SQUIRREL NOTES: It’s hard to surrender to the concept of the Higher Power sometimes; although I believe in it, I need to try and surrender to this concept. I spend so much of my time trying to “force” situations to be how I want them to be – I need to let go and let God take over. I don’t usually post about Higher Powers, but I am today.
“We believe that our Higher Power will take care of us.” – Basic Text, p. 58
We all have times when it seems as though our lives are falling apart. There are days, or even weeks, when it seems that everything that can go wrong is going wrong. Whether it’s the loss of a job, the death of a loved one, or the end of a relationship, we doubt that we’ll survive the changes taking place in our lives.
It’s during the times when the world is crashing down around our ears that we find our greatest faith in a loving Higher Power. No human being could relieve our suffering; we know that only God’s care can provide the comfort we seek. We feel broken but we go on, knowing that our lives will be repaired.
As we progress in our recovery and our faith in our Higher Power grows, we are sure to greet the difficult times with a sense of hope, despite the pain we may be in. We need not despair, for we know that our Higher Power’s care will carry us through when we can’t walk on our own.
Just for Today: I will rely on God’s care through the painful times, knowing that my Higher Power will always be there.
