Remember My Deliverance
The meditation for today urged “never grow numb to your dynamic salvation.” (Psalm 103:2)
Don’t take for granted that deliverance, the writer seemed to say to me, from where I was, to where I am; nor fear where I am headed.
Given the times we live in and my age and stage, I need that reminder! (Isaiah 46:3-5)
I was delivered out of the obsession to drink by the examples I saw in others and the kindness of a power greater than I am who heard me.
Come to think of it that “power” made others’ calm and serenity look good to me!

Turning from that obsession — to keep trying to handle what I could not — can not — is key to a bunch of issues that crop up in sobriety.
I can’t; God can. Am I willing to let Him? (Need Help? )
Use the Key
Acceptance is the key, and deliverance is never passive. One day at a time — hoping, doing, asking, applying, and changing what I can while letting go of what I can’t.
How goes it with you, Reader? I appreciate your time; thanks for stopping.
