A Day at a Time

Reflection for the Day
“What if …”  How often we hear these words from newcomers to The Program. How often, in fact, we tend to say them ourselves. “What if I lose my job …,”  “What if my car breaks down …,”  “What if I get sick and can’t work …,”  “What if my child gets hooked on drugs?”  What if – anything our desperate imaginings can project. Only two small words, yet how heavy-laden they are with dread, fear and anxiety. The answer to, “What if …,”  is, plainly and simply, “Don’t project.”  We can only live with our problems as they arise, living one day at a time.

Am I keeping my thoughts positive?

Today I Pray

May I grow spiritually, without being held back by anxieties. May projected fears not hobble my pursuits or keep me from making the most of today. May I turn out fear by faith. If I will only make a place for God within me, He will remove my fears.

Today I Will Remember
I can only borrow trouble at high interest rates.
