Meditation for the Day
The heart of working this program is learning to do God’s will rather than our own. Once we accept that, the next question is: How can we know for sure what God’s will is? Since we don’t know the mind of God, how can we be certain that we know what God wants us to do? All people of faith deal with this question, but people in this fellowship have a clear advantage in finding the answer. If you are an addict, then God’s will for you is that you get clean and stay clean. So, any action you take that helps you to achieve or maintain your recovery is God’s will for you. When we are faced with a decision between one of two choices, and we want to know what God’s will for us is, we just need to ask: Which of these two will be more helpful to my recovery, to my staying clean? Which one will help me to grow in the spiritual principles of this program? Once we get a clear sense as to which choice is more supportive of our recovery, then we will know which one is God’s will for us today.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I will be willing to ask what God’s will for me is before I make any decision of consequence. I ask my Higher Power to help me discern the impact my decisions might have on my recovery so I can make choices that help me stay clean.
