Daily Reflections


Faith, to be sure, is necessary, but faith alone can avail nothing. We
can have faith, yet keep God out of our lives.

As a child I constantly questioned the existence of God. To a
“scientific thinker” like me, no answer could withstand a thorough
dissection, until a very patient woman finally said to me, “You must
have faith.” With that simple statement, the seeds of my recovery
were sown!
Today, as I practice my recovery — cutting back the weeds of
alcoholism — slowly I am letting those early seeds of faith to grow and
bloom. Each day of recovery, of ardent gardening, brings the Higher
Power of my understanding more fully into my life. My God has
always been with me through faith, but it is my responsibility to have
the willingness to accept His presence.
I ask God to grant me the willingness to do His will.
