Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the Peace of God.
I have been blessed by A Course in Miracles for many years. It remains a text of wonderful insight and valuable lessons. I hope to include daily lessons in this blog as I find them connected to some issue or message that might have value to you. The line quoted in this blog has gotten me through many moments of emotional stress. One particular episode was when my late wife Esther was having what was to be a routine colonoscopy. It turned out ok, but in the moment of the procedure, the Dr. in charge thought he might have perforated Esther's colon. I am not always the best at waiting, but for three hours I prayed and believed the line, "Nothing real can be threatened." We are, each one of us, spiritual beings having an earthly experience. We are all perfect in the eyes of God. We may walk away, but God does not. The price of our salvation has already been paid, nothing further need be done, but to accept and go forward Knowing we are in God's hands.
"Nothing real, that which God has already saved, can ever be threatened." if we but say "thank you," to God. Esther was fine and I did make it through without nearly as much stress as I would sometimes have experienced. I kept God's promise and was blessed. In fact, therein lies the Peace of God.
