A Day at a Time

Reflection for the Day 
For those of us who have lost our faith, or who have always had to struggle along without it, it’s often helpful just to accept – blindly and with no reservations. It’s not necessary for us to believe at first; we need not be convinced. If we can only accept, we find ourselves becoming gradually aware of a force for good that’s always there to help us. 
Have I taken the way of faith? 
Today I Pray 
May I abandon my need to know the why’s and wherefore’s of my trust in a Higher Power. May I not intellectualize about faith, since by its nature it precludes analysis. May I know that “head-tripping” was a symptom of my disease, as I strung together – cleverly, I thought – alibi upon excuse upon rationale. May I learn acceptance – and faith will follow. 
Today I Will Remember 
Faith follows acceptance.
