    JULY 19 Reflection for the Day

    Many of us come to the Gamblers Anonymous Program professing that we’re agnostic or atheistic. As someone once put it, our will to disbelieve is so strong that we prefer a date with the undertaker to an experimental and open-minded search for a Higher Power. Fortunately for those of us with closed minds, the constructive forces in the GA Program almost always overcome our obstinacy. Before long, we discover the bountiful world of faith and trust. It was there all along, but we lacked the willingness and open-mindedness to accept it.

    Does obstinacy still sometimes blind me to the power for good that resides in faith?

    Today I Pray

    I want to thank my Higher Power for this opportunity to open my mind; to learn again about faith and trust; to realize that my wanderings from honesty and reality did not change God’s place within me or God’s loving concern for me. May I know that it was my own doing that I lost faith. Thank God for another chance to believe.

    Today I Will Remember

    Discard the will to disbelieve.

    • I’m spiritual. Love God. 40 yrs sobriety, by the grace of God, yet here I am with a gambling addiction. Go figure. I guess God isn’t finished with me yet. Must need more life lessons. Part of the process of life and learning.

    • Meditation is often used as a tool to promote mindfulness and suika game self-awareness. By taking the time to quiet the mind and be present in the moment, individuals in recovery can better understand their thoughts and emotions.
