believe that the ego’s story is valid too.

The Course reminds us that our trust in God is absolutely the thing that save us from undue suffering.

When we struggle against what we see happening against us and we judge it harshly or even at all, we allow the edges in this ego’s harsh energy to penetrate us.  It leaves us wailing over the pain. 

The Course says that trusting God is always our answer. 

Trusting God is the way out of the nightmare.

Even if our lives continue to look like a nightmare, when we trust God suddenly our energy is buoyed up and we are able to sail over the battleground. 

Then we sit and have a conversation with God when things get hard.

Then, in our conversation, we can get into the groove of our serenity because we are asking God for help and giving God permission to sail our ship. 

This conversation with God reminds us that we are not alone.  We remember that we have all the support we need in the challenge because God is there with us.

Trust is something that we get better at over time, with practice.  

When we trust God, then our energy gets lighter because we are open to accepting things as God created them and we are not encumbered by that feeling of dread and panic over what the future holds. 

Our trust allows us to have grateful hearts whatever we see.  This is the best way to end our nightmare when we inundate the present with God’s light as is our trust of God, as well as a full heart of gratitude for the present.
