Dear ones, miracles are part of an interlocking chain of forgiveness which, when completed, is the atonement. Atonement works all the time and in all the dimensions of time. Miracles represent freedom from fear. "Atoning" means "undoing." The undoing of fear is an essential part of the atonement value of miracles. For who can fear who knows the certainty of miracles? Miracles restore the mind to its fullness. By atoning for any sense of lack they establish perfect protection. The spiritual strength in the miracle leaves no room for intrusions.
