ACIM Lesson 98 notes.

I accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.


I accept my part, now. I feel comfortable.

We hear in the lesson that we are supported by the ‘guiltless’ who “do not doubt their own ability because they know their function will be filled completely in the perfect time and place.” They offer their gifts that we are meant to then pass onto the ‘uncertain’.

“We do not choose but for ourselves today.”

I accept my part.


Reading the lesson, my attention was on the emphasis given to the practice periods. I am resisting 5 minutes every hour as it seems infeasible to me. I do feel guilt now for not doing (or trying) and I will feel guilt later from not accomplishing it. The lesson does not soften my guilt by saying that they are just mistakes. Mistakes are wrong doing to me, reasons for guilt and shame. Why?

I always need to know why I should do something before I put int effort. The last paragraph helps …

“He is there once more to spend a little time with you.”

Its more appealing to me to just see the assignment as checking in with God every hour.

I also like Hollie’s suggestion …

“We are like undercover Love agents who are accepting the mission to love ourselves and each other.”


Dear Love, help me to remember to check in each hour.


I feel resistance to accepting this. I sense two reasons:

  1. I still hold that resistance to God’s plan for salvation like I still don’t understand what that means (when I change salvation to Christ, I feel better);
  2. “I will accept.” Am I willing to trust God? My mind still goes to scary thoughts that my life will be made difficult or that everything and everyone will be removed.

The lesson is very optimistic that our acceptance will bring only good and is a time for celebration that we’ve accepted God’s plan. The lesson says, “I will accept’ instead of “I accept”, as though it is still being worked on.

I am blessed. God’s way is always best. Why do I still resist?

Hollie has told us students that our teacher trusts us! (receiving = giving)

I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.

“What would you have me do? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say, and to whom?” WB, L71.

I think my practice periods need to be just sitting, open, instead of concern for repeating the words given in the lesson.
