MAY 9 Reflection for the Day
“Perfect courage,” wrote La Rochefocauld, “means doing unwitnessed what we would be capable of with the world looking on.” As we grow in the Gamblers Anonymous Program, we recognize persistent fear for what it is, and we become able to handle it. We begin to see each adversity as a God-given opportunity to develop the kind of courage that is born of humility, rather than of bravado.
Do I realize that whistling to keep up my courage is merely good practice for whistling?
Today I Pray
May I find courage in my Higher Power. Since all things are possible through God, I must be able to overcome the insidious fears that haunt me – so often fears of losing someone or something that has become important in my life. I pray for my own willingness to let go of those fears.
Today I Will Remember
Praying is more than whistling in the dark.
