TODAY I AM FOCUSSED ON LETTING GO


Sunday, November 11, 2012

TODAY I AM HUMBLED BY THE COMFORT OF MY HIGHER POWER AND THE GRACE AND PEACE WHICH COMES FROM LETTING GO AND HANDING OVER ALL THAT WEIGHS ON US TO OUR HIGHER POWER. I AM PRACTICING LETTING GO OF JUDGEMENT, LETTING GO OF CONTROL, AND ALLOWING MY HIGHER POWER TO TAKE THE WHEEL (AS CARRIE UNDERWOOD SINGS IN "JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL"). THIS IS NO SMALL FEAT FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME WHO HAS A TENDANCY TO WANT TO "TAKE CHARGE".

I NOW CASE MANAGE 39 MEMBERS OF THE GILA RIVER INDIAN COMMUNITY. NEVER HAS A MESSAGE OF LETTING GO BEEN MORE POWERFUL THAN WHEN WORKING WITH ADDICTION. MY "LOGICAL" BRAIN WANTS TO "FIX" THINGS FOR ALL IN NEED. HOWEVER, AS A HUMAN BEING, I AM AWARE OF MY POWERLESSNESS TO MOTIVATE SOMEONE TO CHANGE. WHAT I CAN OFFER IS A GREAT DEAL OF COMPASSION, LOVE, AND ACCEPTANCE OF ALL WHOM MY HIGHER POWER SENDS MY WAY. EACH HUMAN BEING IS A GIFT AND I WISH TO PLANT A SEED OF WELLNESS IN ALL WHOM I COME INTO CONTACT WITH. I AM HUMBLED BY THE HUMAN SPIRIT AND THE AMOUNT OF PAIN THAT SOME HUMANS CARRY WITH THEM. MAY EVERYONE COME TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE HIGHER POWER HAS A PLAN THAT MAY NOT BE THE ONE WE MAY HAVE CHOSEN, BUT NEVER THE LESS IS A PERFECT PLAN FOR OUR LIFE JOURNEY.
AMEN!
