Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

I shall tell you a great secret, my friend. Don not wait for the last judgement, it takes place every day.

–Albert Camus

“Later.” How often have we said this? This trick help us avoid the tasks of the day. Life is full of task–many fun, some boring, others hard. Can I accept the task my Higher Power gives me, easy or hard?

When we used alcohol or other drugs, we’d avoid task, if they became hard for us. We believed we had more control than we really did. We started to believe we could control outcomes. What we really were doing was setting ourselves up for a great fall. We had to face the fact that when our Higher Power had given us a task, we said no, and turned away. Thus, we turned away from the guiding hand of our Higher Power.

Prayer for the Day: God, help me face You and the tasks You give me. Make me a grateful student of life.

Today’s Action: Today I will talk with friends. I will tell them what tasks I’m working on.
