Mike Weber is a good friend of Helping Up Mission (see my 10/26/09 blog). He recently sent out this Thought for Today message.
In “How it Works” in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous you will find the following, “…we thought we could find an easier and softer way, but we could not.” The important thing to me is that it is in the past tense, “we could not.”
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Good advice, Mike. I believe I have experienced exactly what you are talking about.
Just for today, one day at a time.
