May 19 Reflection for the Day
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us,”wrote Oliver Wendell Holmes.I was never able to look at what was within me until I came to Gamblers Anonymous and I heard my story told.Then I no longer had my “uniqueness” to hide behind.What was more,the person seemed a lot happier telling it than I was hearing it.I was jealous of a winner – always had been – so I began,ever so slowly to tell my own story.
Am I surprised today that all that was within me could possibly have been kept secret so long from the outside world.
Today I Pray
Regardless of what lies ahead or behind me,may I remember that I must have God within me to guide me through difficult situations.When I am not in a difficult situation,may I thank God – and know that He is the reason I am where I am today.
Today I Will Remember
To make room for God within me.
