Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“The first and great commandment is ‘Don’t let them scare you.’”
– Elmer Davis
In my sobriety I still need to deal with fear. A fear of people, a fear of not being good enough, a fear of saying the wrong thing, a fear of not looking “good enough” — fear still haunts me in sobriety.

However, my recovery also tells me that I am a child of God. I am a beautiful and powerful human being because God not only made me, but has shared something of His precious divinity with me. I am good enough. In Him I can afford to risk. Love must begin with the recognition of self.

Today I must remember that people are not “out to get me”. I need not make myself the victim. People are much the same inside, and we all need each other to survive.

Thank You for the power to live with my fear.
