“We are sure God wants us to be happy, joyous, and free.” (Big Book, p. 133) God knows what we need in order to experience joy and freedom. Trouble comes because we become convinced the things we want will bring us happiness. How many times have we desperately wanted something that only brought us misery? On the other hand, how many times have we fought or avoided something that ended up being a blessing? “Being all-powerful, He provided what we needed, if we kept close to Him and performed His work well.” (Big Book, Page 51)
Today, I will thank God for providing what I need. I will take action so I may remain focused on spiritual growth and not on what I think I want.
