AUGUST 29 Reflection for the Day
Prayer can have many rewards. One of the greatest rewards is the sense of belonging it brings me. No longer do I live as a stranger in a strange land, alien in a completely hostile world. No longer am I lost, frightened, and purposeless. I belong. We find, in Gamblers Anonymous, that the moment we catch a glimpse of God’s will – the moment we begin to see truth, justice, and love as the real and eternal things in life – we’re no longer so deeply upset by all the seeming evidence to the contrary surrounding us in purely human affairs.
Do I believe that God lovingly watches over me?
Today I Pray
May I be grateful for the comfort and peace of belonging – to God the ultimately wise “parent” and to His family on earth. May I no longer need bumper stickers or boisterous groups to give me my identity. Through prayer, I am God’s.
Today I Will Remember
I find my identity through prayer.
