Universal Reading February 2023 Forgive Yourself for Believing You Can Fix What Is Perfect

This is me trying to understand what it is all about. Using My understanding of A Course in Miracles.

1. You may be able to see their role in the Universal Plan but please understand not all things will be “fixed” during this time.

I guess I am still struggling with this one. Everybody has their own time and way to come back into the truth that God IS.

Jesus says that we each will eventually get our fill of suffering and turn back to God.

For those who are hearing that call it may be very challenging that everything cannot just be organized and set right once we are finally willing to accept that God has the only power that there could ever be.

Sometimes disorder must come before the calm.

I find myself thinking that it is my place to teach others, especially my adult children or grandchildren but I have discovered that it is the Holy Spirit that does the teaching that matters in this world, and that the Holy Spirit has to be invited by the individual.

Then there are times that I do not correct a situation because they are old enough to know when something is inappropriate and I get looked at like I am a lousy mother, as if they would listen to me anyway. Chuckle, it is important to remember that God is there Source of strength even when they think it is supposed to be you.

There is nothing I can do to bring another person to the place where they are willing to receive God and His Guidance.

His Guidance is what I have lived by all of my life and when my adult children come to me that is what I share. Sadly, they just think that is a copout and do not come to me anymore. Or they fake it and I get the blame for some decision that I had no part in.

These are some of the things that I “think” I see in my experience.

It is not for me to fix things. It is for me to accept forgiveness, offer forgiveness, and to know that God IS.

There is peace in this and in remembering that we are all as God created us and not what…
