Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Our hungers lead us to what will satisfy
Hunger serves us well. Physical hunger prompts us to eat the food we need to promote and maintain health. Emotional hunger sends us in search of companionship, intimacy, and love. Our hunger for achievement fuels our contribution to the work of the world. And our spiritual hunger leads us to a Power greater than ourselves. Peace, unity, goodwill all of these and more, we hunger for.
If we find ourselves trying to satisfy our hunger in ways that don’t work, it’s time to reassess and make changes. That’s what we do when we come to the Twelve Step program, admitting that our false satisfactions have gotten out of hand and are threatening destruction.
The satisfaction of our various hungers is within reach. Much of what we crave we will find within ourselves as we develop a relationship with a Higher Power.
I will explore my hunger today, so that it may lead me to what satisfies.
