Who’s Doing The Works? “Pay Forward” Gift # 10


I greet The Indwelling Doer.

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Who’s Doing The Works?  “Don’t call me good, it’s the Father within doing The works.  Let me remember that we need to credit the results to our Father, to take off our mask and practice His Principles in all of our affairs. Our primary need is simple; being the individual we are. All we need has already been given. Alcoholics Anonymous gives us the tools we need to chip away all that is not who we are. Practicing hasn’t made it perfect, but it sure helps. Our choice to be discouraged by our failure, or we learn from it. The faith and love we have now is enough to grow on. Most of my troubles come when I have unrealistic expectations – “I” - cannot fulfill. However, when our Father is my only Source, and I trust Him to supply me with all I need, to do and to be His Will, nothing is impossible.  I am reminded of Jacob Riis’ affirmation. “When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet, at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”  It’s not just this time I’m affirming our Father as my only Source, but all which went before. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
