His Will

So today is a day of reflection. Here is the perfect spot. I know it will soon be revealed IF I just listen!

What is your perfect spot to reflect and how do you listen?

    I have been reading this little book one day at a time for over 29 years now and like so much of our wisdom literature each time I return it is fresh and new and wonderful and seems to contain something which was never there before.
    How about that!

    This book was originally published and entitled “God Calling, by Two Listeners” sometime around 1930 and was widely available and read by many spiritual seekers before and during the formative years of Alcoholics Anonymous. We don’t know for certain that Bill W or Dr. Bob read this little book though we do know they were spiritual seekers for some years before providence brought them together and AA was born.

    Here is today’s reading:

    Thought for the Day

    Every time we go to an A.A. meeting, every time we say the Lord’s Prayer, every time we have a quiet time before breakfast, we’re paying a premium on our insurance against taking that first drink. And every time we help another alcoholic, we’re making a large payment on our drink insurance. We’re making sure that our policy doesn’t lapse. Am I building up an endowment in serenity, peace, and happiness that will put me on easy street for the rest of my life?
    Meditation for the Day
    I gain faith by my own experience of God’s power in my life. The constant, persistent recognition of God’s spirit in all my personal relationships, the ever accumulating weight of evidence in support of God’s guidance, the numberless instances in which seeming chance or wonderful coincidence can be traced to God’s purpose in my life. All these things gradually engender a feeling of wonder, humility, and gratitude to God. These in turn are followed by a more sure and abiding faith in God and His purposes.
    Prayer for the Day
    I pray that my faith may be strengthened every day. I pray that I may find confirmation of my life in the good things that have come into my life.

    From the beginning it was one of the things that inspired and motivated me.

    It still does.

  2. Reflection spot?
    The quiet place within…wherever I physically may be; there is where I can find what I seek.
    It’s more readily available of course some days…but you have shown me that to slow down, to become softer, to sense my blessings, to dwell upon the Divine can begin the connection process. And that the more I do so, the more readily available I can sense His love which is always here. And as I feel, I can become.
    Grateful for the Gift
