Who’s In Charge?

I’ve always admired others who have the control to follow through with commitments. They complete classes they sign up for, they finish projects, and they do these things while keeping themselves in a healthy state. I have been watching the Olympics and am in awe of the dedication and commitment of these athletes. Talk about control! Today, I choose to give control to my Higher Power, and I wait in anticipation as to what is going to occur. I am truly grateful for being able to give up the control. My life is preordained, my job is to remain open, willing and as honest as I can be, particularly when it comes to any control issues that may arise. Sometimes just sitting back and letting life unfold for me can be a real treat, like opening a gift. 💗

  1. Thank The Lord for this day and for all that is in it.
    My times are in His hand.
    My soul rests with Him, my Anamchara.

    I’ve spoken previously about my morning thoughts and I hope to illustrate in a meaningful way their progression as I assume I am spiritually progressing.
    These precious moments happen in the coming awake time and I want to draw a contrast to what it used to be like, allowing room for consideration of what happened and try to describe the contrast from then to now.
    I remember many mornings awakening in a sense of near panic for various reasons but reflecting the ambiance of fear I was so accustomed to that it seemed normal to me.
    Lots of times it was about meeting a schedule.
    Lots of times it was about undertaking a new task and feeling inadequately prepared.
    Often the thought of drinking was present knowing that it relieved if only temporarily the tension and stress that seemed to be ever present.

    The mark of an alcoholic was on me.

    Something happened; something deeply spiritual began to happen when I followed suggestions to pray each morning simply asking God to help me get through the day without taking a drink.
    He did.
    I began to feel a little true gratitude.
    A desire for expansion of spiritual life flickered as a newly lit candle.

    A while later which I’m sure was the appointed time I began to wake very often with thoughts of God and feelings of Thanksgiving for a good night sleep and thankfulness for having found the Mercy prayer which often assisted in getting a good night’s rest and then lo and behold the experience of worshiping God in spirit was and is enjoyed.

    So morning thoughts……

    God is in control.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted 12th stepper.

  2. His will, not mine.
    On earth, as it is in heaven.
    Powerful word “as”
    At the same time, in the same way, because. All three.
    That is reality.
    What my ego/ emotion/ self centredness may conjure up-illusion.
    As I contemplate Him, illusion dissolves and His reality becomes manifest.
    I become fit for His purpose and to follow His will- to love my neighbour as myself.
    At the same time, in the same way, because we are all one and the same.
    Grateful for the Gift.

  3. Top of the mid day morning family,
    The power of my will got me a chair, cup, and a chip.
    The power of His will allows me peace, freedom, and a spiritual vacation every day. But then again, we do get a free all expense paid trip around the sun every year.
    Do I believe that He has power to change my life?
    Do I trust that He has the power to change my life?
    Didn’t Divine Mercy promise eternal life?
    Today, I’m learning that when I focus on the positives and my appreciations of the daily moments, then it’s a lot harder to worry about everything else.
    Three greatest words,
    Thanks be to God

    It’s a good day to have a good smile day.
