Reflection for the Day
I know today that “stopping in for a drink” will never again be—for me—simply killing a few minutes and leaving a buck on a bar. In exchange for the first drink, what I’d pluck down now would be my bank account, my family, our home, our car, my job, my sanity, and probably my life. It’s too big a price, and too great a risk. Do you remember your last drunk?
Today I Pray
May I be strong in the knowledge that God’s spirit is with me at all times. May I learn to feel that spiritual presence. May I know that nothing is hidden from God. Unlike the world, which approves or disapproves of my outward behavior, God sees all that I do, think, or feel. If I seek to do God’s will, I can always count on reward for me—peace of mind.
