FR.LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

ORATORY

“The finest eloquence is that which gets things done.”

~ David Lloyd George ~

I know how to talk. I know how to sound convincing. I know how to persuade a person as to my good intentions. Indeed such behavior was part of my manipulation for years.

Today I aim to walk the talk. I want to demonstrate what I say in the behavior I exhibit. The bottom line is action. Talking never stopped me from drinking; my physical refusal of the first drink was the start of my recovery.

God is to be discovered not merely in pious sentiments, as attractive as they may sound, but rather in the small steps of altered behavior. Am I doing what I am saying?

God, give me the courage to live my words.
