FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


AMBITION

“The child without ambition is like a watch with a broken spring.”

~ R.W. Stockman ~

It is not wrong to have ambition. It is not wrong to want to be somebody. The tragedy is that this has to be said!

For too long, I played the tapes in my head that discouraged ambition and creative pride. I confused humility with timidity and self-abuse. I waited for things to happen, rather than making them happen for myself.

Today I know I am a creature of God, created to create. God is at work in my life. I am part of God’s miracle for the world.

God, may I always have ambition for those things that are good and true.
