Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life. Eleanor Roosevelt

We are not here without purpose. We are being called to fulfill a destiny. When we look around, we’ll see men and women who have been invited to share this spirit-filled journey. As sharing, caring members of the recovering community, we’ll see God is orchestrating our life and our growth as individuals.

Our program has given us the gift of rebirth. We have memories of more difficult, pain-filled times. Many of us through some miracle escaped death. We’ve been given another chance for a good life.

We’re asked only to try to help someone else discover a second chance, too. When we do, we know it’s not coincidence that we’re here sharing recovery at this time. We have work ahead of us, work that we don’t want to turn our back on. We know this work is God’s will for us and is meant to bring peace, joy, and gratitude.

Today I will remember that I am necessary to others, that my life is not an accident, and that God has a purpose for me.

Hazelden Foundation
