Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.
— Lewis Carroll
We must make many choices in our recovery. Some of these will strengthen our character, for they will be hard to make and sometimes even harder to accept. One of the most meaningful sayings in our program is Let go and let God. We understand its true meaning when we are faced with adversity and we feel needlessly hurt.
If we are to let go of a problem, we must feel in our hearts that no matter what the outcome, our Higher Power has a special purpose for us. We may not be able to see that purpose now, but if we let our Higher Power guide us, we will be guided down the right path. If we do our best to detach from our pain and try to see a more peaceful future, we will feel secure in God’s hands. Given this security, we’ll be free to direct our energy toward positive, healthy choices that will bring us more of the happiness we deserve.
Today help me let go and let God, even when it hurts.
