FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

SELF

“The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.”

~ Job 33:4 ~

My spiritual journey involves a discovery of self. For years, I pretended to be what I was not, what I imagined myself to be, or what others wanted me to be.

Today I am beginning to know myself. I understand my needs and my strengths. I accept my weaknesses and live with my confusion. From the time I put down the glass, things have progressively gotten better, but there is still a great deal I do not understand. The daily violence and suffering, and my own personal greed, cowardice, and arrogance—where do they come from? I do not know, and that is okay. I still search. My suspicion is that the answer lies within my own insecurities.

In Your time, God, may I grow in my understanding of self.
