THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
One thing that keeps me rational is a sense of loyalty to the other members of my group. I know I’d be letting them down if I ever took a step backward again. When I was in turmoil, I wasn’t loyal to anybody. I should have been loyal to my family, but I wasn’t. I let them down by my disruptive behavior. When I came into this program, I found a group of people who not only were helping each other to recover but were loyal to each other by staying rational themselves. Am I loyal to my group and this program?
MEDITATION FOR THE DAY
Calmness is constructive of good; agitation is destructive of good. I should not rush into action. I should first be calm and seek guidance. Then I should act only as God directs me through my conscience. Faith and trust will keep me calm when all around me are agitated. Calmness is trust in action. I should seek all things that can help me cultivate calmness. To attain material things, the world learns to attain speed. To attain spiritual things, I must learn to attain a state of calm.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
I pray that I may learn how to have inner peace. I pray that I may be calm so that God can work through me.
