KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

It’s gonna be a long hard drag, but we’ll make it.

~ Janis Joplin 

Some people start each day with a groan. They act like staying sober is no fun at all. They may have turned over their illness to their Higher Power. But they haven’t yet turned over their will and their life. They don’t see that a loving Higher Power can change them into happy people.

Maybe they don’t want to change. They just want to feel better. After all, that’s one reason we all took drugs—to feel better without changing. The program asks us to be willing to change. That’s how we become happier people.

Prayer for the Day
Higher Power, help me listen to Your voice. Teach me that following Your directions will make me happy.

Action for the Day
Today, I’ll list three things in my life that I haven’t yet turned over to my Higher Power. Why are these things so important to me? What can I do to turn them over?
