ACIM Lesson 185 notes.

I want the peace of God.


“For you was peace created, given you by its Creator, and established as His own eternal gift.”

In the lesson it spoke of things we wish for more then the peace of God. I thought of my want for better connection to others. I can put that aside to not replace ‘Heaven and the peace of God’. I was given a gift when I read paragraph 13.

“No one can lose and everyone must gain whenever any gift of God has been requested and received by anyone. God gives but to unite. To take away is meaningless to Him. And when it is as meaningless to you, you can be sure you share one Will with Him, and He with you. And you will also know you share one Will with all your brothers, whose intent is yours.”

“God gives but to unite.”

God’s peace will unite me with my brothers and sisters.

“I want the peace of God.”

I ask, from my heart, my body, my mind, and my soul.


This is all I have ever wanted. Being an optimist, seeing the bright side, turning away from difficulties, have all been in the cause of wanting God’s peace on Earth … for me and for All. The lesson says that the peace of God is mine already. I ask for what He wills for me!

What if I have the peace of God now present in my life, but I expect that I am to be doing more?
