I greet The Indwelling Healer.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - The Power Of Our Word. The way we choose to use our words, both within and out into the world of expression, is our choice. “Wisdom, strength, courage and all harmonious conditions are the direct result of spiritual power, with which we are already equipped” Ernest Homes, “Alcoholism.” Living A.As’ simple suggestions, as I understand them, freed me to do and to be our Father’s Love and Will. I didn’t have useful verbal skills to deal with life. I spent much of the first year and a half in A.A. learning how to read, focusing on seeking and finding a workable understanding of our spiritual principles, and I feasted on other heroes like Emmet Fox, Henry Drummond, and many others. It seems as though, when our Father wants to express to us, what He is like, He makes a beautiful character. I’ve come to understand that we could not see those wonderful attribute in another person if we didn’t have at least a tiny bit of that character ourselves. I find it useful to look for that gift of grace in others, and my experience of what I long for awakens and grows. We have been called to live in freedom – not freedom to satisfy our selfishness, but freedom to serve one another in love. This will lead us to someplace worth going, and being our purposeful life, our world needs us to be part of its healing, today. Thy Love Thy Will be done.
