40 Days of Light – Day 5

I choose the joy of God instead of pain.

We have a choice. We can allow our critical thoughts and experiences in the world be the envoy to pain, or what if we realized we had the power within us that makes all pain impossible. Our thoughts cannot hurt us. What happens in the world cannot harm us. It is our thoughts and beliefs that do. We can rise above. We can see the light of a new day. As Jesus says at the end of our reference (Lesson 190), “Pain is illusion; joy, reality. Pain is but sleep; joy is awakening. Pain is deception; joy alone is truth.” Today, watch your mind and choose your holiness. When you do, you will always choose the joy and peace of God.

Reference: Workbook Lesson 190 – I choose the joy of God instead of pain.

Please know we offer many free ACIM Resources on our website: www.miraclesone.org Our sole focus is on ACIM and its practice in our lives.


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
