Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - We Are His Channel. Our powerlessness need not block our making a good difference, as I am reminded that we are channels of our Father’s grace. Our prayers and meditations are like pipes, through which water is carried from a large mountain stream to a city some distance away (from heaven to earth). The pipes do not make the water willing to flow down from the hills, nor do they give it its power of blessing and refreshment. That is its very nature. All the pipes do is to determine the direction. In the same way, the very nature of our Father/Creator is to love and to bless. His love longs to come down to us with its quickening and refreshing streams. But He has left it to prayer and meditation to say where the blessing is channeled. He Has committed it to His believing humans to bring the living water to desert places. The Will of our Father/Creator to bless is dependent on the will of His children to say where the blessings go. As we accept and practice A.A.’s spiritual principles, so freely given, we never have to drink alcohol or do drugs again. “But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst” (John 4:14). Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
