We’ve all been there – staring into the depths of our glass, wondering if this time it’ll silence that voice in our heads telling us we need a drink. If you’ve ever felt like this and are struggling to stay sober, then today’s “Daily Reflection” is just what you need to help keep your sobriety journey going strong. On this January 28th, let’s come together and reflect on how far we have come since taking our first step towards recovery and look ahead with hope for a brighter future!
Daily Reflections January 28
Showing others who suffer how we were given help is the very thing which makes life seem so worth while to us now. Cling to the thought that, in God’s hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have—the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them.

The greatest gifts are oftentimes found in the most unlikely of places. Through past hardships, we can discover an incredible capacity for compassion and understanding that helps others through their own trials. Even our lowest moments have purpose; they show us what lies at the heart of true healing – God’s grace is always within reach!
Life is about learning and growing. Each day brings with it a new possibility to gain insight, create change, and approach our lives from a place of strength rather than overwhelming defeat.
I never would have realized the power of my own experiences just a few years ago; however, they have become my foundation for helping others through similar times of despair.
Reflection on our daily experiences is perhaps one of the most crucial practices if we wish to truly be able to traverse the depths of our being and tap into the greater understanding that lays beneath them.
The pain and torment that we experience in life can only be used to build up those around us, when viewed through a lens guided by love and compassion. May the grace of God remain within us today, forever reminding us that we are never alone on this journey.
