The Gifts of God

The \”Gifts of God\” comes up in the ACIM and it is mentioned in the lesson I\’m doing today: \”I am entrusted with the gifts of God.\”

My first thought is, \”What gifts of God?\” So I read the lesson again. I doesn\’t really say; just hints. So I resort to asking the Holy Spirit. I get a clear thought, \”You don\’t need to know in words.\” This response seems like a miracle to me because if my ego understood what the gifts were, then I\’d be sure that it was wrong but I\’d think I knew what I had.

So I went on and put together a chant for my evening workout:

I am entrusted with the gifts of God.
Christ\’s hand _ _ has touched my shoulder.
He walks with me and says it isn\’t so.
He reminds me of the gifts I have forgotten.

The whole thing becomes believable to me because I am certain Christ\’s hand has touched my shoulder.

I went for my run this morning with yesterday\’s lesson playing in my head. Something about \”Christ\’s power….I count on God…\” seemed to put fire in me. I ran the same 16 miles I did the day before but 23 minutes faster. I am not in marathon shape; but I could do a 12 hour race because no one cares how far you go, just that you stay on your feet for 12 hours.

This evening, I rode my ex-bike for 25 minutes and the elliptical of 45 minutes. Why do an evening workout after a hard morning run?
