March 26, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Saturday, March 26, 2016

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

Being willing

People often ask, “How does the program work?” The how of this program is Honesty, Open-mindedness, and Willingness. Often we must pray for willingness; sometimes we even have to pray to be willing to be willing!

We have very stubborn wills. If surrendered daily, however, they can accomplish much good for others and ourselves. Surely those who say, “I will, I will” and don’t are not as close to the heart of God as those who say “I will not,” but do!

Am I really willing?

God, help me realize that to do your will for me today, in however small a way, I must let go of my own will.
