Miracle Toolbox: Week 3 | Sadness Need Not Be

Welcome Mighty Companions to the third week into our I am safe in God healing journey!

This week I would like to invite you to go into meditation with the Holy Spirit for a few minutes and recall a time when you felt sad or depressed. Unfortunately, a lot of people experience these emotions during this time of year because of going through the holidays and the darker, colder winter months. Many people often have these feelings hidden away in the sub-conscious part of their minds for decades. The good news about all of this is that there is a quick way out and you do not have to keep living or re-living feelings of sadness and depression. 

In the Text chapter 4, section IV titled This Need Not Be, Jesus very specifically addresses the problem of feeling sadness, depression, anxiety and guilt, and how we can begin to learn how to shift out of the feelings almost immediately. This is great news! The surprise here is that we do not necessarily need to feel stuck in these types of feelings for days, weeks or months at a time! Yay! 

The tool that we are going to add to our Miracle Toolboxes today is Lesson 100 from the Workbook for Students: My part is essential to God’s plan for salvation. This particular lesson is a great compliment to the Text reading because Jesus gives us step-by-step instructions on how to shift ourselves out of feeling sadness and depression in the manner of minutes or hours. What a wonderful tool to add to our Miracle Toolboxes! 

Please watch my video to learn more and how I personally applied this teaching and tool when I too was recently feeling sad and down. 

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul

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.
