Lesson 257 – Let me remember what my purpose is.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Let me remember my goal, my purpose, my function today that I may unify my thoughts and actions meaningfully.  Forgiveness is my function here.  Forgiveness brings me happiness and peace.  For give ness is for giving everything I believe in to the Holy Spirit — I lay my beliefs as gifts on His altar and in so doing am restored wholly to What Already Is.


Let me remember what my purpose is.

 If I forget my goal I can be but confused, unsure of what I am, and thus conflicted in my actions.  No one can serve contradicting goals and serve them well.  Nor can he function without deep distress and great depression.  Let us therefore be determined to remember what we want today, that we may unify our thoughts and actions meaningfully, and achieve only what God would have us do this day.

Father, forgiveness is Your chosen means for our salvation.  Let us not forget today that we can have no will but Yours.  And thus our purpose must be Yours as well, if we would reach the peace You will for us.
