Homeless Termites “Pay Forward” #8

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is –Homeless Termites. Our Father’s greatness is a gift of grace that I should humbly receive, yet, at times I let these little guys undermine the very foundation of my relationship with our Loving Father. No wonder I need the A.A. spiritual principles to restore me to sanity, as if I ever had any. I hate the idea of my making anyone homeless. However, this little day-in-day-out stuff I’m calling termites, need to go. They are real present danger. These little guys can cause foundation problems to our relationships. Termites destroy more property than all the fires, floods, wind, and hail, and so it is with any area of our human condition. Because of the possible high cost the “big” problems force us to address then or run away. With the “little” stuff we don’t have to do anything or they are not important enough to matter. One way or another, we often stuff these little guys. One termite doesn’t matter, but when they build up in large numbers, watch out. It is best to deal with all problems AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Each of us has latent gifts to claim and share, but these little termites undermine our confidence. Failing in some little thing I lack faith in what exists within me because I lack faith in Who exists within me. I am reminded that the food I ate today me being transformed into everything we call life. Am I trying to make Him Homeless? Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
