When we start turning our lives over to the care and love of the God of our understanding, it does not mean that we get to sit back and just say, “okay God, You’ve got this.”  It means we have decided that clearly our best intentions have not gotten us to where we would like to be. That we realize we are not in control and that we stop think and listen to what our Higher Power has to tell us. It means we seek.

There are very few of us who would look at an infant and say here’s the info, okay now you know it.  It takes practice.  Babies though have this great gift that so many of us have lost along the way.  They have the desire to learn.  Every child has this, though sometimes not in the way we would like them to.  I can’t say as I’ve ever seen a child learning to walk that just sits down and gives up and never gets back up again.  Even those with disabilities continue to strive.  Until someone shares an outlook of learned helplessness.  So is our journey.

When we turn our life over to the God of our understanding, beautiful things can happen.  We can fall down, we can bonk our head, we can bruise a knee…oh wait I’m talking about learning to walk  😉

In ACIM it talks about learning being a vehicle to Miracles.  And there are two ways to look at things “as if everything is a miracle or nothing is”.  To a child walking in that moment is elative, beautiful and I would guess a miracle! Those moments of learning are nothing once the child has learned to walk.

The same is true in turning our lives over to the God of our understanding, our worst decisions, usually the result of ego, have made a mess of our lives.  It takes time in this world to correct.  And then there are the miracles.  “Errors of the ego, the correction of error begins with the relinquishment of the ego.”  ACIM T. 9.III.2:3

We know this because it is our own worst thinking that got us here.  Step 2 invites us to turn that over to our Higher Power.  This does involve the relinquishment of ego.  It inolves listening to one of the three components that we are made up of.  It involves the spiritual aspect.

But it involves our committment to work hard, to sometimes fall down, to be open to learning, to forgive ourselves making mistakes, we can’t learn when we refuse to accept we don’t know.  If we knew, there would be no reason to learn.  God’s got this, I don’t.  “I can’t, God can, I think I’ll let him.”

  1. Nice work. I really like your writing style. I was just working on a piece about dual diagnosis (addiction and mental illness) when the blog suddenly closed and nothing saved. Arg!

    • The spirit is telling you something 🙂 God knows best there will be something spectacular in that post you would have missed otherwise :)) 🙏❤️🙏
