April 28, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

Taking it slowly

Let’s not make haste and demand perfection at once – this would only blind us. If we are impatient, we cannot work a daily program. But by exercising patience, we learn to recognize daily opportunities for growth.

It is worth waiting for, striving for, and working to develop a relationship with our Higher Power. It cannot be done overnight. Let’s not go too fast, but count each day as a new opportunity.

Am I learning to take it slowly?

Higher Power, I pray that I may meet each day with patience and grow closer to You.
