JULY 24 Reflection for the Day
How, exactly, can a person turn his or her own will and life over to the care of a Higher Power? All that’s needed is a beginning, no matter how small. The minute we put the key of willingness in the lock, the latch springs open. Then the door itself starts to open, perhaps ever so slightly; in time we find that we can always open it wider. Self-will may slam the door shut again, and it often does. But the door can always be reopened, time and time again if necessary, so long as we use our key of willingness.
Have I reaffirmed my decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God, as I understand Him?
Today I Pray
May I renew my decision to turn my will and my life over to a Higher Power. May my faith be staunch enough to keep me knowing that there is, indeed, a power greater than I am. May I avail myself of that Power simply by being willing to walk humbly with my God.
Today I Will Remember
Self-will minus self equals will.
