Oct. 27, 2016 - Readings in Recovery: Today's Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016
Today's thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

The reality is that changes are coming . . .They must come. You must share in bringing them.
 -- John Hersey


Change. It's scary. It's hard. It's needed. Sometimes it feels good; other times it feels bad. But one thing is for sure: it keeps on happening.

Just when our life seems settled, it changes. We can't stop life. We can't stay this age forever. The world changes. Life moves on. There are always new things to do and learn.

Change means we're always beginners in some ways. We need to ask for wisdom and courage. We get it by listening, by praying, by meditating. When we ask, our Higher Power will teach us to be part of good changes.

Prayer for the Day
Higher Power, help me believe that Your plans call for good changes.

Action for the Day
Today I'll think about the changes in my life. I've lived through a lot. I'll be okay when more changes come, with God's help. I can keep on growing.
