Recovery Meditations ~ Ready ~ One Day at a Time ~ March 28, 2011

"If we wait for the moment when

everything .... absolutely everything

is ready ... we shall never begin."

Ivan Turgenev

This was one of my biggest obstacles in

Recovery: I wanted everything to be

perfect. This type of thinking kept me

stuck for many years in the

disease. Instead of my program being One

Day At A Time, it was always "one day

later and I will do your will God."

Now I know that Today

is all I have. I

have no guarantees for tomorrow. So I

let go and let God, and do the best I

can. I have discovered that I do not

have to work a perfect program. Not

everything has to be just "right."


One day at a time I do the footwork that is required of me and leave the results to God.
