HIGHER THOUGHT FOR TODAY/JULY 12th
I want serenity and pray for it today. I locate the ways that I can risk just for this one day.
“…everything that I need I get — and when I get what I need I invariably find that it was just what I wanted all the time.” Depressed Anonymous
CLARIFICATION OF THOUGHT
This truth works out in my life the more I follow and work my program of the Twelve Steps of recovery. When I admitted that I was powerless over my depression and that my life was unmanageable, I began to come across people and the literature that I needed to work myself out of my depression. I had to take the next step and come to believe that a power greater than myself could restore me to sanity. I began to believe that I can get better. I can choose to feel a little better today. I am able to risk living just for today, and not in the fear that tomorrow I’ll probably feel like my old awful self once again. “What you seek will seek you.”
God, you didn’t create us to live in this continual fear and anxiety. You created us to find the joy and serenity that can be ours if we continue to search out and follow your will for us. From this day forward, we refuse to tolerate this sense of despair in our lives, but instead do something about it. Lead us on God, to what we need for today. We trust that you will.”
