As alcoholics and addicts, we could not tolerate our own company for long. We avoided having to think, let alone think about ourselves. We were terrified of being alone because we would begin to think about what was happening in our lives. We did not want to face it or our responsibilities. As we grew, we began to develop an awareness of who we are. We now know, like, and love ourselves better now, and this awareness brings with it a knowledge of God, self, and others.
Today I will ask for God’s help to grow in understanding of how to build my spiritual wealth. I will ask for the nourishment of my soul and the help to transmit to others what I’ve been so freely given through grace.
