Daily Reflections February 22
. . . this means a belief in a Creator who is all power, justice, and love; a God who intends for me a purpose, a meaning, and a destiny to grow, however . . . haltingly, toward His own likeness and image.
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 51
As I allowed myself to accept my limitations and recognize the power of a Higher Power, it became clear that life could be different. Through continued work in recovery – through conversations, connection with others in fellowship, and consciously seeking knowledge about God – all aspects have developed together into something bigger than me alone.
And as I come closer to understanding His ways more deeply, He has revealed Himself bit by bit; inviting me further down this most meaningful path towards becoming like Him– no matter how quickly or slowly that takes place.
We can all relate to the struggles that go into the journey of growing in our faith and our understanding of God. Instead of relying on ourselves, we must let God work within us and through us, for only then can we reach the pinnacle of mental peace and tranquility as children of God.
Even though it may take time and effort, it is possible to come closer every day to embodying His image and likeness. In just one day’s reflection, this post has demonstrated how powerful a life centered around scriptures and fellowship can be in building spiritual maturity.
Let us never neglect our walk with Him but instead strive to continue down the path so that He will be pleased with the progress we make with each passing day.
