Jan. 5, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward.
 — Spanish proverb

The beauty of the Third Step is that there’s no real work for us to do. Making a decision to turn our will and our life over to the care of God requires no energy, no movement. We don’t have to grit our teeth. It’s only a decision and can be made in the blink of an eye. The action comes from God.

We don’t need to do anything to earn the grace of God. In fact, there isn’t any way we could earn it. This grace is ours when we let it come to us. Trusting God’s love for us is all it takes.

I will rest knowing that my life is in God’s hands.
