Aug. 21, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Friday, Aug. 21, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Seeking growth

We are where we are for a reason. As long as that reason remains, we remain where we are. If we aren’t where we think we should be, working the program will help us get to where our deepest self longs to be. This is growth.

And growth is work. We must be willing to do the simple things that our new understanding asks of us. We are never given more than we can handle, and the loving help we need along the way is always available. But we never get this help in advance, only as we need it.

Am I seeking growth?

Higher Power, help me want to grow and be willing to do the simple things, day by day, that add up to big changes.

  1. Thanks for sharing …luck, now, in your life, has NOTHING to do with it. Believe me, there comes a time for all of us when we can’t out-run our truths, try as hard or run as fast as we can. Maybe THEN we can get to the business of getting ourselves straight. Bless you, and sincerest best hopes.
