Weekly Focal Point
“God is present in all His creatures, but all are not equally aware of His presence.”
One Day At A Time Series
“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God…” says Step Eleven. This gives me the assurance that my conscious contact with Him depends entirely on me, on my desire for it. This great power is mine, constantly near and available for me to use. I will remind myself every day how much depends on my being aware of God’s influence in my life. I will accept His help in everything I do. Without such surrender to a superior wisdom, my life would be at the mercy of forces I cannot control. Meditation will bring me closer to God and to the divine qualities in my fellowmen who are also His children. Prayer will turn my thoughts away from my problems. As I meditate and pray, I am letting go of them and learning that their solution does not depend on me alone.
3 C’s of Al-Anon
- We didn’t CAUSE it
- We can’t CONTROL it
- We can’t CURE it
AND WE WON’T CONTRIBUTE TO IT TODAY
Considerations for Us
- Do I remember that my ability to be present in my life today is directly dependent on my prayer and meditative communication with God? When I do forget this principle am I willing to re-engage again?
- If my relationship with my Higher Power has become stagnant or distant, can I focus more attention on my communication with Him?
