Thy Will Be Done

Not my will, but Thine, be done.

The quote talks about the courage it takes to risk letting go of my will, and the trust I need to Let Go and Let God. When I stopped long enough to take a good, hard look at my own life, I could see where my will had not gotten me where I wanted to be, or even close to it. The bottom line was that I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I had to turn my will and my life over – every day, and sometimes several times during any given day. I was so used to expecting the worst in life, that it took a while to trust the process of recovery. One thing about trusting God – He is always there. It took a while for me to learn to trust the Program and to trust myself, once again. My faith in God was tested, and each and every time God came through. I simply had to stop “doing” and start letting my life unfold as God wills it. Faith works, recovery works, and the God of my understanding certainly works!!!

    Thy will be done…
    Very powerful prayer to override myself will run riot. I’m asking God to align my thinking and actions as His will. And that’s tough. I was born with King Clay’s free will and my will wants Burger King style will; have it your way. Today, I’m learning that I don’t have to live, play, act, and be perfect.
    His will is reality; His truth is perfect. Divine Mercy only desires a relationship. His will ensures that I’ll be there……in His eternal destination.

    Friday funny: All we have do is the Hokie Pokie and turn ourselves around, and that’s what it’s all about.
