Each Day a New Beginning

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

-—Eleanor Roosevelt—

How can we ever do that which seems impossible? Taking a class, quitting a job, leaving a destructive relationship behind, asking for help; none of these can we do alone or with ease. All of these we can handle when we rely on the help offered by the program, the help of one another, the help promised by our higher power. Tackling with God’s help that which seems impossible, reduces it to manageable size.It also deflates the power our fears have given it. That which we fear grows in proportion to our obsession with it. The more we fear a thing, the bigger it becomes, which in turn increases our fear. How lucky we are that God awaits our call for the strength, the companionship that is guaranteed us! We are in partnership, all the way, every day,

if we’d only recognize it. We can move toward and through anything. And the added benefit is that we come to trust our partnership. We soon know that all situations can be met. All experiences can be survived. Avoidance is no longer our technique for survival. A deep breath invites the inner strength to move through me. I will feel the exhilaration of God’s power. And I will know the excitement of growth and peace.
