Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
… all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.
— Julian of Norwich
Why are we prone to exaggerating the seriousness of the circumstances in our lives? Perhaps it’s because we lived for years barely on the fringe of sensible choices. We reacted hysterically to all manner of experiences, the mundane as well as the momentous. Our reactions could turn any situation sour. At long last we are learning a new behavior, but it takes practice.
As we learn to rely on a Higher Power to help us handle our experiences, we begin to grow in peace and the belief that all is well. Even when we are tormented by a decision, we can have faith that our Higher Power will lead us where we need to go. Our part of the bargain is to ask for help and to be open to guidance.
I will know peace today because I will trust my Higher Power’s guidance in the situations I face. All will be well if I do my part.
