April 11, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Monday, April 11, 2016

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

It is the soul’s duty to be loyal to its own desires.
 — Rebecca West

Our soul’s pure desires, those that harm no one else, are really invitations from God for us to try new activities, to perhaps move along unfamiliar corridors, or tackle challenges that will carry us closer to our destiny. Fulfilling our desires can expand our knowledge of life, but even more, it can strengthen our trust in our Higher Power.

Perhaps our primary goal is to trust more in our Higher Power’s presence, loving guidance, and commitment to our growth. Our Higher Power is our most treasured friend and teacher, our most significant other. We’ll never be led astray with the guidance offered us for fulfilling our purest desires.

I will ask God for direction and attune myself to my innermost desires today.
