Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
When we do not know which way to turn, let us not be too proud to ask for directions. We have found our way to a program which can guide us out of the confusion and into an ordered, satisfying way of life. In our program, there are people who can give us the directions we need, if we will ask for help.
There is much that we can do on our own thoroughly studying the literature, establishing firm contact with our Higher Power. When we hit a snag, however, or are unsure of how to handle a difficult situation, we need to promptly seek the assistance our group provides. In order to receive help, we usually need to ask for it.
The illusion that we knew how to manage our lives and did not have to follow anyone else’s directions was one of the causes of our difficulties and with life in general. Admitting that by ourselves we are powerless enables us to ask for the directions we need.
I ask for Your directions Lord.
