Aug. 12, 2014 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden


serenity prayer 6Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

God creates. People rearrange.
 — Joseph Casey

Being alive is our invitation to act in fresh, inventive ways. All it takes is concentrating on our inner vision in combination with external reality. The components for accomplishing any task are at our fingertips, awaiting discovery.

Our burdens are lightened when we understand that all situations are resolvable — no mystery need leave us in the dark for long. Just as surely as we each exist, so exists every element we need to solve any problem or chart any new course. Our purpose in life is to select those elements that will satisfy the need. We each have been blessed with this capability for proper selection.

The day promises challenge and many choices. I can successfully handle all possibilities.

The Promise of a New Day by Karen Casey and Martha Vanceburg
