Being Before Doing

What we are comes before what we do. In order to produce good fruit, the tree has to be a good tree. If we are not whole, integrated, and in touch with ourselves and our Higher Power, the actions that we take will not be satisfying.

For us, being abstinent is more important than anything we do. When we are abstinent, all things are possible. We still have to make choices, deal with frustration and conflict, and accept some defeats, but we are coping with reality rather than escaping.

The best things that we do are those which our Higher Power does through us. Our role is to be ready and available, a sharpened tool which God may use. Often we do not see the ultimate results of our actions. We trust that what we do will be acceptable and according to God's will.

May I be what You intend.

You are reading from the book:

Food for Thought by Elisabeth L.
